The module consists of three integrated components: 1) organisational theory, 2) qualitative method 3) project work.
In the module, students will work with different perspectives of organisational theory on how to understand and analyse an organisation and its various processes. The different perspectives of organisational theory will be linked to their respective underlying scientific method approaches. Therefore the module will also introduce different scientific method approaches to the study of business economics phenomena and issues. Thus, this organisational field will be used as a subject field when practising the use of scientific method approaches. Both organisational theory and the scientific method approaches constitute important elements in the project work.
