The overall objective is to develop knowledge and understanding of scientific research methods and to provide skills to design and accomplish a research project in Management, performing analyses using qualitative and quantitative research methods and to communicate the results.

  • considering ethical aspects of research strategy,
  • defining sample/cases and applying quantitative and/or qualitative methods for collecting, expressing and analysing empirical material,
  • presenting the results,
