RES 8001 - Qualifying Research Seminar


The primary focus of this course is on helping students narrow their research interests and develop a Research Brief that identities a gap in the global leadership scholarship and suggests a specific research area for further investigation. Students will also discuss potential research designs for their projects, develop research questions or hypotheses, work on operationalization of their variables, and formulate practical applications of their research. The course will address both the philosophical and methodological issues of students’ projects. Ethical and diversity issues (protection of human subjects, cultural and language issues) will be considered. Students with approved Research Briefs will start working on their Research Prospectus. The second goal of the course is to evaluate students’ progress in the program and assess their readiness as scholars to conduct an independent research project (their dissertation). Hence, students will conclude the course with the Global Leadership Paper where they explore several original topics suggested by the course professor. Credit(s): 3
