Objective of the module/integration into the curriculum:

In order to incorporate the latest research results into the course of study, students analyze current data sets in the Major Management seminar using empirical and methodological techniques. While the previous lectures provide a broad knowledge base, this course prepares students to generate and investigate concrete research questions.

Teaching contents of the module:

In this module, depending on the selected seminar, students will work on changing current issues in the areas of "Organization and Personnel", "Strategic Management and Start-ups", "Corporate Management" or "Entrepreneurship" in an individual written elaboration. The results are presented and defended by the students in the plenum. During this process, the students organize themselves to discuss and exchange their research results. The topics come from the superior research area of the respective fields and take up current business problems and phenomena. More recent research results are thus to be integrated into the lectures and discussed extensively. The students' own empirical or theoretical-methodical analyses as well as the inclusion of international aspects are consistently promoted. The overriding goal of the seminars is to combine theoretical concepts with practice-oriented applications and to lay the foundation for independent scientific work.

Subject-related skills
