Leerdoelen Upon completion of this course, students are able to:
1. Evaluate the correctness of conclusions based on elements of logic and scientific reasoning
2. Interpret and evaluate the research methodology adopted in academic papers on topics in economics and business science
Omschrijving This course focuses on relevant issues of scientific reasoning, research methodology and philosophy of science, respectively.
In this course students are exposed to a great variety of concepts and theories from the philosophy of social science and research methodology. Why? The idea is that it is relatively easy to just do a piece of research straightforwardly. But to be truly successful requires creativity and 'out-of-the-box' thinking. One must look at the field from a different point of view to find innovative solutions to old questions, or to ask interesting and relevant new questions.
