Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. develop and motivate a research question about an HRM topic which is relevant from academic and professional perspectives;
2. ground the research question in literature and build a conceptual framework in which concepts are clearly defined and their relationships systematically clarified;
3. choose and apply a methodology to answer the research question in a systematic and scientific manner;
4. collect and analyze quantitative and/or qualitative data with the appropriate (statistical) techniques;
5. discuss the limitations and theoretical and practical implications of the research findings in relation to the research question;
6. write, present, and defend a scientific research report.
Omschrijving The Master’s Thesis logically flows from the Research and Professional Skills for HRM course. In the Research Skills part of that course, students will write a research proposal in which they specify a research question, transform this into hypotheses, and propose a methodology to assess these. During the Master’s Thesis, students will carry out this research proposal in order to (empirically) assess the research question and proposed hypotheses. The Master’s Thesis has an appointed starting moment and an appointed moment of submission (i.e., deadline). The thesis report should be written in the form of a journal article as outlined in the thesis brochure "Short and Good".
