BUS 7920 Qualitative Approaches to Research (3 units)
This course is intended to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to do qualitative research at a doctoral level. Qualitative research focuses on understanding, rather than predicting or controlling, phenomena. It is usually contrasted with traditional experimental and statistical research. Included in this course will be the discussion and application of five principle qualitative methodologies: case study, ethnography, phenomenology, narrative, and grounded theory. Participants will also learn the associated skills of interviewing and observation. The main objective of the course is for students to learn the practicalities, scope and nature of qualitative research and to appreciate its rigour and procedures.
