Ablauf der LV bei eingeschränktem Campusbetrieb

In case it is not possible to offer the course normally, i.e. in presence mode for all participants, the following plan B becomes effective: Distance mode. More specifically, the sessions will be held interactively via MS Teams at the scheduled times (i.e. virtual synchronous course units). Students are expected to comply to the set dates and attend at least 80% of the sessions. Performance is assessed as described above (n.b. group assignments are to be executed virtually; the final written assignment is not an exam, but a written assignment to be handed in within four weeks after the last session).

Inhalte der LV

The course covers the foundations of scientific research. Each unit will focus on particular skills which are relevant to the successful completion of a Bachelor paper.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

Upon completion of this course students will be able to: - develop a research proposal for their bachelor paper in the field of "International Business" which is both scientifically relevant and practically feasible - understand and competently apply the basic principles of empirical research in the social sciences to the field of "International Business" study - formulate clear cause-and-effect relationships in the context of "International Business" and derive and formulate well-defined hypotheses - apply basic methods for testing hypotheses and developing theoretical models - self-manage the bachelor paper research and writing process - meet the fomal criteria of a bachelor paper - present the results of scientific paper or research

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

Students may miss 1 session. However, they will not be able to collect contribution points for the respective session missed.


The course format is primarily interactive including group assignments, presentations and discussions. Students will learn to apply relevant concepts of scientific research to practical exercises discussed in class.

Leistung(en) für eine Beurteilung

The final grade will be composed by individual class participation (30%), group assignments (30%) and a final written assignment (40%). Absences from class reduce overall class participation and therefore negatively impact the individual final grade.
