If, due to strict Covid-19 measures, it is not possible to hold this course on the WU campus, it will instead be held in synchronous hybrid mode.
The contents of the individual course units are held in presence for some of the participants. At the same time, the course for all students who cannot be on site is synchronized (at the times announced in the VVZ) by means of MS TEAMS. The invitation links will be made available on time. Should there be changes at short notice, we will inform you as soon as possible.
Current topics in supply chain management
Special focus on sustainable supply chain management and humanitarian logistics
Quantitative and qualitative research methods
The seminar aims to keep doctoral students up to date with respect to recent developments in the supply chain and logistics community. It serves as a platform for doctoral students to present and discuss their research work. Students receive feedback with respect to conceptual, theoretical, and methodological issues and acquire new research ideas.
After visiting this seminar students should have acquired the skills to conduct critical research reviews, to design and carry out methodologically sound research projects, to write papers that can be published in international peer-reviewed journals, and to present at international conferences.
Full attendance is required.
Student presentations and discussion
Written summary of a research method
Students will be assessed based on the presentation of the status quo of their dissertation (50 %), class contributions (20%), and their summary of a research method (30 %).
