CARMA Summer Short Courses - Research Methods for Management and Organization Studies


Dear Colleagues:


I am pleased to send you information about upcoming Summer Short Courses on management research methods topics in May and June of 2010 hosted by Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Reservations for our Short Courses are now available on our website! Please be sure to reserve early as space is limited.


CARMA is an interdisciplinary center with a management/organizational emphasis. Last summer, nearly 200 faculty and doctoral students from universities throughout the United States and abroad participated in one or more of our short course events.

Overview of Courses and Instructors

On our website, you can find course summaries and abstracts, along with instructor biographies for these short courses and past years' CARMA Short Course Participant evaluation summaries. To access these materials, please visit our website at: http://www.carma.vcu.edu 


Each of the short courses includes an equal balance of lecture and lab time with hands-on experience with an emphasis on the application of the method. We have a very talented set of instructors for our Short Courses, many of whom are Editors, Past Editors, or Editorial Board members from our leading management journals. They will help you not only learn the technical details of the research method or analysis technique you will be studying, but they will also help you understand how it is being applied in management and organizational research.


Cost for Attending

These courses are held in-person and DO NOT use distance learning technology. The price per course is $550 for students or $750 for faculty or professionals. This price includes lunches, a dinner, and all program materials.  There is also a 50% discount for faculty and students coming from over 140 schools participating in our Consortium Webcast Program or International Video Library Program (a list of participating schools is available on our website at http://www.carma.vcu.edu/CurrentConsortiumMembers.asp?pid=25&lpid=20).
