Business Analytics: Research Seminar [BARS]
In this research seminar, students will get to know business analytics as a scientific research field. In introductory block lessons, students will learn about the process of developing research ideas, strategies to efficiently pursue these research ideas, and guidelines on how to clearly convey their ideas in a research paper. Students will also get to know the publication process of research papers. After these introductory lessons, students will jump into the shoes of reviewers. For this, each participant will choose a research paper from a given pool of papers from the fields of computer science or information systems. Each paper will then be summarized, critically reviewed, and presented by the students and discussed in detail by all participants.
The goal of this research seminar is, to prepare students for a master’s thesis, so that they are able to answer a concrete research question in the field of business analytics. This course is taught together with Prof. Zschech (Intelligent Information Systems). For details about the course, see StudOn.
