TU Dresden | Sommersemester 2024 Researching International Organizational Behavior

Researching International Organizational Behavior

Master Course: Researching International Organizational Behavior

Summer Term 2024

This course conveys knowledge regarding the research process of studying organizational behavior in an international context.

Instructor: Jun.-Prof. Dr. Sebastian Störmer

Objectives: Students are introduced to and learn about the different research traditions to be found in the studies on international organizational behavior. In that vein, students approach a current topic in the realms of international organizational behavior and dissect it through the use of a scientific lens. In conjunction with this, students improve their analytical, writing, and presentation skills. Eventually, the seminar prepares students for their (empirical) master thesis.

Topical Focus:

In the 2024 summer term, students can select their topic from a wide range of pertinent subjects within international organizational behavior. Examples are, but are not confined to: personality and cross-cultural adjustment, expatriate-local relations, global mobility and dual career couples, or global virtual teams, etc. Students will develop a research proposal for an empirical study – quantitative or qualitative – as a hypothetical blueprint to an empirical examination of their topic of choice.
