Students are admitted into one of RCB's PhD programs
Action research offers unique opportunities to study business practices through projects that are planned, and often executed, in close collaboration with firms and stakeholders. Students critique exemplar action research studies across different business disciplines and they study the roots and contemporary foundation for designing and executing rigorous action research in business studies. The students learn how to organize and present action research projects including: area of concern, theoretical framing, practical problem solving, data collection and analysis, and research contributions. Also, they develop an understanding of how action research can be combined with other research methods and practical problem solving methods to conduct and present business studies.
