This special EMBA thesis and research course has three parts. The first reviews how different kinds of information and strategies can help participants answer the widely varied questions their research projects pose. It’s followed by a thesis workshop where participants discuss their individual questions and methods to refine and develop them further. Last but not least, they attend the thesis defenses of graduating classmates. The core challenges addressed in the course include suitability and clarity of research questions and methods, a project’s strengths and weaknesses, presentation of the research question and the use of empirical material in answering it.
