Course content

This research-centered seminar is open to anyone interested in empirical research on Information Systems and Digitalization. The aim of this seminar is to provide Master and PhD students with a deeper understanding of empirical academic research, with a thematic focus on Information Systems and Digitalization.

In the seminar we will:
  • critically examine selected current research work
  • discuss it in regular meetings in small groups
  • participate in presentations of invited authors
  • debate with the authors about their research and gain additional perspectives on
    the development processes of their work

The willingness to read and discuss academic papers is a crucial prerequisite for participation in this course.
