CARMA announces short courses at Wayne State
The Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) will be hosting 16 short courses at Wayne State University, from May 11-19, 2012. CARMA is an interdisciplinary center devoted to helping faculty, graduate students and professionals learn of current developments in various areas of research methods and statistics. CARMA’s focus is on research methods relevant to the management and organizational sciences.
Each short course will be a two-and-a-half-day session on a research method or data analysis topic. CARMA short courses place an emphasis on hands-on experience and the application of the methodology. Participants develop skills through equal amounts of lecture and lab time.
Instructors are leading methodological scholars recognized within the organizational studies and management areas as experts on their topics. Several are current or past editors of leading organizational journals.
The short courses include introductory and advanced training on topics that might not be readily available at many institutions. They also provide the students and faculty opportunities to network with leading scholars and other students and faculty in their interest areas.
More than 1,200 faculty and students from universities throughout the world have attended CARMA short courses since the summer of 2004. In addition to the courses at WSU, CARMA will be hosting other short courses in Australia, the Netherlands, Israel and China.
