CARMA hosts short course program at WSU

The Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) at Wayne State University hosted their first set of research methods short courses for 2012 on the WSU campus from May 11 to 19.

The courses drew participants from 47 universities, including Carnegie Mellon University, Colorado State University, Indiana University, Michigan State University, Northwestern University, and Purdue University. WSU was also well-represented, with participants from the School of Business Administration, School of Social Work, Department of Psychology, and College of Education.

A total of 119 faculty and doctoral students participated in the program, many of them in multiple courses, filling a total of 219 spots.

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 host other short courses in Hong Kong and China.

CARMA is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to assisting faculty, graduate students and professionals with learning about current developments in several areas of research methods and statistics, particularly those issues relevant to the management and organizational sciences.
