The TBRP (Theory Building Research Programme) PhD course aims to acquaint PhD students with the process of theorizing and theory building in management research. We start from the premise that it is critical for PhD students to master the process of theorizing and theory development from the extant knowledge and empirical data quite early in their Doctoral studies.
By the end of the course the PhD candidates will have gained skills and knowledge in (a) gaining sensitivity to theoretical development during the literature review process, and (b) analyzing and theorizing from qualitative data.
The PhD course will be delivered using a mixture of lecture-based and interactive teaching methods, including group assignments and feedback to PhD candidates on their identified issues and challenges.
This PhD course attracts, as primary target, PhD candidates in their first eighteen months of the doctoral programme. However, we also welcome PhD candidates in their later stages of the doctoral programme. The course admits maximum 20 students.
