I. Excellence Science and Research in Data Science and Management Research Methods
The ACISS Summer School offers a unique set of courses designed to meet the needs of novice and advanced researchers in research methods ranging from qualitative research and academic publishing to scale development and data mining. All classes will be highly interactive, method-, and application-oriented. Outstanding instructors from PennState, the University of Chile, the University of Leeds, the University of Vienna, and RWTH Aachen University will deliver the courses. All courses have been designed to equip you with insights into state-of-the-art research methods and supporting software packages. You will also have the opportunity to apply these insights in order to solve hands-on research problems and to discuss your findings with your peers. What better way to prepare for your empirical master thesis, PhD project, and journal publication?
During the week long courses, participants will have the opportunity to get in touch with their respective lecturer to discuss their own research projects. Current research projects or dissertations can be presented to receive feedback from a qualified third party.
III. Get-together with Researchers
All participants of the ACISS programme are invited to take part in get-togethers with researchers and academic staff at the RWTH Aachen University. There is a wide offer of intercultural activities and excursions in and around Aachen – enjoy your stay!
