Quantitative Paper 1
The second publishable paper is a result of a four-course series focused on statistical analyses, data collection, visualization, and academic writing. Students build upon the conceptual framework laid out in their first paper to produce a full publishable academic paper detailing their primary research methods as it relates to their problem of practice. Students are encouraged to submit this paper to academic conferences.
Course: Quantitative Research Methods 1; Data Collection: Surveys; Visualization & Communication; Academic Writing
DBA students will lead a second workshop focusing on their conclusions from the execution and evaluation of their applied research on a problem of practice. Like the first practicum, the goal of this workshop is to drive change through impact-driven research presentations.
