Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course introduces key concepts and fundamental questions in the scholarly study of innovation, which are relevant for the graduate students with interest in the innovation field per se as well as for those with innovation as a setting in which to study other issues. Considering that innovation happens to be an extremely broad term of interest to many scholarly communities and disciplines (e.g., engineering, management, sociology, economics), we will focus on the innovation literature that engages with management, particularly from a strategy perspective. The course allows the students to explore important, contemporary issues about strategy and innovation in organizational contexts from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. Special focus will be devoted to measuring in innovation management research field.

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Critical review and presentation of empirical paper
    During the course the students will be assigned one empirical article for individual analysis. You will need to prepare a critical review of the assigned article, including: theoretical view and argument development, research question(s), method, findings, meaning and significance of the contributions, shortcomings/opportunities for further studies. You will present this critical review during the class and organize the discussion of presented study. The presentation should be submitted via email one day before the class. This assignment should be done individually.
  • non-blocking Research paper proposal
    Each student will be asked to create a detailed research paper proposal at the end of the course, which reviews and synthesizes the research literature. This proposal should focus on a viable research topic centered in your own area of interest (strategy, international business, entrepreneurship, innovation, organization theory, human resources, etc.), dealing with issues related to innovation studies. The ultimate proposed study can take any form (e.g., conventional qualitative/quantitative empirical paper, meta-analysis, theory development, systematic literature review, practitioner paper). This assignment should be done individually.
  • non-blocking Class participation, discussion, estimations, quizzes
    During each class the students should actively participate in discussion, make estimations and pass quizzes. Class discussions and interactions are the essential part of our synthesis of the material and subsequent learning. It is therefore vital that you come to every class prepared and ready to contribute. Good participation implies critical analysis of the literature, asking questions, raising original ideas, making constructive comments, and having a positive attitude toward learning.
  • non-blocking Presentation of the basic paper and class discussion
    During the course the students will be assigned one basic article for individual analysis. You will need to prepare a brief overview of the assigned article, including: definitions, justification of the concept and its core principles, academic and practical implications. You will present this overview during the class and organize the discussion of presented concept. The presentation should be submitted via email one day before the class This assignment can be done individually or in groups up to three students.
