MS&E 376: Strategy Doctoral Research Seminar

Classic and current research on business and corporate strategy. Limited enrollment, restricted to PhD students. Prerequisites: SOC 363 or equivalent, and permission of instructor. Course may be repeated for credit.
Terms: Aut, alternate years, not given next year | Units: 3 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 379: Social Data Analysis

Applied introduction to good empirical research and causal inference for social scientists and others analyzing social data. Designed to provide an introduction to some of the most commonly used quantitative techniques for causal inference in social data including: survey design and inference, regression and propensity score matching, instrumental variables, differences-in-differences, regression discontinuity designs, standard errors, and the analysis of big data. Applications: organizations, entrepreneurship, public policy, innovation, economics, online education, visual representations, communication, critique and design of figures, graphs. Does not explicitly cover social network structure or machine learning as these topics are well-covered elsewhere. Students work in groups and individually to design and carry out a small research project based on the use of analytics, large data sets, or other digital innovations related to business or other organizations. Students become acquainted with a variety of approaches to research design, and are helped to develop their own research projects. Course prioritizes a thorough substantively grounded understanding of assumptions over mathematical proofs and derivations. Aimed at PhD students, but open by permission to Master's students and to students in other Stanford programs with relevant coursework or experience in analytics and statistics.

MS&E 382: Social Network Perspectives on Organizing: Theories and Methods

Review of theoretical, conceptual, and analytic issues associated with network perspectives on organizing. Review of scholarship on the science of networks in communication, computer science, economics, engineering, organizational science, life sciences, physical sciences, political science, psychology, and sociology, in order to take an in-depth look at theories, methods, and tools to examine the structure and dynamics of networks. Discussion of assigned readings, a series of laboratory exercises providing experience with computer-based network analysis, modeling and visualization tools, and a term paper advancing some theoretical, methodological or computational aspect of network science.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 383: Doctoral Seminar on Ethnographic Research

For graduate students; upper-level undergraduates with consent of instructor. Interviewing and participant observation. Techniques for taking, managing, and analyzing field notes and other qualitative data. Methods texts and ethnographies offer examples of how to analyze and communicate ethnographic data. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 384: Groups and Teams

Research on groups and teams in organizations from the perspective of organizational behavior and social psychology. Topics include group effectiveness, norms, group composition, diversity, conflict, group dynamics, temporal issues in groups, geographically distributed teams, and intergroup relations.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 387: Design of Field Research Methods

Field research involves collecting original data (qualitative and/or quantitative) in field sites. This course combines informal lecture and discussion with practical exercises to build specific skills for conducting field research in organizations. Readings include books and papers about research methodology and articles that provide exemplars of field research. Specific topics covered include: the role of theory in field research, variance versus process models, collecting and analyzing different kinds of data (observation, interview, survey), levels of analysis, construct development and validity, blending qualitative and quantitative data (in a paper, a study, or a career), and writing up field research for publication. Students will develop intuition about the contingent relationship between the nature of the research question and the field research methods used to answer it as a foundation for conducting original field research.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 388: Contemporary Themes in Work and Organization Studies

Doctoral research seminar, limited to Ph.D. students. Current meso-level field research on organizational behavior, especially work and coordination. Topics: work design, job design, roles, teams, organizational change and learning, knowledge management, performance. Focus on understanding theory development and research design in contemporary field research. Topics change yearly. Recommended: course in statistics or research methods.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)
