Research Methods and Skills

Consumer market research for innovative products or services, impact studies of ICT projects, poverty assessments of households, studies on employee well-being, and impact of migration flows on countries are all examples of research conducted as input for evidence-based decision-making processes. Research is thus not only vital in academia, but also in companies, governmental institutes and NGOs.

In this executive training programme, you are trained in reviewing and critically assessing extant research as well as in developing, executing and presenting your own research project.

The programme begins September 15 and will be delivered during 12 weeks, consisting of 8 weeks of coursework and 4 weeks of proposal development. The programme can be followed full-time face-to-face, partly online or via a modular approach.

Venue: MSM, Maastricht / Online
