统计运算与数据分析

This course introduces you to a variety of techniques and considerations important in dealing with data analyses in management research. You will be exposed to descriptive and inferential methods and learn about their underlying assumptions, correct usage, and proper interpretation.

This course is not simply a “statistics” one but emphasizes the application of statistical techniques in management research. You will learn more detailed nuances of relevant statistical procedures in different courses; this course is designed to give you a good start of making sense of others’ research and of conducting your own research. In addition, this course is not of a “software” one: although I will use Excel, SPSS, AMOS, and other software to illustrate how you can “get things done,” the focus will be how to make sense of the statistic outcomes obtained from the software and how to conduct next steps in your research.

You will gain experience through a variety of problems, critiques, and data analysis projects. Critiques are primarily based on articles published in the Academy of Management Journal, so students will also attain a high degree of familiarity with articles published in that journal and the norms associated with that journal.

Organizational Behavior

The purpose of this research-based course is to review the major theories of organizational behavior and leadership and their uses in organizational settings. We will take a broad view in our analysis, looking at causes and consequences of different major domains in organizational behavior.

Course Objectives

1) Understanding the existing theory and research.

2) Developing research ideas that can and should be done to further our knowledge about a topic.

3) Developing a good sense about how to publish on top journals

Methods and Design in Management Research

This course addresses the fundamentals of research in social sciences in general and of research in management and organization in particular. As an integral part of the Ph.D. training, the course aims to introduce to students what research is about and the skills and knowledge that each stage of the research process requires. Students will be exposed to a broad (though not comprehensive) range of research strategies and techniques that are commonly used in major social science disciplines. The topics include but are not limited to what is science, what is applied science, where research questions come from, what is theory, how to make hypotheses interesting, different approaches to and functions of literature review, operationalization and measurement, major research strategies such as experiment, survey, archival data, and qualitative research, how to process and analyze data, academic writing and publishing, and academic talk and communication. The goal is to help students to gain an overall understanding of key methodologies, establish a catalog of the fundamental research skills, develop critical and creative thinking, learn to evaluate and appreciate others’ research, and get prepared to initiate and manage their own research projects that potentially lead to publications on top international journals.

Multivariate Analysis and SEM in Management Research

This course focuses on two broad categories of multivariate analyses. The first half of the course focuses on data analyses for experimental (and quasi-experimental) designs. Topics include but not limited to analyses for one/two/multi-factor experiments with between-subjects, within-subjects, or mixed designs, the interaction between categorical variables and between categorical and continuous variables, and planned contrasts to interpret 2-way and higher order interactions. Techniques of using SPSS and customizing syntax code will also be introduced. The second half of the course focuses on structural equation modeling (SEM) including measurement model testing and structural model testing. Topics include but not limited to model conceptualization, model specification, parameter estimation, model fit assessment, model comparison, modification and cross-validation. LISREL will be used to illustrate the syntax writing and output interpretation.

Entrepreneurship Research: an integrated perspective

Strategic entrepreneurship (SE), as an area of research, borrows from, and integrates entrepreneurial and strategic theoretical perspectives in an attempt to explain competitive advantage and entrepreneurial activity. Discovering and exploiting opportunities is the cornerstone of the entrepreneurial challenge of (emerging) organizations, while strategic management is about advantage seeking actions of organizations. The combination of these perspectives and areas of research generates interesting new theoretical vistas and research questions for examining central organizational phenomena in China and worldwide.

The strategic entrepreneurship course is based on the Co-evolution Strategy framework developed by Prof. Jiangyong Lu, in his recent book “Co-evolution Strategy” which integrate four basic components of strategy, and four phases of firm development. The course lasts for 12 weeks. The reading list covers foundation of strategic entrepreneurship, customer, organization, product, market, start-up phase, growing-up phase, expansion phase, and transformation phase.

As a frontier discussion seminar, this course aims to familiarize students with frontier research in strategic management and assist students to identify their area of research interest. This course covers topics including strategic decisions, innovation and entrepreneurship, internationalization, human resources and strategic change. Through in class discussion participants will develop an understanding of literature stream, critically review extant studies, identify research gap and propose their research questions.

Sociological Foundation for Management

This course is an introduction to the major sociological approaches and ongoing debates that are relevant to the field of management. It draws insights primarily from the field of organization theory, economic sociology, and political sociology. The purpose of the discussion is to help students to explain the origins, persistence, and disappearance of the institutional structures that order economic life (organizations, firms, networks, markets, and others). Students will read some of the classic statements of the major approaches and trace the history of ideas as the field has developed up to the present. By the end of the course, students should have a good understanding of which debates are susceptible to empirical resolution, choosing appropriate units of analysis, as well as positioning their studies in a proper literature. With this guideline, students should be well prepared to generate original research ideas that advance the discourse in their chosen area.

Human Resource Management

The purpose of this graduate seminar is to examine the role of human resource management as an important strategic component of the entire organization strategy, and to better understand how firms can use their human resource management practices to effectively transform individual level KSAOs to unit level human capital, which contribute to firms’ overall growth. Toward this end, we will take a multi-level approach to discuss the theoretical foundations, determinants, influence processes, performance implications, and contingencies of strategic human resource management. The goal of this course is to help students become more familiar with the conceptual models and empirical evidence relevant to such human capital issue. In addition, the course will also help students to build their skills in evaluating research and the degree to which it contributes to knowledge and practice. More importantly, students’ capability to design and conduct research in the HRM area will be enhanced.

研究生“管理学”(管理机制研究)课程简述

“管理学”课程对研究生而言,其核心在于“管理机制研究”。

管理机制是什么?从功能系统的角度,总体上可以将“管理”看作是为追求“有成果的效率”,由管理对象体、管理者及一系列管理工具构成的功能系统。这个系统大致由十多个功能要素组成,如对象体、管理者、意图、模式、配置、规则、运行、沟通、激励、产出、习惯、变革等。这十多个要素既依序影响又交互作用,呈现出多要素切合,顺序联动;或者多指向联接,交互联动;或是长短循环路径的选择;或是联合对象体的“多体组合、集成协调、双系统运转”等不同的联动机制。管理机制就是由不同管理要素构成、相互联接相互作用,由此使对象体的运行更有成果、更有效率、更具有持续性。

“管理机制研究”就是从管理者和管理对象体出发,理解各部分的基本功能,界定相关范畴和规则,研讨管理系统中各部分的交互作用,以及这种作用渗透于对象体时所发生的结果及效率的变化。在管理机制研讨基础上,以研究组为基本单位进行竞争决策模拟与团队管理训练活动,以便进一步体验管理机制,发现管理问题。学习成效的考核重点在于:通过研讨能否在管理机制上有新的见解、在团队管理上有新的收获,能否归纳出的值得研究的管理问题,对这些管理问题能否有战略性的对策等,以便对今后的研究工作有所启示。

“管理学”(管理机制研究)课程面对学术型研究生。其基本目标是:在管理的基本范畴、基本理论和基本方法的基础上理解管理架构与管理流程内在的相互关联;面对管理问题,运用管理机制,提高感觉问题、界定问题、分析问题和解决问题的能力;为管理类研究生的后续课程提供先行基础,为将来从事研究工作提供管理分析架构。

Economics Foundation of Strategy and Organization

This course discusses the topics of theory of industrial organization and game theory, theory of firm, transaction cost theory, agency theory, contract theory and economics of platform. The empirical evidences related to above mentioned theories will be discussed. The course emphasizes the complementarities among those theories and the integration of these theories to formulate a broad perspective of strategy and organization. The cutting edge of theoretical development will also be discussed. The implications of these theories to empirical regularities and business practices are highlighted.

Philosophy of Management Research

This doctoral level course is a brief introduction to scientific work in organizations and management. It focuses on a few of the key issues in the philosophy and the conduct of science. These are central to the work of a scientist in constructing understanding and explanation of important phenomena in our natural and social world. The issues pervade both natural and social sciences and they help us gain clarity on the role of scientific research in advancing the practice of management, which has the important role of integrating business technology and humanity, i.e., how firms may influence the wellbeing of both those working in them and those affected by them, i.e., employees, consumers, and society. The role of science or of the scientist, if not understood properly can impede our scientific work, impair knowledge and stall scientific discoveries.

The course explores some of these questions: What is scientific reasoning and explanation? What are the unique challenges in social science relative to natural science? How does progress and development in scientific knowledge come about? What role do values play in science? What is the development of science in the management and organization discipline? How do science contribute to both the progress and the demise of the human condition? How can we as budding scientists contribute to the progress in the science of management and organizations, and hence humanity? What does it mean to pursue a career in organization science?

Strategy Research: Foundation and Domain

This is a graduate level seminar on selected topics in classics in strategy research. In each class, we will discuss and develop a particular perspective on these topics. The basic purpose of the course is to familiarize students with the basic assumptions, concepts, theories, empirical approaches and their limitations in contemporary research in these areas. Because these are evolving subject areas and undergoing continual change, the boundaries of the field are fuzzy, subjective and open to interpretation and reinterpretation. The idea of the course is to provide an exposure to the major ‘lenses’ underpinning these phenomena.

The emphasis in this course will be on empirical testing as well as theory building. We will examine some of the fundamental tests of theories. We will also try to push the boundaries of the familiar and new theoretical perspectives, and possibly identify opportunities for cross-fertilization. In each case, we will attempt to derive testable predictions. Finally, we will integrate the various perspectives and attempt to inform the current debates in the field.

Psychological Foundations for Management

This course provides a doctoral-level overview of micro-level research and theory in organizational behavior. The course will be a collaborative effort of all the participants, orchestrated by the instructor. Each student is expected to be extensively involved in class discussion, and to bring your understanding of the readings. You are also encouraged to connect with other concepts and ideas from the literature. If you run into an article that you think is particularly good and relevant, please bring it to us so that we can incorporate it into the readings.

Aspiration, Learning and Knowledge

This seminar focuses onthreecriticaltheoretical domains in strategic management literature, i.e.,aspiration, organizational learning, and knowledge management.The investigation and integration of the three domains help explain a variety of interesting strategic issues, such as organizational cognition, organizational development, organizational change, innovation and dynamic capabilities.The reading materials coverfundamental and advanced work on both conceptual developmentand empiricaltest in these areas.Participants are required to read assigned book chapters/articles in advance and to be actively engaged in each session. This seminar is aimed to improve participants’ understanding about more fundamental drives and mechanisms underlying firms’ strategic behavior.
