PHD Information Systems COURSES

CIS 511. RESEARCH TOPICS AND METHODS IN INFORMATION SYSTEMS

There are three objectives of this course. The first objective is to review several important research streams that received extensive attentions in the IS community over the past few years, and also explore potential topics that may emerge as important ones in the near future. The second objective is to review important methodology issues that IS researchers routinely take care of, and also introduce some less commonly used but prominent methods that may be valuable in future IS research. The third objective is to train PhD students to think critically and rigorously, and to gradually develop a good sense of how significant and interesting a given research project is and reviewers might react to it.

This course introduces students to research areas in Computers and Information Systems (CIS) and Operations Management (OM).
