Are you a PhD student?

Free PhD course at Nord University Business School Autumn 2021
If you are, this free course at the Nord University Business School teaching you an inter-disciplinary approach in conventional studies is for you.

​An increasing number of research communities in social science acknowledge the need for inter-disciplinary approach in conventional studies. In such conditions, understanding the 'theoretical lenses' repertoire and its potential to extend previous knowledge becomes crucial under the quest for contribution to the literature.

Nord University Business Shcool in Bodø now offers a course where the overall aim of this course is to learn and reflect upon the contemporary streams of institutional theory and their application to management and accounting research. 

The course is called "ECO9001 Contemporary strands of institutional theory and their application to management and accounting".

The course runs September 7-9, 2021 and November 2-3, 2021

Specifically, the course ambition is to equip PhD students with a deeper understanding of institutional logics, institutional entrepreneurship and institutional work, and how these streams can be connected to their own research projects. These three streams of institutional theory are becoming increasingly valuable in management and accounting research.
