Detailed description of content

The project work is performed in groups of 2-8 students. During the project work, students receive guidance from supervisors to an extent determined by the Study Board. Students following this curriculum may write the project together with students writing the same project in Economics and Business Administration.

Project process

Guidance on the use of quantitative methods in projects and theses.

If you and your group find quantitative analyses relevant to answer your research question, and your supervisor cannot help, here is an offer of assistance.

We offer a workshop where a group of researchers will talk about how to use quantitative data in projects and theses. We will present an overview of publicly available data sets, as well as the your possibilities, if you wish to collect your own data. We expect you to have taken a course in basic quantitative methods (BC 8 or equivalent).

The workshop is held on February 27, 2:15 pm – 16:00 pm, in theory room 06.2-007.

After the workshop you/your group will have the opportunity to book an appointment with a skilled student, Joakim Schollert Larsen, who will help with downloading and preparing data for analysis and interpretation. Write to Joakila@ruc.dk to schedule an appointment. If you need extra guidance on any particular issue, you will be referred to a relevant researcher.
