Computational Approaches to the Study of Organizations
HT 2021, Helfart, Norrköping
This course engages with research on organizations, with a specific focus on quantitative methods and computational models. Theories and empirical research in the study of organizations are discussed and compared, including organizational demography, internal labour markets, organizational decision making, and organizational ecology. Research papers on organizations are read and assessed, theoretical models of organizations are formulated, and empirical predictions from theoretical models are derived. Special attention will be paid to the use of complex statistical and computational methods in organization research.
