4 ETCS Doctoral Course on “Project management tools for multidisciplinary research: Design and article writing processes from conception to publication” organized by the Finnish Doctoral Program in Business Studies (KATAJA). The course was held 8-11 May 2012, at the Aalto University School of Economics, Finland. Faculty: Constance Kampf, Aarhus School of Business and Social Sciences Kirk St. Amant, East Carolina University Anne Kankaanranta, Aalto University School of Economics The lectures and discussions focused on the following themes based on literature the student had to read before the start of the course: Conceptual overview of multidisciplinary research, Project management tools for research conception, planning, implementation and publishing. In addition to lecture participation, the course included different activities to enhance reflection on participants’ research projects: Participants (1) submitted an article draft and information on their preferred publishing venue before the course, (2) gave a presentation on the reflections on the key learnings (from the required readings and previous day’s class) related to the their research project every day, and (3) submitted a revised final paper together with letter that includes an analysis of revisions and the logic behind each change after the course. The course was assessed on a combination of the final paper, the accompanying letter, and the set of presentations graded by the faculty. When monitoring and grading students’ work and progression through the course, the faculty used the following five grades: 5=excellent, 4=very good, 3=good, 2=satisfactory, and 1=sufficient (0=fail).
