The present paper demonstrates a competence and knowledge type framework for teaching business research (BRM) methods on large group teaching of social science students. The view of BRM is to represent a multi-methodological approach to knowledge. Quantitative and qualitative methods are natural building blocks of students' knowledge competence. The aim is to secure that students have the opportunity to experience mini-abductions through out the BRM course, and that these mini-abductions result in the development of knowledge competence. As students gain knowledge competence from teaching and by learning of the different disciplines in BRM, information chaos of the post cold-war problematique becomes windows of opportunity for business process decision-making. The addressed questions are: What are the building blocks of knowledge competence? How are these capabilities derived from BRM courses? How is student learning in BRM facilitated?
