  • This course aims to provide doctoral canidates at the School of Management with a practicalintroduction to conducting field experiments, with a particular focus on field experiments in economics. Rather than focusing on the (econometric) theory of experiments, we will provide students with hands-on advice on how to solve concrete challenges related to planning, conducting, analyzing, and presenting the results of experimental field studies.

     

    Syllabus: Field Experiments: Start to Finish

     

    Registration: Please send an email to Prof. Philipp Lergetporer (philipp.lergetporer@tum.de) to register for this course.

     

    Lecturer: Prof. Philipp Lergetporer, PhD

     

    Course dates: Each day (07.10.2024 - 11.10.2024), the lecture starts at 9 am and ends at 4 pm. There will be a lunch break and coffee breaks.

     

    Location: The course will mainly take place at TUM Campus Heilbronn.

Summer term 2024

  • Participants will be assessed based on their seminar presentation (60%), homework assignments (20%), and oral contributions to the course (20%).

    • Seminar presentations will be held by groups of two. Each group will present one method of addressing the problem of causal inference (e.g., RDD). The presentation of 120 min to 150 min shall introduce and explain the respective method as well as applications. Presenters will suggest an article in which this method is applied. The group will bring a dataset with which participants will apply the respective method during the course. The lecturer will meet with each group beforehand to aid in the preparation.
    • Homework assignment. For some of the methods that we discuss in the course participants will do a homework assignment that consists of applying the method to a dataset, presenting the results, and providing an interpretation (in writing).
    • Oral contributions. It is expected that participants prepare the readings for each session and are able to reflect on them. In addition, they shall actively take part in the discussion of the seminar presentations.

    The course is pass/fail, not graded. In order to pass the course, participants must take part in all classes. In case of excused absence due to illness they need to hand in a written assignment about the content of the class they have missed.

  • This course is for researchers on the doctoral or post-doctoral levels who are beginners in economic laboratory experiments. It will enable you to

    • decide whether a laboratory experiment is appropriate to address some research question;
    • find research questions in your area of interest that a laboratory experiment can address;
    • develop an experimental design to address such a research question.

    In addition, the course will offer you hands-on training on how to bring experiments to the laboratory. It will cover common practical issues, such as which software to use, how to recruit participants, or how to conduct an experiment.

    The course will be most beneficial for you if you plan to run your own experiment soon. It will be particularly helpful for you if you consider using experimenTUM, TUM’s laboratory for experimental research in economics.

  • This course will build upon the earlier course of “Theoretical Foundations in Strategy.” In this class, we will go deeper into the theories we covered and give particular attention to empirical design issues and the development and testing of hypotheses. We will begin by examining the implications of firm heterogeneity for empirical research as well as the implications of “fit” (e.g., between organizations and their environments, between organizational forms and attributes of transactions, etc.) for empirical testing. We will also focus on firm survival and exit, and in later sessions cover modeling choices suitable for testing the theories we have covered in the first course. As part of our sessions, we will consider some award-winning strategy dissertations so you can identify what makes for a good dissertation. We will also have a workshop on developing your own research ideas based on what we are learning in the course.

  • This course is designed to help (in particular) junior scholars in the field of management gain exposure and experience with techniques on the written communication of academic work, specifically, how to write interesting and important introductions. The course requires reading and the discussion of readings, but it is fundamentally a “learning-by-doing” course. I hope to have you undergo an iterative process where you a) communicate your research, b) receive feedback, c) revise your communication, and then cycle through this process again in your own journey. The goal of this course is to start you on the path of being a great communicator of your research and increase the odds of publishing in a top journal. Here, top journal implies primarily the “Top 6” (AMJ, AMR, ASQ, ManSci, OrgSci, SMJ), the leading journals in other disciplines (e.g., AJS, ASR, MISQ, Nature, Science…), and also, though to a lesser degree, top field journals that are often part of the “FT 50” – a list of 50 strong management journals listed by the Financial Times. The central question for publishing in these top journals is, usually, how can I make a “theoretical contribution?” Therefore, this course aims to help you clarify your core ideas and craft the introduction so that you articulate the contribution.

  • We will begin with the foundational issues in strategy and see how the field made substantial progress by relaxing and addressing head-on a number of restrictive assumptions in mainstream economics about information, decision-making, and behavior in organizations. We will start with the early progress made by using the theories and approaches of industrial organizational economics, in addition to a number of very important (and controversial) insights that strategic management provided. We will cover a family of theories that make up so-called “organizational economics” that address key questions related to the organizational and geographic scope of the firm, and we will cover a series of competence-based, evolutionary, and learning perspectives on competitive advantage and firm dynamics. Finally, some attention will also be given to theories that are newer and have been used less often in different streams of strategy research but hold considerable promise, including information economics and real options theory. By design and necessity, breadth will be prioritized over depth, but by the end of the course you will have familiarity with a considerable body of theoretical material that has provided the bedrock for strategic management research over the past few decades. Equally important to you, all of the theories we will cover are topical and provide the basis for scholars’ research programs today.
