aspects of research will be emphasized. The first part of the class will focus on the research process and design. In this section students will learn how to formulate a research problem, determine a research design, evaluate methods for data collection, and develop instruments for data collection. The second part of the class will focus on how to analyze the data using SPSS, and how to recommend the appropriate action to management.
