|Miscellanea||Upon the successful completion of this module, students have a basic understanding of empirical research in information systems. Topics will be chosen and assigned to students to familiarize them with the information systems research discipline. These topics include IT innovation, IT adoption and continuance, digital strategy, business models, pricing, cloud computing, information privacy, electronic healthcare and others. Students learn how to conduct, write and present a systematic and academic literature review on their individually assigned topic. By doing so, students gain a fundamental understanding of the principles of empirical academic work and obtain the ability to systematically and independently address a research topic. Accordingly, the knowledge and methodological skills acquired in this seminar are a necessary foundation to write a master thesis at the chair. Besides fostering analytical thinking, this seminar will also facilitate the improvement of English skills, as the entire seminar is held in English. Thus, after the successful completion of this module, students will have improved their writing, presentation and discussion skills in English.|
