Learning objectives
  • Describe and identify one or more relevant issues related to the EBUSS areas.
  • Reflect on methods and theory, e.g. the choice of theoretical perspective, tools, methods, data, analysis, delimitations as well as the validity and reliability of results.
  • Perform a disciplined analysis of theory and data, describe connections between research question, analysis or theoretical work and the conclusions or results.
  • Describe the process in the project and provide perspectives for further research.
Course prerequisites
Contact and agreement with a EBUSS supervisor, approved project agreement containing research question/problem description as well as methods intended to be used in the project.
4 weeks' project:
Exam ECTS 7,5

Description of the exam procedure
Every project needs to have a project agreement that includes a project description as well as an EBUSS supervisor.

The project agreement must contain a short description of the project domain and scope, a research question (or several), as well as an overview of the methods deemed relevant for answering the research questions. If the final project departs from the description in the original project agreement, the reason for this must be accounted for in a short section in the project report. 

The project agreement must always be approved by the acting project coordinator who acts on behalf of the study board.
The project must be handed in with the official EBUSS front matter.
Course content and structure
The purpose of project activities on the EBUSS education is to enable the students to work on a self selected problem or domain that they find interesting. The project must fall within the overall aims of the EBUSS education (i.e. it must be in the area of IT and business) and it must entail a reasonable progression from the students' previous course and/or project activities. By exploring potential areas/domains/methods or theories, the project activities are also meant, to some extent, to be preparatory for the masters thesis
Teaching methods
Supervision by EBUSS supervisor
Expected literature

Use the library databases. 700 normal pages of literature relevant to the topic.
