Doctoral Course on Simulation for Business Research

Doctoral Course on Simulation Modeling for Business Research

From October 7 to 10, the German VHB (German Academic Association for Business Research) is offering a ProDok-Workshop for doctoral students on “Simulation Modelling for Business Research”. The course will be taught by Catherine Cleophas (Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel). Please find more information here:

Business research increasingly considers wicked problems and complex dynamic systems. Analytical models of such problems and systems quickly become untraceable and unsolvable. Given increasing computational power, simulation models provide an alternative tool. They can fuel studies tracing the long-term evolution of systems and comparing the outcomes of alternative scenarios. However, successfully applying simulation modelling for business research requires expertise on applicable simulation paradigms, approaches to model validation and the analysis of stochastic results.

Interested potential participants can sign up until September 8, 2019, via the electronic sign-up system found here: https://vhbonline.org/en/events/the-phd-program/registration-participation-payment/or via email to prodok@vhbonline.org. Note that there is a participation fee as stated on the linked website.
