The purpose with this course is to provide insight into the multifaceted discipline of business studies in the Swedish context. Meeting with scholars from the range of subject areas within the discipline, the PhD-students attending the course will become acquainted with contemporary research taking place in the discipline. In focus will be topical and on-going research projects that offer insights into a broad variety of theories, methods, and collaborations (cross-disciplinary as well as international). The course offers the PhD-students to develop a comprehensive and broad understanding of the different subject areas of business studies and how they relate to one another, as well as provides opportunities to engage in building scholarly networks that span across Sweden, universities, subject areas and projects.

The course is given through a combination of IRL-meetings and virtual meetings. Before each meeting, the participants are expected to read and prepare for discussion. The course is examined by the writing of a final paper. The course will take place during the spring term of 2022, starting in February and ending in May (in total five meetings).
