Doctoral research seminar focusing on comparative international research on work and human resource systems.  It draws on theories and empirical research across several disciplines to examine the intersection between institutions and organizations.  What is the relative importance of markets, technology, management strategies, and the institutional environment in shaping work and employment systems?  It considers how and why firms adopt alternative approaches to work and how variation in these choices shapes outcomes of interest to firms, employees, and other key stakeholder groups.  The seminar is designed to help students formulate theoretically driven research questions of critical importance to the field and develop appropriate qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.
