Topics of the seminar in SS23

In the summer term 2023, the undergraduate seminar at the Junior Professorship of Entrepreneurship and Digitalization will address the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Entrepreneurial Intention. In particular, your assignment is to develop a model as well as a research question, which you will subsequently analyze empirically. For this purpose, we provide you with an already existing data set. One half of the course will examine the data using classical regression analysis, the other half will examine the data set using fsQCA in conjunction with Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA).

If you have your own idea for a research paper in the topic area of the seminar, please feel free to contact us.
