Required First Year Courses

BUS 87305 Ethnography of Corporate Culture

Credits : 3

This course examines how ethnographic methods may be used to analyze information-based work practices and to design business/corporate systems to be sensitive to those who use them. Corporate culture is a highly distributed, infrastructural and rapidly changing entity that endows organizational action with its deepest significance. Corporate cultures must be studied by ethnographic methods of “thick description”. Grounded in this way, the course aims to help Learners develop the judgment necessary to design, test, and evaluate effective business systems of the future.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Compare Ethnography growth as a research method
  • Explain how to select best qualitative research method for situation analysis
  • Evaluate and prepare ethical matrix and predict outcomes
  • Construct best theory concepts for hypothetical testing and findings
  • Determine most effective domain analysis for ethnographic research
  • Demonstrate focused observation methods for ethnographic conclusions
  • Develop detailed ethnographic maps for taxonomy assessments
  • Examine various cultural variables for inclusions in ethnographic projects
  • Create and recommend specific theories for inclusion development
  • Design an Ethnographic manuscript suitable for journal publication
  • Evaluate course concepts critically and competently through interaction with Learners and Faculty Mentor.
  • Practices ethical behavior in regard to information and information technology
