Program description

Academic Writing-Skills: From PhD Paper to Publication for Business School Students

The goal of this course is to help Business School students improve their academic writing skills. This course will provide you with the information and tools you need to brush up on your academic writing skills. This should help you improve one of your PhD papers which you can then publish in a top journal. This course will take place over 5 days, during which time you will be working on one of your PhD papers. We will have 2-hour long interactive classes in the morning via Zoom and 3-hour practical writing sessions in the afternoon. In the classes, you will work on your own paper, give feedback to your peers, and have the opportunity to receive feedback from the teachers.

During the practical writing sessions in the afternoon, you will be working on the respective sections of your own paper that we cover in the morning. You will also give feedback to your peers and receive feedback in turn, which will help you get more from the process. There will be several opportunities to receive direct feedback from the teachers, too. By the end of the week, you will have revised your paper's introduction, theory, and methods sections.
