RESD 720 Multivariate Research Methods Yair Levy - AM

This advanced multivariate research methods course builds on the content learned in the doctoral course RESD-705, Introduction to Research Methodology for Information Systems. This data-driven doctoral course will provide the skills needed to perform advanced multivariate data analysis by incorporating currently used techniques. Topics covered will include assumptions and limitations, multivariate data collection, pre-analysis data screening, factorial and multivariate analysis of variance and covariance, linear and non-linear multiple regressions, path analysis, exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and structural equation models (SEM). Students will be provided with data-sets for data analyses of the multivariate methods discussed in course along with scholarly articles that make use of the multivariate methods discussed. Students will be introduced to the use of SPSS, PLS, and other advanced multivariate tools.
