International Summer School in Research Methods and Data Science (ACISS)
The International Summer School in Research Methods and Data Science (ACISS) has been held annually in the summer months since 2015 and offers various one-week intensive courses on qualitative and quantitative research methods. Post-doctoral students, doctoral students, and advanced master's students from all specialization areas can participate. External participants are also welcome.
The courses are taught in English by renowned lecturers from RWTH as well as other internationally renowned universities and are highly interactive: they include discussions, presentations by the participants and, depending on the course, units in the computer lab.

Welcome to the 8th Aachen International Summer School in Research Methods and Data Science (ACISS)!
The School of Business and Economics is glad to announce its eighth research-oriented summer school for Post-Docs, PhDs, and advanced Master's students from all Areas of Specialization.
Six intensive, one-week courses will be offered during the period from August to September 2022. All courses will be highly interactive, method-, and application-oriented. They will be delivered by outstanding instructors from RWTH Aachen University and other prestigious international universities. These courses have been designed to equip you with insights into state-of-the-art research methods and supporting software packages. You will also have the opportunity to apply these insights in order to solve hands-on research problems and to discuss your findings with your peers. What better way to prepare for your empirical Master's thesis, PhD project, or journal publication?
Your instructors will also spend time describing their own academic career trajectory, extracting lessons learned, and discussing the particularities of academic careers in their own respective countries.
