BATON ROUGE – Thomas Greckhamer, a professor in the Rucks Department of Management in Louisiana State University’s E. J. Ourso College of Business, was invited to speak at universities in Canada and Australia this spring.

In March, Greckhamer visited Western University’s Ivey Business School in London, Ontario. His presentation, “Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) Methodology for Management Research,” was attended by faculty and PhD students. He was also asked to serve as an external examiner during a PhD dissertation defense. Greckhamer rounded out his visit with meetings and research discussions with faculty and PhD students. 
Greckhamer recently returned from a visit to Adelaide, Australia. He was invited by the University of South Australia and the Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) as an expert on QCA research methodology. During the visit, Greckhamer taught a two-day research methods seminar to faculty and PhD students and held discussions on research topics. He also served as a panelist for “Ask the Research Methods Experts,” a forum held by the University of South Australia’s School of Management.  
“I was honored to represent LSU at the Ivey Business School and the University of South Australia,” said Greckhamer. “I also enjoyed meeting with and presenting my work to communities of open-minded scholars. Visits like these further academic pursuits through an open exchange of ideas and challenging discussions.”
