This webinar will focus on an introduction to simulations while conducting international business research.  Facilitated by the AIB’s Research Methods Shared Interest Group (RM-SIG), this webinar will include an overview of simulations.

Organizational scholars have used simulations to better understand the properties of statistical techniques. In addition to describing the benefits of simulations, this webinar will also include an example of a simulation using Stata. Finally, this webinar will offer potential applications to IB research.
