This course involves online teaching. Check Class Summary for more details. MBA students will receive separate advice for their on-campus classes.

The Evidence-based Management (EBM) course aims at providing students enrolled in programs at RSM with different levels of competencies centered around evidence and that they are expected to develop and maintain throughout their studies and ultimately translate into their working life.  EBM involves the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of the best available evidence about and within business organisations for decision-making. This course is divided into two sequential modules. The first module will equip students with knowledge about EBM and how it strengthens decision-making and practice in business and organisation. In module two, students will learn how to appraise evidence quality before applying it to support decisions and actions. Students will thus be able to not only translate principles from best evidence to management practice and ethical decision-making, but also to reflect on how to use evidence and their position to improve on their learning experience.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Describe Evidence-based practice (EBP) in Management and its basic principles and its core and functional capabilities.
  2. Identify problems that require decision-making based on knowledge of research fundamentals and EBP principles and capabilities (ASK)
  3. Establish the search strategy to acquire the best available evidence relevant to the problem (ACQUIRE)
  4. Ascertain the methodological appropriateness, quality, and trustworthiness of evidence (APPRAISE)
  5. Integrate different types of relevant evidence towards finding solutions to the problem (AGGREGATE)
  6. Generate and implement best solutions to the problem with due consideration of their social and ethical implications (APPLY)
  7. Evaluate feedback obtained on applied solutions for necessary adjustment (ASSESS)
  8. Generate insights and decision-making awareness through self-reflection (ASSESS)
