This paper explores the qualitative research course for undergraduate psychology students at IE University (Instituto de Empresa) through an analysis of students’ perceptions and experiences as gathered through an open-ended questionnaire. This course introduces and trains students in the methodology, practice, and use of the computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software ATLAS.ti within qualitative research. Students studied qualitative methodology, learned to use ATLAS.ti, and applied their knowledge in a case study research project on the leadership of an international company. This is a recently implemented subject that was included as a full-time course due to students' growing demand for training and experience with qualitative research. Overall perceptions of the course are positive, despite the effort demanded by the course, and students generally valued the learning and practical experience they gained. The students recognized this course as an important complement to their predominantly quantitative curriculum. As a result, this paper suggests that qualitative research (its methodology and the use of software tools) can and should be taught to undergraduate students in order to provide a more rounded education in research methods and methodologies.
