MAXQDA, developed by VERBI, is a tool for qualitative data and text analysis. This software can be used for qualitative coding, categorizing, and analyzing, e.g. of interview transcripts or documented focus groups. Furthermore, mixed method as well as quantitative data can be analyzed with MAXQDA.

At the Institute of Business Logistics and General Management, MAXQDA is mainly used by students and researchers for qualitative content analyses, e.g. in student’s reports and theses as well as in dissertations.
