Students conduct an original research project on a significant issue in management. The project can be purely theoretical; eg: a literature review leading to development of a new model and/or propositions for future research; an empirical examination such as a test of hypotheses based on primary survey data and/or interviews; a test of hypotheses based on secondary data sources, exploratory or explanatory case study work, experimental or simulation work, or the development of a methodology contributing to the solution of a significant organisational problem.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  • identify a research project on a significant issue in the field management
  • identify and critically evaluate relevant literature on the research topic
  • identify and critically evaluate an appropriate methodology for the research project.
