Assessment task details
During this module, you will complete a dissertation research project (project based research study).  You can either:

Sign up to a specific project task proposed by a supervisor or

Pitch and implement a project that you have conceived and developed to meet the research study assessment requirements

Type A:

The project task outlines detail the rationale for the research and the data that will be analysed. See specific project task outlines for full details of the project.

Type B:

In your pitch you will need to outline the rationale for your research. You will need to clearly identify the management problem and provide full details of the data you intend to analyse. Your project pitch must be reviewed and agreed by your supervisor in the first instance and then approved by the module lead or programme leader. Your pitch must be: relevant to your MBA; propose sufficient data analysis; and needs to be achievable within the module timeframe.

Over the course of the module you will: retrieve the data specified in the project task outline/your pitch and/or design your data collection approach; secure approval; prepare/collect the data; and analyse the data. You will write up your research as a dissertation in the format outlined in the module handbook by following the project based research study template provided.

You are reminded that your choice of dissertation topic should reflect the subject area represented in the programme route you are studying. You should not sign up for a Type A project or pitch a Type B project which requires you to deviate from this rule.
