BM7043-15 Research Methods

Assessment Brief – Trimester Two 2021-2022

MA BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT

This module is assessed by a research/project proposal (100%) – 3,500 words

(excluding abstract, reference list and appendices)

DUE DATE: FRIDAY 20TH MAY 2022    

Assessment Details:

All Masters level students are required to take a 60 credit module where they undertake a major project (equiv. 14,000-20,000 words). The project offers you the opportunity to demonstrate the knowledge and skills you have gained across your taught modules in an extended project that justifies the ‘Masters’ level award.

The assessment for this module (BM7043-15 Research Methods) is an initial proposal for that 60 credit project.

Students on the MA Business and Management choose one of two different types of 60 credit project:

  • Dissertation
    • The dissertation involves choosing an area of research interest related to the wider themes covered on your course. A dissertation of this type includes a review of current literature related to the topic and can also incorporate a field study and/or the collection, analysis and evaluation of original data. You will analyse the findings from your research to draw conclusions (and if appropriate make recommendations) within the wider context of theories, models and/or frameworks appropriate to your course.
  • Consultancy Project
    • The consultancy project connects your chosen research area to a real-world problem or opportunity for an organisation to which you have requisite access. In consultation with this organisation, you will investigate the problem/opportunity within the context of appropriate business and management theories, models and/or frameworks. You will analyse the data you collect during your investigation, and compile a compact and informative package of findings and recommendations for your organisation. You will also evaluate your consultancy project, critically reflecting on the consultancy process and to what extent your academic skills and your practitioner skills have been enhanced as a result of undertaking your project.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are on a pathway on the MA Business and Management (ie. Accounting, Entrepreneurship, International Business or Marketing), your dissertation/consultancy project must relate to that pathway area. If you are on the general MA Business and Management, or the MA Business and Management with Integrated Placement, then your project can be in any area of business and management covered in the taught modules on your course.

For your BM7043 Research Methods assessment you choose one of the two project types for your proposal based on what you think your intended trimester three 60 credit module project might be at this stage:

You should select your proposal type in discussion with the Module Leader for your 60 credit module, and with your allocated supervisor.

The following generic guidance should be followed for all proposals:

  1. Clear font (eg. Arial or Calibri) with accessible size (ie. font size 11 or 12)
    1. All references must be in Harvard citation format, including both in-text referencing and the end paper reference list.
    1. Reference list is left-justified with double spacing between references.

Type 1. Dissertation Proposal

The dissertation proposal outlines an academic research project aimed at expanding knowledge and understanding of your chosen topic.

Your proposal should set out a clear and coherent plan for your research project. It clarifies your ideas and helps you organise them, and shows us that you have a good knowledge of the existing work in your wider topic area. It enables your supervising tutor to consider your research ideas and give you feedback and guidance on how to proceed with your final project to make sure your research project is viable, and that it will meet the University’s Ethical Approval Policy.

Your proposal should include:

  • Title
    • Proposed title of your research project

Type 2. Consultancy Proposal

The consultancy proposal outlines a professional management consultancy project aimed at addressing a problem or seizing an opportunity raised by your chosen ‘client’.

Your written proposal should set out a clear and coherent plan for your research project.
