Research Project (International Business) (N1547)

30 credits, Level 6

Autumn and spring teaching

In this module, you undertake an independent research project, so you can develop your research skills. 

You can either write a dissertation in the form of a literature-based analysis of a research problem, or a dissertation in which some primary empirical data is collected and synthesised.

In both cases, the dissertation is expected to address clear research questions.
