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.
