This course aims to introduce research students to a scientific approach to the study of management, marketing and international business issues. The focus is on equipping students with the fundamental knowledge and skills for undertaking both quantitative and qualitative research and to critically evaluate research conducted by others. The course is divided into four interrelated segments: problem formulation/conceptualisation, implementation, analysis, and publication and communication of research findings. Due emphasis will be given to the use of computers in data analysis. At the end of the course, students can expect to have acquired an appreciation of the research process both as a craft and as methodology.
