MGT9601 - MGT9608 have been designed for the Doctor of Business Administration program. As noted in the synopsis, the course titles and numbers assist a candidate to track their progress through their research and dissertation completion process. Candidates should maintain regular contact with their supervisors and consult with the Faculty of Business and Law and Office of Research and Higher Degrees (ORHD) to ensure that they are appropriately enrolled in the courses. MGT9608 is the final course in the dissertation process.
The final course in the eight-unit dissertation will normally focus on re-writing, corrections and revisions of all the chapters in the dissertation. Supervisors and candidate will consult on an ongoing basis during this period. Supervisors can recommend the submission of the dissertation for external examination through the Faculty of Business and Law Research Office and Office of Research and Higher Degrees (ORHD). Examiners may require revisions, and a moderator will verify if the student addressed the examiners' requirements. The final grade for this course will depend on the three external examiners' assessment of the dissertation.
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- demonstrate competence in editing/correcting a complete dissertation.
