Synopsis

This is a four-unit course that contributes towards the Master of Business Research Dissertation. 

The Dissertation comprises the research and writing of a dissertation (maximum of 40,000 words). Students examine a professional area of interest, usually related to their work environment and are assisted by one or more supervisors with appropriate background. Each candidate for the applied research project is required to submit a research proposal to the Head of School and Faculty Research and Higher Degrees Committee for approval and endorsement by the Dean prior to the commencement of research. Most topics are drawn from the candidate's work experience and interest; however it is recognised that the work of some candidates is not necessarily suited for that purpose and the Head of School and Faculty Research and Higher Degrees Committee then considers topics drawn from elsewhere if necessary. The dissertation will be a significant piece of independently conducted and written research. To successfully complete the dissertation, students will be required to select a research topic, develop a proposal, carry out supervised research on the chosen topic using an appropriate research method, and present and defend the results.
