Hintergrund Research into business and management issues generates information for policy formulation, strategy development and decision-making.
Building on foundational academic writing skills and knowledge of research methodology students have acquired at Level 2, the Business Dissertation gives students the opportunity to investigate in depth a pathway-related topic of special interest to them. It is an independently conceived and managed piece of work that critically analyses and synthesises theoretical and empirical material. The Business Dissertation identifies and combines academic knowledge and skills to produce a work of practical relevance, with appropriate academic depth and rigour. Students are assigned a supervisor who provides advice and supports students in managing the dissertation process.
The Dissertation also provides valuable experience in preparing students for comparable work in employment, postgraduate courses and research degrees or independent project work or consultancy. Finally, it gives an opportunity for students to develop expertise on a particular subject of their choice.
