  • Course description
    The MSc in Management Research is a structured research degree that allows you to undertake a substantive piece of research under the supervision of an experienced researcher. It will appeal to those who are seeking the challenge and satisfaction of undertaking their own research project into an area of management that particularly interests them, but who are not necessarily ready to take on the full commitment of a PhD.

    Training to become a researcher

    An important component of the MSc in Management Research is the Research Methods Course. This is undertaken alongside other research students from both the MSc and PhD programmes. The course will equip you with the necessary methodological and philosophical skills and knowledge to develop your competence as a researcher and to successfully complete your research degree.

    Content of research methods course

        * Basic skills within the Management Research Process
        * The Philosophy of Management Research
        * Qualitative and Quantitative Research Design and Analysis
        * Communication and Advanced Research Skills
        * One postgraduate taught module.

    Those performing well on the MSc in Management Research have the option of transferring to the PhD programme on a part-time or full-time basis.

    Assessment

    Each of the Research Methods Course modules is assessed through an assignment that requires you to link the concepts from that module to your own research project. The MSc is obtained through successful submission of a dissertation and viva based on your research project and completion of the Research Methods Course.

    Distance Learning Option:

    The Research Methods Course consists of four modules, two of which are done via our ‘virtual learning environment’ and two are taken over a block five day residential period plus one postgraduate taught module. Our ‘Distance Learning’ Director is on hand to help with our ‘on line’ discussions in our research degree community of both staff and students. The MSc is obtained through successful submission of a dissertation and viva based on your research project and completion of the distance learning Research Methods Course.
