    The MRes programme provides relevant skills and knowledge for those students who wish to develop a solid understanding of research methods and philosophies, and is an excellent foundation for those wishing to pursue a PhD.

    In addition, the MRes is interdisciplinary in nature and provides a self-contained opportunity for valuable training and research for students who may not wish to proceed to a higher research degree, but who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills that are increasingly demanded in the labour market.

    -independently research, synthesise and review current literature in business and management;
    -understand the principles of research design and how to devise research questions in business and management;
    -employ a wide range of methods of data gathering and analysis appropriate to different research contexts;
    -critically appraise various theoretical and methodological approaches in business and management;
    -understand the wide range of epistemological perspectives in business and management for the conduct of different types of research;
    -possess a range of generic skills that they can transfer into future academic or non-academic contexts.
