The course introduces the students to a broad range of orthodox approaches in business and management research practice, and then blends these with emerging techniques. The result is a course that attends to the dynamic range of research practice in the fields; as the world moves, so do the demands being placed on business and management researchers. Given the range of ideas and techniques students will be exposed to, the programme will be both challenging and rewarding in terms of student experience.
