Course summary

Course description

The Master of Research in Management is awarded in recognition of the successful completion of an approved programme of training and research. Students will pursue a programme of training and research which combines advanced study, research methodology and a substantial research project, or series of research projects.

It is a one year Master's degree which is designed to give students the opportunity to both develop their knowledge of specialist areas of business and management and develop the research skills essential for doctoral research. Many students who complete an MRes go on to apply to study a PhD.

Aims

The programme aims to:

  • provide students with a rigorous training in research methods, including epistemological and theoretical issues as well as quantitative and qualitative methods, appropriate for their doctoral studies;
  • give students the flexibility to chose from a range of course options in the area of management research within a structured programme of courses;
  • offer a range of qualitative and quantitative methods course units so that students could chose the level and specialism that is appropriate to their background and current research training needs;
  • provide systematic and critical knowledge of one specific subject area of management research (such as accounting or marketing) so they appreciate current debates and issues;
  • introduce students to different paradigms to management research/studies thus equipping them with the general background to become professional researchers in management;
  • produce students who have the knowledge and skills to appreciate the growing importance of interdisciplinary research in management;
  • foster students' skills in analysis, argument, independent thinking, and effective oral and written self-expression and presentation skills;
  • build transferable employment related skills, so that students can become life-long learners able to apply their knowledge and skills in variety of contexts;
  • encourage initiative, independent learning and commitment to scholarship; and
  • develop core skills IT in computer literacy, numeracy, and use of databases.

Coursework and assessment

Students are assessed on their selected course units throughout the year. The method of assessment varies depending on the course unit requirements.

Career opportunities

The MRes programme can be awarded in its own right, but is designed to lead onto future PhD study.
