MBA students are able to choose to undertake a Dissertation that relates to theory and policy issues. The purpose of this is to enable the student to develop and demonstrate their capacity to carry out a substantial piece of independent academic work on a selected topic. Students will be assessed on their capacity to define a topic, to articulate a coherent scheme for examining the topic, to gather necessary information and to analyse and present this information in a way that satisfactorily assesses the topic that they have set themselves. Supervisor is assigned to the student for the duration of the dissertation. Seminar/Defence dates are communicated to registered students.
