This course is compulsory on the MSc in Management and Strategy. This course is not available as an outside option.
The dissertation consists of a research project within the subject of management. Students work on this project individually under the guidance of a supervisor. The dissertation should make a contribution towards understanding a topic or question related to management based on original analysis and empirical evidence.
There will be two introductory meetings, the first will set out the requirements for the dissertation, the process, caution of plagiarism, etc. The second meeting will allow students to approach staff with preliminary ideas, mainly with a view to set up subsequent one-to-one meetings.
Students will receive feedback on a preliminary proposal (to be submitted by the end of Michaelmas Term) and will be allocated a dissertation supervisor, under whose guidance they will complete a detailed project proposal by the end of Lent Term. Students work on their dissertation over the summer, with supervision available until the end of the Summer Term.
