The assessment for the Approaches to Business Research module requires you to
prepare a Research Proposal. This proposal will normally form the basis of the
research which you undertake for the dissertation module of the BA (Hons)
Business at level 6. This means that your Research Proposal should focus on the
application of business and management principles in an organisational context. In
other words, the proposal must focus on an important business and management
issue in your organisation, or another organisation. You will probably find it easiest
to base your research in your own organisation but sometimes this is not possible,
perhaps because you are currently not employed or your organisation will not let you
conduct research in the organisation. In these sort of circumstances you need to find
an organisation that will allow you to carry out research in it.
The business and management topic which you choose must be realistic and
capable of being undertaken within a reasonable timeframe.
