Interested in developing your research skills? Thinking about becoming a management consultant? Contemplating a PhD? The MRes Management is ideal for anyone wishing to undertake research into management and its related disciplines. If you want to try yourself as a researcher with a view of an academic career, or to improve your employability in the public sector or industry by demonstrating research skills, consider the MRes Management programme.
The programme will provide you with substantial training in a range of research techniques and methods used in the social sciences, and an appreciation of their theoretical and philosophical underpinnings. You will also develop your critical thinking skills through specialist management and organisation studies options. The research-based dissertation will enable you to develop a critical academic argument on your chosen topic, with the support of a supervisor. By pursuing this programme, you will learn how to implement research techniques to critically evaluate management problems and research debates. When you have completed the programme, you will have acquired the abilities to organise a research project, manage self-driven enquiry and write up a piece of research in the format of a dissertation.
This programme forms part of the ESRC South West Doctoral Training Centre – a hub of world-class social sciences research.
During the programme you will study modules (including the dissertation) totalling 180 credits.
