To support you in being able to conduct this work there is a module called Researching Contemporary Business Issues. This module provides you with the opportunity to engage with current academic and practitioner business debate and encourages you to explore a range of relevant business topics. The module has been designed in such a way that it promotes a multi-disciplinary approach, for example, you will receive input from a variety of disciplines (business and non-business) thus allowing you to see business issues from a variety of perspectives.
