This book focuses on the effective design and management of a postgraduate research project, from the inception and commencement of a relationship with supervisors through to the submission and examination of the dissertation, and can help ensure the timely and successful completion of postgraduate dissertation study. As the book addresses the methodological choices available to students and the issues that can arise during the process, it will be particularly valuable to all research students—and to business research students in particular. The pedagogical approach is one of being informative, and the text is written in a conversational style loaded with concrete examples—some from actual theses and dissertations. Contents include: * Why am I doing this and what should I expect? * How should I manage the relationship with my supervisor? * How do I maintain a good work/life balance? * How do I identify/frame my research problem and questions? * How do I handle academic integrity issues? * How should I approach data analysis and display results? * And many more practical questions and answers.
