The majority of students on the Masters programmes in the Business School will be doing research within an organisation, often their own place of work. Where an organisation is involved it is vital that the organisation approves of the research that is being conducted. The reasons for this are two-fold. Firstly, it is important for you to receive the co-operation of key individuals in the organisation as well as ensuring that you will be given access to data. Secondly, it is also important that the University maintains a mutually respected relationship with supporting organisations.
