The business project for Masters programmes at the Royal Docks School of Business and Law, requires students to conduct applied research under the supervision of an academic member of staff. It is a 6000-word project which accounts for 30 credits of your programme of study.
The expectation is that you will undertake a live applied business project which is appropriate to your vocational area. This could include primary research into a business problem, a work-based project, business simulation, Bloomberg project, project management report, case study or other empirical research. For some course’s students will have to select a particular activity based on programme or professional body accreditation requirements (please see below for details).
The project takes one semester to complete and submission takes place in December (Term 1), April (Term 2) and August (Term 3). Please note that postgraduate projects are not subject to the usual “resit coursework” deadline, and students who must resit must do so at the next available opportunity. Please confirm with your supervisor as to when you should re-sit.
College Research Ethics Board (CREB)
Ethics: Students undertaking primary research will be required to submit an ethical research application. Guidance on the ethical research process may be found on Business Research Ethics – Postgraduate 2019-20
You should seek guidance from your supervisor in completing the ethical application and submit your application when complete on the correct Turnitin link on the PG Ethics MOODLE, found at Business Research Ethics – Postgraduate 2019-20. Failure to complete an ethical application for primary research will lead to a mark of 0 awarded for any work submitted.
