Management Research Methodology Essay

Individual assignment question

(1) Each student must write and submit a Management Research Methodology Essay. (2) Student can choose ANY research methods used in management e.g. Observation, faceto-face, internet, mystery customer and others.

The methodology essay will follow the usual structure of an essay e.g.: The title page will be followed by the essay which will contain a clear introduction, body and conclusion. Following the conclusion, a reference list will be presented (see Student Manual).

You will be marked on your ability to analyse and synthesise the literature e.g.: the adequacy of application, strengths and weaknesses, whether they provide a strong enough foundation on which to base rigorous research. Therefore, do not write a descriptive essay.

This is a research essay requiring you to search academic journals only – not textbooks or nonacademic internet sources. You should primarily search the academic journals from online library. If you feel it is appropriate, you may use other journals if you consider the journal article to be a relevant and quality source for your assignment.

A minimum of eight (8) journal reference sources will help you write a more complete paper, if all the sources are relevant. It is preferable that your journal sources be no older than 10 years and, definitely, no earlier than 2000.

Note: you are discouraged from including excessive numbers of citations in your essay that do not add critical significance to your discussion, as there is NO reward in the marking process for quantity over quality.
