Business Research Methodology and Data Collection
|Unit||BUS605 Business Research Methodology and Data Collection|
Pre-requisites: Business Research Methods
This unit addresses methodological and data collection issues related to the research proposal developed in the unit Business Research Proposal and Literature Review. In particular, it concentrates on the details of how the proposed research is to be undertaken. Students will develop the workflow of the proposed research, frame research questions, identify objectives and hypotheses, which techniques and tools will be used for data collection, and how data will be interpreted, analysed and presented.
The first part of the unit will concentrate on finalising methodological issues. As soon as the student and his or her supervision committee agree that the research methodology has been finalised, and all relevant institutional and ethics clearances have been approved, the student will commence data collection.
