Management Research Project

A piece of primary research is the capstone of your MSc experience. It allows you to build on your foundational degree should you wish to: students in recent years have undertaken specialist projects at the intersection of cinema and marketing management, fashion and supply chain, and engineering and strategy.

Importantly, you are assigned an experienced member or faculty who will personally mentor you and help you tailor and complete your research: allowing you to showcase what you have learnt in management throughout the year and planning how you can leverage the project to segue into the next stage of your career. The goal is to reflect on the career that you want to have, and then to craft a piece of research that interests you.
