The hardest part of any undergraduate dissertation is choosing a suitable topic that is interesting enough
for you to spend an academic year reading, researching, and writing about as well as being achievable in
terms of finding enough primary research material and participants to use and /or gain access to. Your
chosen topic should be drawn from a topic within your degree area, e.g. Marketing, Accounting and
Finance, Business Management, HR, etc. This assignment is designed to assist you with this process so
that you can:
Identify a suitable range of topics from which to choose.
Construct a coherent argument for the research topic.
Evaluate a range of primary research options from which to choose and justify the most appropriate
research methods identified for the completion of the dissertation.
Demonstrate your independent learning skills and professional graduate competencies.
