This specialist research programme is ideal for anyone wishing to acquire a rigorous foundation in management research. We will provide you with substantive training in a range of research techniques and methods used in the social sciences, and an understanding of their theoretical and philosophical underpinnings.

You will gain an essential foundation for research in management with this programme, and learn how to analyse and understand management research, as well as use research techniques from the social sciences to assess management problems and contribute to research debates. You will also develop your managerial knowledge through specialist management options.
