The aim of this module is to provide students with an understanding of issues involved in the design of research projects within a finance and management discipline. This module aims to use recent seminal published work in selected areas of finance and management to examine issues of research design and methodology and, in doing so, aims to help students develop a critical perspective on research development and its contribution to the practice of finance and management. In particular, the module will cover areas such as identifying research areas, writing a literature review, identifying appropriate research techniques as well as the more technical aspects of quantitative research.
