The Research Project module is a core module for the postgraduate modular finance scheme. This module is based on the BA7032 Financial Modelling and Research Methods module that provides you with an understanding of research methodology and the research methods and skills that you will need to complete your research project successfully. To help you do this you will be allocated an individual supervisor who will provide guidance and encouragement. During this module you will draw on the knowledge and skills that you have gained during the earlier taught modules, but you will also acquire new skills and knowledge that will enhance your profile as a critical, independent, and creative thinker - just the sort of high level skills that modern employers are looking for. Whilst this is a demanding module, it is also a module that will give you an immense amount of satisfaction, because the research project and dissertation is your own, and what gaining a master's degree is all about.
