The Masters Dissertation option provides the opportunity to conceive, design and satisfactorily implement a substantial research project within the broad subject area of international business and HRM. The Applied Research Project option enables students to apply the theoretical concepts encountered on the MSc International Business with HRM programme and the practical experience gained from the Advanced Practice stage to a contemporary management issue.
