The learning outcomes will be assessed by a portfolio (6000 words) -100%Each group of students will be required to select a topic for research relevant to their professional/ business interests and needs.
Each group will be expected to formulate a relevant specific research question.
They will need to identify, clearly describe and justify themethods they will use to answer the research question and then
conduct a small scale research.
This will then be presented in the form of a portfolio of not more than 5000 words, using appropriate reporting conventions and referencing. The coursework portfolio hastwo parts.
The first part is the group work in the form of a research project (5000 words), while thesecond part is an individual reflective log (1000 words) produced by each member of the group.
Notes we do not have specific topic so please could you suggest one topic with details before the writer start to write. And I directly replied you after you provided it to start on the work.

Business Research Method must be structure similar to this structure:
Very concern summary.
2- Introduction (brief)
– Introduction topic
– Research question/ aims
3- Literature review:
– Seminal works
– Gaps in research
4- Methodology:(would like surveys only)
– Philosophy Ontology/ Epistemology
– Method of data collection
– Method of data analysis
5- Data presentation/ analysis:
– What you’ve got
– What you’ve done with it
(Need to be linked back to the literature)
– making sense of data
7- Conclusion(Need to be linked back to the literature) /Limitations(Need to be linked back to the literature)/Implication for future research(Need to be linked back to the literature) /Recommendation.
- All assertions must be supported by literature.
- Literature between 15 to 20.
- Surveys between 15 to 20.
