Researching and Writing a Dissertation - for business students 2nd edition
By Colin Fisher

An engaging and pragmatic introduction to researching and writing a dissertation for masters level Business students.

A dissertation is a substantial part of a master's qualification and students are often daunted by the prospect of embarking on such a sustained piece of academic work. This book takes an extremely practical, skills-based, approach and covers both the research methods themselves and the process of choosing, planning, researching and writing the dissertation.

Key features of this book:

  • Assessment criteria are explained so that your work is focused around the relevant academic objectives.
  • Step-by-step coverage, illustrated by examples of what to do and what not to do.
  • Understanding that project work is often not sequential, the author advises on how to juggle several stages at once.
  • Broader skill-sets, such as arguing and writing are developed.

With increased coverage of research ethics, research software and critical theories this new edition is more comprehensive and up-to-date. Recognising areas where students can struggle there is also more on using the internet for research, and on assessing the 'critical weight' of articles and different types of validity.

Colin Fisher is Professor of Managerial Ethics and Values at Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University and has helped hundreds of students through their master’s projects. He and Alan Lovell have recently published a second edition of Business Ethics & Values with Pearson Education.
