This practical, step-by-step guide shows business students how to successfully conduct a research project, from choosing the topic to presenting the results. The book is divided into sections on preparing and planning the project, undertaking the research, and communicating the results. The authors have applied their many years of experience in supervising student projects to provide examples of actual research problems and to offer practical solutions. Unique to this book is the inclusion of chapters on topics such as supervision, group work and ethics, and both qualitative and quantitative data analysis.

This student-friendly guide will be ideal for supporting undergraduate research projects in business and management, as well as MBA assignments and other graduate classes in applied fields such as public administration and health care administration.

Review:

"The strongest asset of the book is the attention it gives to maximize the student′s learning outcome, a quality that recurs consistently in each chapter. The final outcome is a user-friendly and widely accessible book that not only serves as a guide, but convinces the reader about the benefits of undertaking a research projects as an exercise to develop soft skills that will prove beneficial ′educationally and developmentally′ given the competitive job environment that many students have to face today." (Khadeeja Z. Mohamed Ali Journal of Management 2006-08-21)
