Our MRes in Management

The aim of the MRes programme is to provide foundation training in research skills to enter a Management Doctoral programme. The MRes programme is also suitable for those who may wish to obtain a Management research degree, but do not wish to commit to a longer period of study. The programme equips the student with the conceptual, methodological, practical, and ethical skills necessary for careers in management studies research, assessed by formative and summative assessments as defined by the General Principles of the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education. It also provides the student with advanced knowledge of contemporary debates in management research philosophy and methodology, by engaging them in interdisciplinary debates and workshops, and with the necessary skills to apply concepts and techniques, a critical awareness of the limits of such techniques, and the interactions between the student's own research specialism and the broader field of management studies.
