Course Details

This course is taught within Coventry Business School, and benefiting from our over 50 years of teaching business degrees, this course is aimed at professional managers, with at least two years of experience, who have prior learning up to PGDip level in a subject which contains relevant management content. Typically, this prior learning will have been delivered by professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, the Chartered Institute of Marketing or the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

You will then work, in collaboration with your employer, to initiate and deliver a project focused on a ‘live’ management issue, which should allow your work to benefit both yourself and your employer, who through a digital artefact should be able to easily disseminate the findings throughout the business.

Alongside the Management Research Project module, you will also study the module Research Management Skills, which will give you the opportunity to learn the skills needed to design the research for the project, to collect the relevant data, and then to analyse it and present your findings.

Year One

The course allows you to conduct an in-depth research project on a management problem supported by your employer. The module ‘Management Research Skills’ aims to prepare you for the production of the project.
