Question :


1) Topic and research question(s)

This   box is not asking for a pithy title, it is asking what your dissertation will   be about, so please be specific. 
Think   of particular industry/industries, particular country/countries, particular   areas of study (e.g. sales trends, HRM practices, marketing activity, OB   topics like conflict, culture etc. 
The   topic must fit the brief of being “international” (UK is only admissible if   in conjunction with an international theme) and “business”.
Remember   that the Dissertation is 4,000 words - not 10-12k (MA) or 80k (PhD) ! So, you   need a topic that is sufficiently narrow to be fully “researched” in that   small space.

2) Modules you have studied or are studying that relate to the topic

Mention   whatever is appropriate. 
If   you mention modules studied on your Year Abroad, please include this,   e.g.  “(studied at Copenhagen Business   School on Year Abroad)”
Staff   teaching on relevant WBS modules would probably be appropriate supervisors if   they are available.
If   you are not sure whether your topic fits in a module (or its Department) ask   your Seminar Tutor or Module Leader.

3) Existing relevant literature

This   box is asking for Harvard-style references to academic literature – articles   from academic journals or academic books – that you will use in your   Literature Review
You   are not expected to list all the literature that you will use but to   have made a start.
The   rationale for this is to show that you have done some work to demonstrate   that this is an established area of academic study that you are extending in   some small way. 
You   will be ready to start your Lit Review. 

4) Sources of data and/or Information

This   box is asking for the type of data that you will analyse. This data can be primary,  secondary or tertiary.
Remember   that this is a small project, you will not have the space, or time, to   analyse vast amounts of data
Primary   data is data that you collect yourself
Examples   of primary data:
Questionnaires   (approx x number) from a sample of (students on my course, colleagues at my   internship company in y country, etc) HAVE YOU APPROACHED THESE PEOPLE TO ASK   THEM? This will be quaNtitative data
Interviews   (approx z number) with a sample as above. This will be quaLitative data.
Secondary   data is data that somebody else has collected but not analysed (or you don’t   use their analysis)
Examples   of secondary data: 
Statistics   (sales, employment numbers, revenue, etc etc). Where will you access them? If   on the internet, provide the URL; if from the company, have they given   permission? (This applies even if you work there.) This will be quaNtitative   data.
Written   accounts, such as reviews (as above, show where you will access them). This   will be quaLitative data
Tertiary   data is data that has been collected and analysed by somebody else. 
Examples   of tertiary data: you could discuss and further analyse the data analysed in   academic articles, perhaps comparing that used in different articles. This   will be either quaNtitative (numbers) or quaLitative (words). 

5) Methodology to be employed

This   box is important as supervisors may have a strong preference for qualitative   or quantitative analysis.
You   have already specified your method in the box (above) about data and info;   what is wanted here is methodology :
 Positivist or interpretivist?; 
Quantitative   or qualitative?
Literature   review only?
If you have further ideas about a method of analysis such   as SPSS (if you are able to), you would mention it here; but don’t worry   about it if you haven’t thought that far as you can discuss it with your   Supervisor. 

6)  Any other relevant information 

This   is where you could mention that you have approached a possible supervisor and   they have agreed.
