This assignment aims at ensuring that students have familiarised themselves with a general framework of at least one management related topic. Students will be required to apply relevant theoretical concepts with the use of practical examples in most cases in a written research paper and discuss their topic via a live presentation.
Topics and presentation schedule:
Organise yourselves into groups of not more than 4 students and not less than 3 students.
Please choose from one of the following topics from the list (see below).
Topics will be allocated on a ‘first come- first served basis’ and will be reserved by your lecturer in writing via email.
Please ensure that you include a list of all of the group members in the email. In the event of too many students choosing the same topic, preference will be given to those students who have secured the topic first and subsequent groups will be required to choose another topic.
Research on the broad topic is a group activity and each student must contribute to that work. Each student in the group will then research, in depth an individual component drawn from the broad research topic.
