Admission to the dissertation stream requires an average grade of at least 80% in a minimum of four Commerce program units, interview by the Associate Dean Postgraduate, and a formal dissertation proposal agreed to by a nominated supervisor and the Associate Dean Postgraduate. Final approval will depend on the nature of the proposed topic and the availability of appropriate supervisory expertise. This unit, which must be taken in conjunction with BUSS6998 Business Research Methods, requires delivery of an assessable presentation to academics and peers at the mid-point of the first semester of dissertation stream candidature. The presentation must address the research proposal, relationship to existing scholarship, research aims and purpose, and concepts, design and methods to be used and will be evaluated by academic assessors at a research seminar convened by the Associate Dean Postgraduate.|
