Description This unit provides research candidates with the opportunity to gain in-depth business-related knowledge in their academic domain and assists them to engage in critical interrogation of academic work. Through reading and in-class discussions, candidates are exposed to seminal papers and key trends that influence the thinking within their discipline. The unit is seminar-based and candidates are expected to actively contribute to class discussions around readings and research ideas. Candidates submit a short written synthesis of the readings assigned for each session. Additionally, based on the readings and discussions, candidates write and present a 5,000 word final essay. Enrolment is limited to research candidates and is by special permission from each discipline and the Director of Doctoral Studies.
