This unit is aimed at introducing HDR students in The University of Sydney Business School to a broad range of qualitative approaches to research. Students will discover the practical aspects of research design accompanying each of the approaches. They will also be taught how to choose a methodological approach that is appropriate for a particular research enquiry, while keeping in mind the epistemological 'fit' with the research question. This stream also helps students understand the implications of adopting qualitative research methods.
