The dissertation is available to students who have a strong research interest and who are deemed capable of completing an extensive research project. The aim of the dissertation is to complete a substantial research project and successfully analyse a problem, devise appropriate research methods, analyse the results and produce a well-argued, in-depth thesis. It is expected that the dissertation will be conducted over two consecutive semesters although the two 12 credit point units PMGT5851 and PMGT5852 may, with permission, be undertaken concurrently. This unit of study, which must precede PMGT5852 Project Management Dissertation B, should cover the first half of the work required for a complete dissertation project. In particular, it should include almost all project planning, a major proportion of the necessary background research, and a significant proportion of the investigative or design work required of the project.

All students wishing to enrol in Dissertation A and B must submit a research proposal and obtain the approval of the Program Director in order to enrol in these units. Under normal circumstances students will be expected to have a 75% average WAM. Where a student has been granted 24 cp credit on entry and wishes to start the dissertation in their first semester, permission to enrol will be based on the research proposal.
