Qualitative Research Methods - BUSS7903

Year - 2020

This unit is aimed at introducing Business School HDR students to a broad range of qualitative approaches to research. Students discover the practical aspects of research design accompanying each of the approaches. Through this unit, students learn 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.
