This unit deals with the practical aspects of critically evaluating existing knowledge in a selected business field, and effectively communicating, in a clear and persuasive way, insights gained from this assessment in a literature review. This capability is crucial for successful research projects at doctoral level.
The unit also assists candidates to situate their proposed research, and chosen research methods, within the body of existing research within their discipline. This will allow them to make knowledgeable choices about methods for undertaking that research and to develop clear and relevant research questions, propositions or hypotheses.
The main output from the unit is a draft of the literature review chapter of the thesis. The work is usually also incorporated into the candidate's research proposal for MPD911.
MPD910 is normally undertaken in the candidate's first trimester after commencing their research project and should be taken at the same time as MPD911.
