Overview

Training and support

Students in the Management programme at the The University of Edinburgh undertake training in research skills and design, research methodologies in business and management and, through supervised reading courses, develop their knowledge in specific areas of business and management research. 

Research training courses involve a combination of lectures, seminars and self-directed reading, and are mainly assessed by means of extended essays. Thesis research and writing is guided by two or more supervisors appointed from the academic staff of the University. Progress is formally evaluated annually.
