Overview

For instance, the Management and Languages programme at Heriot-Watt Dubai offers opportunities for research in areas such as Islamic business, international human resource management, cross-cultural management, equality and diversity, emiratisation and other nationalisation policies, marketing, sustainability, accounting, finance and corporate governance.

The research proposal (normally 3 to 4 pages) should contain as much as possible of the following:

  • Statement of objective(s) and/or specific research questions
  • Summary of some of the relevant literature that supports the research objective(s)
  • An indication of the intended research methodology
  • An indication of the theoretical structure and/or conceptual outline
  • A provisional timetable of the major phases of the research process
  • Results expected from the research, e.g., practical value of the research or possible contributions to knowledge, policy or methodology. At this stage we are not looking for a definitive document but merely an indication that you have thought through most of the above issues. Please note that work submitted may be subject to screening using plagiarism software.
