MBA Dissertation Resources
The importance of dissertation papers is always high in a student’s career regardless the subject of his/her study. It is a kind of project where the researcher is expected to choose a suitable subject on which enough data is tangible, clearly point out the problems that he/she is trying to address regarding the subject of the thesis, gather information pertaining to that particular field of knowledge, explain and analyse the data and the methods that are going to be used in solving the research problem questions, provide a unique, subjective logic to adhere the argument, and provide a proper conclusion within a given period of time.
For the MBA students, the dissertation paper, however, plays an even more important role. Since one of the many aspects of a dissertation project is to undertake a hard and huge task under the pressure of a deadline, the business companies pay special attention towards the candidate’s dissertation paper, while recruiting. One must remember that in case of the MBA dissertations, the thesis should be strong and logically sound to appeal the target audience which, in this case, comprises of the management strategists, business entrepreneurs and other experienced and knowledgeable people employed within business sector as well as lucid and comprehensible for people outside the target audience to understand. And to do all that, one, most importantly, needs to gather a considerable amount of data to deal with the problems.
There are various accepted methods of information piling, which has its own advantage and disadvantages. The methods that one often comes across while going through an MBA dissertation, and which are popular among the students include the following:-
These are of highest value in MBA dissertation. In this case the interviewer gets the opportunity to approach the respondents face to face, which, naturally helps to take more and professional information out of the replier that one finds suitable for the particular question among others. Again, this advantage also provides the chance for the interviewer to have a complete control over the pace, and direction of the interview. In fact, one might have the whole conversation recorded if necessary, and that adds to the authenticity of the research method the most. Despite of these advantages, the most serious hindrance of this method is the expenditure of money, and of time. Conducting a personal interview requires a huge amount of fortune, and time that most of the MBA students cannot spare.
The advantage of a telephone interview is that, here also, you can confront the respondent directly, for a lesser expenditure of money and time. But, the results, as expected, are not generally as satisfactory as the personal interview.
One of the most serious difficulties that an MBA student faces while writing his/her dissertation paper is the gathering of enough data – since the MBA programs rely upon the understanding of the market itself, and since in today’s world the market is divided into many small groups of people, the accumulation of data is a herculean task. Again, it is important to gather data from authentic sources. Therefore, lacking the luxury of time, many MBA students consult expert mentors working under reputed surveying agencies.
The different types of commercial surveys include the following:-
These surveys are generally conducted at regular intervals. The agencies conduct periodic surveys at intervals ranging from a week to a year. They encounter a new sample of respondents each time with the same questionnaires in order to capture the change of trends of a period of time.
These surveys are conducted among a group of people who have agreed to answer some questionnaires via mail. They are also done by the means of personal, or telephone interviews. This commercial process provides the advantage of getting all the personal information of the respondents ready beforehand which categorizes them in different groups.
These surveys are done by the agencies with the questionnaires from different clients. It might include both the panel survey as well as random respondents. The chief advantage here is the reduction of cost.
