The MPhil candidate must submit and present a research proposal. The module EBW 801 will prepare the student in writing a research proposal. A candidate will work under the guidance of a supervisor to develop a detailed research proposal according to faculty and departmental guidelines and regulations. The proposal must be presented to the departmental Postgraduate Committee and must be officially approved by all relevant committees before the candidate can commence with his/her formal research for completion of the dissertation. The candidate will continue his/her research under the guidance of his/her supervisor until the research is completed according to the rules and regulations of the University of Pretoria and Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences.
The submission of a high-quality scientific article for publication in a recognised scientific journal is a compulsory condition for the degree to be conferred on the candidate.
The research component contributes 100% towards the total requirement for the degree.
