RESEARCH PROPOSAL: TOPIC ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS The purpose of the Research Proposal: Final Assignment is to ensure you appreciate the challenge of setting up an effective research plan, consider the context, research questions, sources, timeline, integrated implications, analysis and writing required. Building a proposal will demand you work through all the research stages explored throughout the course including: clarifying the research question; designing the research; reviewing relevant scholary literature, data collection, preparation and examination; analyzing the data; and reporting on the research. The Research Proposal: Topic Assignment is the first step toward completing the major BUSI600 writing assignment, the Research Proposal: Final Assignment. Your research proposal topic should be one of personal interest/value with three limitations: ? It needs to be something you can find scholarly research on i.e., if you identify a topic that’s too narrow or obscure you may not be able to find enough scholarly research on the topic ? It cannot be a subject upon which you have done a previous assignment. ? Steer clear of political topics/issues since this is not a political science course Ensure the following requirements are met: ? Identify a topic of interest (a sentence or two), publish a problem statement that explains the management dilemma, the management research question hierarchy for the problem (<100 words) and concludes with the research question(s) (<100 words). ? Identify at least 10 scholarly (peer reviewed) journal articles and create an Annotated Bibliography that specifically explains each article’s relevance to your topic (6-8 sentences per reference). ? Use proper grammar, current APA format and submit in MS Word format. ? It does not require an abstract or Biblical integration. Do not reuse work from any previous courses you have taken.
