The initial research proposal will consist of the following SIX (6) items:

1. Identify a business research topic

2. Define the research questions for the identified problem or opportunity

3. Select the appropriate research methodologies and techniques to use for the research project

4. Describe the research process

5. Describe data collection and analysis methods

6. Describe expected research outcomes

Material on Research Methods will be presented in class from week 4 to 6.
