Course content

Management and organisations are focus areas of research within the fields of human resource management and organisational studies. You will explore qualitative and quantitative methods of research specifically designed to interrogate the fields of management and organisations.

MRes Management and Organisation is designed for those wishing to follow a career in research and/or academia, there is a strong research focus in this degree, although there are some taught elements which will support your knowledge of the research field. An MRes is the ideal first step if you hope to progress to doctoral studies, such as a PhD.

You deepen your thinking about management and organisations and develop a broader understanding of the changing role and contemporary perception of management.

MRes Management and Organisation explores research and management issues, such as:

  • research skills, including both quantitative and qualitative approaches
  • theoretical stances underpinning different approaches to research
  • how to design a research proposal, including construction of research questions and/or hypotheses
  • management of a research project
  • management theory
  • reflection on organisational behaviour and human resource management

We equip you with the skills and knowledge to appreciate the depth and breadth of management and organisational theories and techniques and apply these within a social science context. You benefit from cutting edge social science research conducted by our Organisation Studies and Human Resource Management Group who specialise in understanding organisations and organisational development through the lens of its people.

You study at Essex Business School (EBS). We don’t just think about business as being a collection of equipment, buildings and stock, instead we consider a business to be an interconnected group of people. People who have the power to influence, and be influenced by, the operations of that business. This approach to understanding the human aspects of why businesses operate in the way they do lends itself perfectly to studying management and organisations.
