WritePass: Business & Management Dissertation Topics

1.0. Introduction

The aim of this guide is to assist in selecting business & management dissertation topics and to provide practical advice on how to go about writing a dissertation. Business dissertations incorporate numerous topics covering various aspects of business studies.

Abstract:  A summary of the dissertation

Table of Contents

Introduction: Introduces the study and summaries the state of area prior to the research. This section outlines the problem(s) to be investigated, the aims and objectives of the research and describes the methodologies used. Additionally, an outline of the overall dissertation structure may be included.

Literature Review: This accounts the previously written, published and unpublished literature on the selected research topic. The purpose of conducting a review on the existing knowledge and ideas on the topic is to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the research area whilst defining a guiding concept for the dissertation. To achieve this, four important steps must be followed: concentrate on the relevant theories; break down the topic and define key terms; examine recent research in the area; and conclude with the research questions that will be resolved in the study.

Methodology: This section is designed to give the reader a coherent, clear and precise account of how the study was conducted. The section is composed of number of sub-sections which should include: research philosophy, research approach, research strategy, data collection and any problems encountered in the data gathering process, data reliability, validity and generalizability, and finally, ethical issues and possible limitations with the research.

Results:  An essential tip for this section is to only report the findings of the study in the most appropriate manner, resisting in the process the temptation to interpret or draw conclusions.

Discussion: The interpretation of the results is undertaken in this section. The first task is to state what the results of the study are by outlining the findings.  Account for the findings by indicating whether or not the research hypothesis has been supported. The second task involves linking the results with the evidence discussed in the literature review. Finally, explore the implications of the findings with regards to the research questions together with consideration of the direction and form that future research should take.

Conclusion: This section provides a summary to the overall study and final comments and judgements. The final comment should entail making suggestions for improvement and speculations for future research.

References: Approval should be sought from University for appropriate layout

Appendices: This section contains graphs and diagrams used when writing the dissertation. The purpose of appendices is essentially to enable the expansion of information only included in abbreviated format in the body of the dissertation. Make sure that vital information is not mentioned here for the first time.

      I am presently doing my MBA IN Business Administration and I am a bit confused as to what topic should I write on, but I decided that I should concentrate on a leadership topic.
      this is a company I work for in Trinidad and Tobago

      Can the success of TTPOST be attributed to a leadership philosophy to create an Organisation equipped with the capabilities to continuously innovate, learn and renew?
      Any further ideas or suggestions

      • Ty says:

        Hi Amryll,

        Thank you for coming on our website and posting a question.

        When dealing with any essay / dissertation that has to do with leadership, especially at a Masters level, I would recommend embedding the main leadership theories in your question and / or research aims. It should be part of your research.

        As a recap, the major forms of leadership are trait leadership, transactional, transformational and situational. So if I were to rephrase your topic, I’d do write it as follows:

        Title: “An investigation of the impact of leadership philosophies on corporate performance and innovation: a case of TTPOST”
        Research Question: “In what way(s) has the leadership philosophy at TTPOST (if present), impacted on the organisation’s success and innovative capability.”

        Research Aims / Objectives:
        1. To identify the leadership philosophies present within TTPOST, in relation to the core leadership theories.
        2. To investigate whether a link exists between the leadership practice and the organisation’s functions and performance.
        3. To recommend strategies on how the organisation can better utilize it’s leadership potential to achieve better organisational performance.

        I hope this helps. If you need more assistance, especially in having it written, kindly send an email to info [at] writepass.com

        Cheers.

          Hi guys,

          I’m about to start my dissertation for my International Business degree. I wanted to do a topic focused on User Experience Design and how it is an under-exploited area that can be utilised to give brands a competitive advantage?

          Problem is, my question is far too broad and I don’t really know where to take it. I want to relate it as close to business as possible but struggling to have the confidence in the question.

          Can anyone help?

  1. Rajan says:

    I am going to start my dissertation. I am doing MS in Managing Global Business. I am interested Enterprise and Innovation. I just thought to research about SME challenges in India. Please can u recommend good topic and some issues around that to raise a question to resarch sir.

    • Ty says:

      Hi Rajan,

      Thank you for your comment. Since you are studying Global Business, then perhaps you could focus on that. Perhaps a more appropriate topic could: The Challenges facing SMEs in India seeking to export into western markets. A case study of [any SME in India you know that exports into any western country].

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

  2. dammy says:

    i am currently undergoing my masters in international business and i am thinking of writing my dissertation on international hrm. please advice on topics to write on

  3. Frank says:

    I am currently studying MSc in Strategic Management and I at a loss as to what topic to go for for my dissertation. I would like to research on something to do with challenges facing the banking sector in Africa.

    please enlighten me on how to go about it.

    Frank

    • Ty says:

      Hi Frank,

      This sounds like an ideal topic, but I think it may be too broad for a dissertation topic. Though Africa is usually seen as “one country”, it is made up of over 50, with different banking industries. I think it’d be wise to focus on just one country e.g. South Africa or Nigeria.

      Speaking about Nigeria, there have been gross mismanagement of funds, which has led to the Central Bank taking over some insolvent banks, and firing their managers. If you were to focus on these as your dissertation area, then your ideal topic could be: “An investigation of the challenges facing the African Banking Sector: a case of Nigerian Banks”.

      You could then conduct a case study approach using a mix of secondary data available online, quantitative data from the CBN database, and finally, if possible, semi structured interviews with some banking managers or academics within that field.

      I hope this helps Frank.

  4. AOO says:

    Hello,
    I am about to begin my final dissertation for my Masters in Business Management. After a lot of pondering, I decided to research in the strategy of retail industry in U.S. My proposed topic is ” Success of Warehouse Membership clubs in U.S: A case study of Sam’s Club, Costco and BJ’s wholesale”.

    The problem I have is that I don’t know how to go about it(i.e the structure). Also need some input on the Literature review.

    Thanks. Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Ty says:

      Hi AOO,

      I believe you have a good topic. However, for a dissertation, I think you should make it focused on one or 2 companies, and not 3. Focusing on 3 companies may make your research very lengthy, as you are not just considering interviews (or research) in one company, but in 3.

      Therefore I’d refine the topic as follows: “Investigating the success of warehouse membership clubs in the US: A case study of Sam’s Club and Costco.”

      Regarding structure, I believe yous should review the following articles on our website:
      http://writepass.com/journal/2011/10/how-to-structure-a-dissertation/
      http://writepass.com/journal/2011/10/how-to-structure-a-dissertation-chapters-sub-chapters/

      In terms of how you should approach your literature review, you should search for literature and textbooks on warehouse membership clubs, and their success rates. I believe you should be able to find sufficient information on these. However, it is usually wise to follow a top down approach with literature reviews, so you may start with discussing retail, store formats, then the relevance of warehouse membership clubs, their problems and difficulties etc.

      In terms of your data analysis, I believe you should adopt a case study approach. Hence using a combination of secondary research and if possible, primary.

      Hope this helps..

      Regards,

  5. Bb says:

    Hello.
    I am about to write my dissertation and have been thinking of Corporate Social responsibility.

    I would like to focus on the Wine and spirit industry taking Diageo and Pernord Ricard as case studies.

    What suggestion can you give regarding the project title? In addition, it will be difficult for me to use surveys and questionnaires, so I intend on using just secondary data.

    • Ty says:

      Hi Bb,

      Thank you for your comment.

      I believe an ideal topic could be:

      Investigating Corporate Social Responsibility in the Wine and Spirit Industry: A case of Diageo and Pernord Richard.

      Regarding your methodology, I believe it would be hard to get primary data, due to access issues in such large organizations. If you do, then go ahead with it. If not, then you’d have to go with secondary data. You could use case study research (researching quantitative data from Annual Reports and articles sourced from journals online).

      If you need any help in data collection, analysis, or in writing and editing your work, then we’d be happy to help, kindly contact us at [email protected].

      Regards,

  6. Sonny says:

    Hi there,

    I just started writing my dissertation for Msc in International Business and my topic is ‘impact of internet banking on young consumers in the UK and India’. I am not entirely sure about the topic and is clueless as to how i should go about it. I am interested in Internet Banking so something related to that would be great. I hope you can shed some light on me.

    Regards

    Sonny

    • Ty says:

      Hi Sonny,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Regarding your topic, I believe you are asking the wrong question.

      If you investigate the impact of internet banking, it may not have that much of an impact, except that it makes banking easier. If so, then does this make a strong case? and if so, then for who?

      How about you try out the following topic:

      An investigation of the attitude and adoption rate of young people towards internet banking in UK and India.

      In order words, you would be assessing if internet banking amongst young people is more popular and widely adopted in one country compared to another.

      Even if the topic is approved, then you may struggle finding a commercial justification for the topic. I believe you may do better by choosing a more commercially viable topic, since you are studying international business. How about you review some of the topics we have online here and choose any you may be interested in

    Hi,

    I just discovered this site, it’s great!

    I am currently undergoing my MBA in Marketing; I’m having difficulty with my topic. I would like to research on IT startups in Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, or South Africa).
    Can you kindly recommend good topic ideas and methods?

    Best,

    • Bea says:

      Hello,

      I would like to take this opportunity to revise my question. As a marketing and product manager in the IT industry and marketing MBA student I would like to research the area of marketing in web-base and apps in Africa. Can you kindly assist in narrowing down the topic and feed back on appropriate methods?

      I look forward to a response.

      Best

      • Ty says:

        Hello Bea,

        Thanks for your question… and your persistence 🙂

        Web based applications are not that popular in Africa, and when I had this discussion previously with an IT executive down there, the notion was “would you trust a company to hold your secure data, especially given irregularities in power and internet supply”.

        As such, any web based enterprise application (I believe you’d like to discuss enterprise), would need severe marketing and operational efforts to cross this hurdle. As such, perhaps an ideal topic could be:

        “Investigating the potential success and effectiveness of a web based enterprise software start-up in Africa [I’d prefer if you change to your particular country of choice as African countries could differ in their development and adoption e.g. South Africa would be different from Nigeria]. A case of [whatever company you’d like to investigate].

        Your research objectives would centre on ascertaining the hurdles these companies would likely face, and how their marketing and operational efforts could be directed towards overcoming these hurdles.

        Your methodology should be a mixture of questionnaires (would people use it and what are their concerns) and interviews (what do executives feel about it)?

        Hope this helps

I just wanted to know how I can word it into a good question and if I should focus on one company or two companies. thank you

    • Ty says:

      Hello Kirsty, perhaps the following could help:

      The impact of technology on improving customer service within organisations: a case of XYZ Plc

      Within the dissertation, you could focus on a call centre operation or a similar organisation, and how the deployment of a particular technology or system has enabled them improve customer satisfaction etc…

  14. Wawa says:

    Hi,,, i am studying in IMBA ,,,, your website is useful for people,,, i have to plan to write the dissertation and i ‘m interested in SMES ,,,,do you have any suggestions about the topic related to smes and the case study : Thailand ,,,many thanks 🙂

    • Ty says:

      Hello Wawa,

      You haven’t really been that specific in your topic, except that you would like to study SMEs and Thailand.

      Regarding SMEs, you could focus on its major challenges: growth, success, profit or marketing.

      So essentially, an idea topic could be: Investigating SME [Marketing] challenges in Thailand. You could replace marketing, with profit etc, depending on what you’re interested in focusing on.

      This way you could pick about 5 SMEs and interview them on their most popular challenges regarding marketing, and your dissertation would focus on recommendations they could use in battling these.

      Hope this helps.

      • Wawa says:

        Is it possible if i ll try to write about sme and government ,sucessful ,,case study in thailand and can you give me the idea of the title ,,, thanks
        sincerely yours,
        Wawa

        • Ty says:

          Hello Wawa,

          I may not be able to provide you something specific to Thailand, but in terms of generic topics, you could use:

          An analysis of the extent to which SMEs understand and utilise available government support within their respective sectors. A case study of a company within a sector of your choosing.

          I hope that helps

I was thinking about writing my disseration in the topic of tourism/economics/Thailand and maybe perhaps involves how to improve the image by providing sustainable tourism. Could you please suggest me any interesting topics or perhaps ideas/thought or comments. All welcome! Thank you for your time 🙂

      Hello Abdulrahman,

      I think it’s best you think through your entire dissertation first before you even start.

      In doing so, you should consider where you would get your data and how you’d be analysing it.

      I am sure you already know that you can gather data through either primary or secondary research. If primary, then you must know how you would be gathering and analysing the data. You must also be 100% sure that you’d be able to gain access to the data source.

      If secondary (which is usually more straightforward), you must know that the data is available, and you’d be able to analyse it properly.

      Most times I’d recommend thinking through the whole process even before you start.

      We offer dissertation outline services that could really help. You could contact us if you need any of such assistance.

      Kind Regards,

      Hi Jo Jo,

      I think you’re facing a big issue here, seeing as you do not really know what you want to focus on.

      I’d advise that you go through the dissertation topics on this page first, to see if there’s something you are interested in.

      Also, why don’t you email us directly, or call us, and speak with a member of staff. We may be able to discuss options for you, and really help you, especially as we offer dissertation outline services – which are 1 – 3 page documents that give you a better dissertation idea.

      I’d really like to know what you’re thinking and what your interests are before I can help you.

      Regards,

Anyway i was wondering if you guys can help me in picking up a topic so i can focus on that and do some research on it, i would really appreciate it.

      Hello J Ali,

      Thank you for your email.

      Well the main purpose of this post is to present people with as many dissertation ideas as possible.

      If you go through each of these titles, I am sure you’d find one that you’d be interested in. If you don’t then perhaps you should think about which field in business really interests you, and pursue that.

      It’s hard to recommend a topic for you when you’re not really sure what you’re interested in. Perhaps you should give us a call and speak with a member of our team who’d be better placed to assist you further. But first, read through the topics on this post.

      I hope that helps.

      Regards,

    Hi,

    I’m doing an MSc in Management with International Business and I’m struggling to pick a topic for my dissertation. I am looking to focus on Myanmar and my initial thoughts are around how local companies can sustain their competitive advantage. The trade embargoes have recently been lifted and a lot of international companies will be looking to enter the market which will have an effect of local organizations who have had little competition from overseas.

    I’m not really sure how developed this idea currently is but any help to define it better would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
