A Research Project is quite often an important part of the curriculum for MBA students in a number of universities and schools of management around the world. These students need to know the specific format and methodology of proceeding with the task. Though they are taught the basics of Research Methodology, they are clueless about the practical aspect of undertaking this task and are likely to flounder and have a hard time trying to put things together in the appropriate format. This book will provide guidelines to MBA students, and will also be useful to Ph.D. scholars.
