Business Administration III Management, Course Module

The final term in a range of courses at Stockholm Business School is on the one hand the culmination of their study of Business and Management, exploring the Frontiers of Management research, whereas on the other hand it enables students to develop their own research abilities.

Whilst the course Frontiers of Management as the title suggests takes our students to the cutting edge debates of research within this field, the course on research methods along with the final course associated with the candidate degree thesis, are designed to help students embark on their own research endeavors and as such successfully complete their degrees.
