Module Description: In this module the student will undertake a short research project. The student will focus on applying the knowledge acquired from the previous modules. This project could be an extension to one or more research works/assignments submitted in previous modules. The student will focus on applying the knowledge learnt in several modules to analyse, revise, improve and assess a relevant topic. This could include topics on any area of finance and other related areas in the discipline of finance. The student will produce a research report, including an executive summary and a detailed report. Assessment will be done by two examiners, i.e., an internal and an external examiner.
