After reading the required background material and finding at least two other resources on your own, write a paper discussing the topic:

Selecting a Suitable Topic in Business Research
In your paper, you should answer the following questions using your own evaluation and critical thinking.

1. What is empirical research and how it is related to applied research?

2. Describe two topics of your interest and using the information of the book chapter, justify why those two topics could be suitable for your own research. (Remember that this is just an exercise and you do not have to use these topics for your DSP at the end of the program).

3. Using the material from Bhattacherjee (2012), describe in detail the sources you are using to identify these two topics and also the criteria for topic selection that you are considering.

Assignment Expectations

Length: The written component of this assignment should be 5-7 pages long (double-spaced) without counting the cover page and reference page.

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to the questions.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity. We encourage you to use tools such as grammarly.com and proofread your paper before submission.

Paper 2:

To complete this SLP, review the following material:

Murray, N. (2008). Writing up your university assignments and research projects: A practical handbook Open University Press. Chapter 6: What are the different components of a research project?

Ong, W., Lee, D., Ye, A., Wu, C. and Liao, S. (2015). IKEA Case Study. Created with Wix.com http://wjong7.wixsite.com/ikeacasestudies 

Chapter 6 of Murray (2008) book provides a description of what a research project should look like with a list of each of the components. This structure is very similar to the structure of the Doctoral Study Project required at the end of this program. For this exercise, review this chapter as an illustration.

Next, review the IKEA case study presented in a website (not a paper) with a nice description of the organizational case study.

After reading the required background material and finding at least two other resources on your own, write a 3-4 page paper (without counting the cover page and the page with references) discussing the topic:

Compare and contrast business report and academic research project writing
In your paper, you should answer the following questions using your own evaluation and critical thinking.

1. How can the IKEA Case Study become an academic research project report?

2. What did you like/dislike from the IKEA Case Study?

3. What are the pros and cons of using the traditional academic research project structure?
