The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree has a status higher than that of other Masters degrees but lower than that of the PhD degree. It is a research degree designed to recognise an original contribution to knowledge and the comments on the originality and significance of the PhD thesis apply here too. However, it is intended that an MPhil thesis be the product of only one year of full-time research (though in practice candidates invariably take longer) and the original contribution to knowledge will, therefore, be less than would be expected in a PhD thesis.
The thesis submitted for the degree demonstrates expertise in the methods of research; displays intellectual independence and makes a substantial original contribution to the subject area.
This course focuses mainly on Marketing and International Management major.
