Completion of Week 2 and Introduction to Week 3 – Research Skills

Now that you have completed the Business Concepts week, Helen will introduce you to the third and final week - Research Skills, which is led by Babar.

I hope you enjoyed learning about the historical and theoretical aspects of business operations, as well as Porter’s five forces framework. Your third and final week on this short course is with Baba. He will help you to understand how to select research methodology, which is an essential skill for university students. On the main IFP business here at the university, Baba’s research project module is taken in the second semester.
