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.
Hello, again. I hope you found that interesting. It’s fascinating to think about the advantages and disadvantages of international trade. 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. Students produce a final research report and presentation, which really brings together all the language, numeracy and business skills, and knowledge that they gain on the other modules.
It’s our way of ensuring that our IFP students are ready to succeed in their main undergraduate studies. Let me hand over to Baba.
