KFU MBA PROJECT GUIDELINES
Chapter one: Introduction
• Problem statement
A research problem is a statement about an area of concern, a condition to be improved, a difficulty to be eliminated, or a troubling question that exists in scholarly literature, in theory, or in practice that points to the need for meaningful understanding and deliberate investigation. In some social science disciplines, the research problem is typically posed in the form of a question.
• Research questions
A research question is the question around which you center your research. It should be clear; focused; concise; complex (not easily answerable with yes or no); and arguable. Defining research questions is not a straightforward task. Generally, there are two approaches which the researcher can follow. The first is to work deductively by identifying a research area, then developing questions within that area and moving from general to specific questions. The second is to work inductively by starting with some specific questions and moving upward in generality and abstraction to more general research questions then to the research area.
• Research aim and objectives
Project objectives (at least 3-4 objectives) should be SMART-Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely. It should focus on what you intend to do in the project. Objectives are usually headed by infinitive verbs such as: to identify, establish, describe, determine, estimate, develop, compare, analyses, and to collect.
Chapter Two: Literature Review
• Overview of significant literature published on a topic.
o Division of works under review into categories (e.g. those in support of a
particular position, those against, and those offering alternative theses entirely)
o Explanation of how each work is similar to and how it varies from the others
• Research hypotheses
It is the assumption for your project work. A research hypothesis is the statement created by researchers when they speculate upon the outcome of a research or experiment.
Chapter Three Research Methodology
The project methodology will be:
• Quantitative or qualitative
Mention if you will collect primary and/or secondary data, and if it is qualitative or quantitative in nature. In quantitative research, where the research seeks to measure variables, the researcher can employ questionnaires, structured interviews, etc. While in qualitative research, where the research seeks to emphasize meanings and experiences related to the phenomena, the researcher can employ semi structured or unstructured interviews, focus group, observations, etc. And finally mention the adequate sample size required.

• And the appropriate data analysis techniques that should be employed.
Methods of analyzing data vary according to the adopted research approach; Quantitative data usually employ statistical analysis( i.e. chi-square test, t-test, z-test, Factor Analysis, Multiple Regression Analysis etc) , while qualitative data involves coding, memoing, abstracting, comparing and others.
Chapter Four: Results

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
