The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) programme is a full research degree that aims to expand student's research knowledge to conduct independent research in different areas of Business Administration. In addition, students are encouraged to develop new ideas or employ well-thought-out methodologies to produce research that has substantial theoretical and practical contributions.
Students will utilise the best-suited research design to explore and/or test informed ideas. The outcome of the research extends the frontiers of knowledge, and students will disseminate the scholarly findings to peers and practitioners, through academic and professional networks, conferences/seminars, and even publications.
Sunway University has a dedicated team of academicians to mentor students along their research journey, as they investigate a topic of their choice. Students may pursue a topic or an issue which they are currently researching within your work area, in which case the M.Phil can also be of direct relevance to current employment. Alternatively, students can choose to undertake research in any particular area they are passionate about. Although students are allowed to choose any research topic of their interest, the research topic must be contemporary, interesting, and timely.
