A research higher degree is a program of supervised research and study leading to the preparation of a thesis. The holder of a research higher degree will have submitted a thesis which examiners have declared to have provided a contribution to knowledge and demonstrated the candidate's capacity to carry out independent research.
The Faculty of Business and Law supports research at Honours, Masters and Doctoral level and all research activities are coordinated by the Associate Dean (Research) in conjunction with the Faculty Research Committee. Research activity in the form of scholarly publications, postgraduate research supervision and Research Grants is reported through the Associate Dean (Research) and the Dean to the University Research Board and the Postgraduate Research Advisory Panel.
The Faculty is committed to undertaking research supporting endeavours to build an internationally competitive community and brings together a variety of business related disciplines organised into the three schools.
Thematic priorities have been established for research endeavours and significant among these are relationship marketing, tourism, educational delivery at tertiary level and international business. Potential research candidates may be able to secure research opportunities within existing projects in these thematic areas or may alternatively negotiate a topic of their choice where appropriate research supervision can be found.

The Masters Degree by Research is a program of supervised research and study leading to the submission of a thesis which makes a contribution to knowledge. The program is governed by the Rules for Masters Degrees by Research which provide details regarding all aspects of admission, progression, submission and examination of the thesis. Consultation with the Associate Dean (Research) of the appropriate faculty will assist applicants to determine eligibility for admission, to identify the proposed areas of research and to ascertain the availability of suitable supervisors.
To complete the program, a candidate will normally study for an expected period of 2 years (full-time) or 4 years (part-time). New candidates may enrol at any time of year and continuing candidates will be re-enrolled at the beginning of each academic year. The courses in which Masters students enrol are ungraded. Candidates who may be required to complete prescribed courses will be enrolled in a separate program (CP20).
