Find out from Monique Longhorn, Einsny Phionesgo and John Somerset about the Master of Business (Research) (Accountancy) program at QUT and why you should consider getting a research degree.
By enrolling in a Masters research degree, you will refine and develop your ability to undertake research and enhance your critical thinking skills. You may also have the opportunity to contribute to knowledge in your chosen discipline or acquire skills in understanding and applying the latest research when making business decisions.
The Master of Business (Research) trains students in research methodology techniques and critical evaluation appropriate to their field of study through a specified program of research under academic supervision.
In addition, you are trained in analysing both the literature and debate in the substantive areas of the thesis topic at an advanced level. It may also provide an entry point to a PhD program.
Students wishing to enrol in July should contact the Research Studies Office in the QUT Business School for enrolment advice and course progression details.

Proposed research projects are subject to supervisor availability and resources available within the faculty to support the proposed research topic. Research proposals must be submitted with your application.
Applicants are asked to nominate a supervisor and topic when submitting a formal application. An application is likely to be more successful where a supervisor and topic are well matched.
Applicants should ensure that there is a genuine fit with the potential supervisor's research interests by looking at the interests of the researchers within the relevant school as described on the QUT Business School website. The Research Coordinator within each school can also assist with this process.
This contact should include a transcript of academic records, the topic area which you wish to study, the school in which you wish to undertake your research, and if known, the name of a potential supervisor.
