    The fifth edition of Research Methods for Business Students brings the theory, philosophy and techniques of research to life and enables students to understand the practical relevance of the research methods. A highly accessible style and logical structure have made this the ‘student choice' and run-away market leader.

    The book is written for students on undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in business, or business-related disciplines.
