Thesis is the most crucial aspect of your MBA or PhD studies, irrelevant of the fact that you are doing it in the UAE, UK, US or Australia, or any other country. Almost 80% of the students are in a dilemma about the topic and which is the right topic to choose.
When you reach the thesis stage, you will be allocated a professor or supervisor from your university to guide you in the process of topic selection for your research. However, less than 20% of the students actually get help in this regard with the rest wandering out with sometimes making the wrong decision which will haunt them forever.
If you are a student and are about to start your thesis, make sure that you know your options when choosing your thesis research. For starters, it is crucial to understand that you can choose whatever you would like to research about and it shouldn’t be something you have studied. In case you want it to be related to your major subject, it’s an asset for you. Else, it doesn’t matter. What matters is the research question and what value do you bring to the existing literature world with your contribution.
