Your dissertation topic will need to be aligned with your degree program and specialization. For the purposes of this assignment, consider how you could research your chosen dissertation topic through a quantitative lens, using quantitative methods and research questions that are aligned with quantitative research (even if you plan to pursue qualitative methods for your dissertation).
Develop a problem statement, purpose statement, and research questions for your intended dissertation research that will use a quantitative approach. You may want to use the Methods Map to provide an overview of a quantitative approach. When using the map, it is recommended that you begin with “Quantitative Data Collection,” which will provide a list of the method on the right. You can click on any of these for more information. Remember to look at the top box for definitions of terms/concepts.
This is to be based on: (1) the review of the literature in your topic area; (2) the identification of a problem based on your analysis of this literature; (3) adherence to the criteria necessary for a research-worthy problem and well formulated research questions as discussed in the School of Business Prospectus Template; and (4) your understanding of the alternative types of quantitative research studies.
