Module 7: Term Paper Research and Analysis
2 Credits

The Term Paper requirement is designed to be a unique self-study course for participants to the online certificate programme. This module will enable students to develop necessary research skills expected at the post-graduate level. This module requires students to write an original analytical paper publishable as a working paper based on primary or secondary data. The module is aimed at facilitating the engagement of course participants with quality research. The participants will be encouraged to work closely with a faculty member, who will guide them systematically in selecting and developing a research area, use appropriate methods for data collection, and produce a paper with an analytical framework. Country specific case studies can be taken.
