If you’re assigned a thesis in your HR management course, you may have trouble choosing your research topic. On the one hand, you should impress your professor. On the other hand, it’s important to come up with something manageable and interesting to you. The following guidelines will help you select a winning idea and receive a high grade.
Usually, you’ll get a list of instructions on how to pick a good topic and what mistakes to avoid. Some professors also provide their students with a collection of sample prompts that you can use.
You may consider writing about HR management policies, effectiveness issues, international aspects, etc.
It’s a good idea to read a few newspaper articles, watch a TV show, or find an expert’s report. You can also discuss your ideas with your academic advisor.
You should go to the library and get a few latest issues of HR management magazines. Then, scan the articles paying close attention to the discussion sections.
Sometimes, it makes sense to reexamine an old research in a new perspective or using a more current methodology. However, you should be careful not to repeat somebody else’s work.
As you work on your project you should have goals in place to motivate you to finish in a timely manner. As you complete parts of your work you are getting closer to finishing your work according to your schedule. Maybe you can entice yourself to finish sooner if something was waiting for you upon completion. Make it something fun and enjoyable. It helps if it is something you may not usually enjoy. Make things interesting to encourage yourself to finish faster. You can at least consider trying to get your work done a week or so before your deadline.
