“Research gives students the opportunity to practice problem-solving skills […] The second reason students should study research methods is that someday they will be executives making decisions based on the claims of experts, such as consultants and other persuasive people, with proposed solutions to their problems. A good executive must know how to appraise the value of information critically, no matter what the source. To be able to question the basis of claims and to know how to analyse the evidence, would be a good thing indeed.” (Financial Times, 2014)
