What's a 'B School'? Just wondering.

Not trying to upset anyone here, but I think it would be a good idea if PhD programmes followed the lead of most decent MBA courses and insisted students be of a certain minimum age and/or work background.

I tend to agree with the person that suggested a pen and paper.

What kind of help do you need (i.e. ask a better question or face being ignored)?

Questions like yours (i.e. Please do everything for me types) rarely if ever get responses on here. Its up to YOU to do the hard work in terms of researching possible institutions for suchlike (part of the fun).

Someone might be able to suggest something but (unfortunately) the odds of suchlike are slim. UK Uni's see overseas students as sources of revenue not as funding cases. Sorry.

As suggested TRULY CRAP reason No 1 for doing a PhD: "Because I couldn't get a job".

"I do not agree with the person who mentioned that this forum is predominantly UK based students. In fact the number of US university PhD students posting and viewing message here may be greater."

Not true. In my 2 years plus of contributing on here, I've noted that there is the odd North American contributor, but it is quite literally only the odd one. The vast majority of contributors to here are UK based. No ones saying they can't contribute, its just they don't seem to - probably because there something better out there that suits their needs.

Are you serious? Don't you keep up with current affairs? There has been a massive expansion in the numbers going to University? "A University in every town" etc.. is one of the PM's favourite mantra's. Wait till the Conservatives get in. Then you'll find out what its like to be kept down!

Jeez...ONCE was enough. You didn't need to put it in every post! I'm assuming this relates to something undergraduate anyway.

I'm not being rude here, BUT 1) you've asked the forum for ideas for this end-of-year project and 2) you're now asking for how to write a research proposal. Maybe it would be easier of you just cut to the chase and asked someone on here to do it for you!

That said, have you tried searching google for links/articles, or looking on amazon for related book (or even searching on here for similar questions)?
