As you get closer to starting your own dissertation, you will need to choose a topic in your first dissertation, so it is essential to start preparing.
Go to the Dissertation Database, and locate an interesting topic on global IT. Here are some pointers that will help critically evaluate some viable topics.
Is the topic attainable for a first-time dissertation student?
Is the problem rooted in the literature?
Is the research empirical, i.e., is there a survey, is there an interview guide, has the data been analyzed via some statistical tool?
Is there a theoretical model or framework discussed?
Discuss the topic, the problem the model has been used in the research, and any present findings. Do not read the entire dissertation, as the abstract and chapter one introduction should give a clear understanding of the research.
