Welcome to the very first issue of the Postgraduate Journal of Management Research which celebrates the work of our MSc students.  As the journal editors, Amanda and Victoria are excited to launch this journal which showcases a selection of dissertation abstracts produced by our 2022-23 cohort students on the MSc Management, MSc International Business and Management and MSc Management and Digital Business programmes. The research summarised within these abstracts provides an insight into the hard work and passion these students have shown in managing and conducting their own research project to create some meaningful and thought-provoking insights into current management issues.  For example, this first issue provides abstracts on important and timely topics, including gender equality in the workplace, perceptions of corporate social responsibility and ethnic minority entrepreneurship to name just a few. Additionally, an international outlook is evident across the abstracts within this first issue, with students having focused their research on Bangladesh, the UK, Nigeria and Sri-Lanka. As such, not only are the research abstracts addressing key business issues, but perspectives from across the globe are also being represented. 

We hope you enjoy reading the abstracts contained within this first issue, whether this is to learn more about the research our MSc students are undertaking or to provide inspiration for your own research project.
