I am studying BA (Hons) Business Management at BCU. I have been asked to choose between a dissertation and an individual business advice project. Both have an 8000 word report. This is a 40 credit module which lasts the whole year. Average grade for first year was 76.17 and for first semester of second year was 78.33, no detriment applies so that's minimum for second year worth 40%.

I would choose own topic for the dissertation but the business to advise would be allocated for the project.

I'm thinking of doing a masters degree after so would a dissertation be better preparation?

I don't know about your course specifically, but a dissertation is great preparation for masters-level study.
