CORE RESEARCH AREAS

ARC assists students pursuing graduate degrees in Business (including MBA, PhD, and DPhil Finance and Management type degrees) with cutting-edge graduate-level and doctoral research in Business, Leadership & Management focus areas. We utilise a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods to study topics such as how to improve company or organisational structure and how data science can be better applied to influence business decisions. Much of our research is centred on the emergence of technology and potential uses of big data. Our clients’ key research areas include Advanced Data Analytics, Corporate Governance, Organisational Leadership, and Enterprise Scalability.

ARC assists students taking MSc/PhD/MPhil/DPhil programmes covering a wide variety of topics in the field of Criminology. Our doctoral research in this area frequently focuses on cybercrime, forensic analysis, socioeconomic factors, spatiotemporal patterns of crime and recidivism, and government-sponsored drug policies and initiatives. Our clients, especially those exploring areas other than forensics, often build their research gaps by gathering data directly from corrections officers, chaplains, counsellors, or prison wardens.

ARC frequently assists BEd, MA/MEd/MPhil, and PhD/EdD/DPhil students with completing dissertation studies in Education. Our research for clients often focuses on academic outcomes and methodologies to improve educational performance. A very common approach for these studies is to utilise qualitative methods, including interviews and focus group surveys, to explore the experiences and perceptions of school counsellors, educators, parents, and even students. For quantitative studies, a popular research methodology is a research design that utilises academic outcomes data (e.g. grade point averages, test scores) for the purpose of developing inferences regarding the potential for improvements in academic performance. We frequently assist Education clients with researching how factors such as race, special education needs, and community college schooling impact the quality of education received.

ARC assists BSc, MSc/MPhil, PhD/DPhil students with graduate and doctoral studies of Informatics and Information Sciences. The advent of cloud computing and technology-driven business solutions has created space for many viable research topics in this field. In particular, many of our clients are exploring how data and security systems can be improved for the purpose of enhancing governmental or organisational infrastructure in a variety of sectors.

ARC works with BNurs/BSc, MNurs/MSc, and DNurs/PhD students to complete their graduate- and doctorate studies. Many of our nursing clients focus their doctoral research on practice-oriented topics, with the aim of developing useful research for the benefit of practitioners working in clinical and hospital settings. We assist with many Doctoral Projects, which often require either an evaluation of existing measures for the purpose of evaluating a healthcare quality improvement project; the designing of a staff intervention to improve nurses’ and the hospital staff’s knowledge; or the development of stronger clinical guidelines to improve the standard of care.

ARC works with many BA/BSc, MSc, DClinPsy, and PhD students on their graduate-level and doctoral studies. We specialise in all areas of Psychology and the Behavioural Sciences, and frequently assist with studies related to every aspect of human behaviour including clinical issues, cognitive development, developmental delays, experimental psychology, psychological health, neuropsychology, and more! ARC’s top-notch statistical consulting team is capable of demystifying any psychometric survey data, and our industry-leading qualitative analysis team utilises a variety of research methodologies to comprehensively analyse all aspects of human behaviour.

ARC assists BA/BSc, MA/MSc, MPA, DPA, and PhD students with their Public Administration studies. Many of our clients’ dissertation studies are focused on how public experiences or perceptions can be applied to drive improvements in organisational or health policy, often within the military. Our research for clients encompasses all aspects of Public Administration, including issues related to the advancement of organisational, administrative, and policy sciences, in both governmental and business settings.

ARC has assisted students undertaking BSc/MSc/MPH/DrPH/PhD degrees to complete their advanced-level studies. Our Public Health research touches on a variety of current issues related to biostatistics, health economics, environmental health, global health, epidemiology, and pharmacology. We utilise cutting-edge qualitative research methods and advanced quantitative statistical analysis tools.

ARC provides custom support to students undertaking BTh, MTh, and DTh degree programmes as well as other MA, MSc, MPhil, PhD, DPhil type Theology degrees to complete their advanced-level research studies. ARC’s research for our Theology clients often focuses on the ways academic research from other disciplines, such as Business or Education, can be applied to catalyse improvements in religious organisations. Our organisation is quite mindful that the ultimate goal of studies in Theology revolves around addressing the dissonance that exists between the findings of traditional science and teachings of the Bible.

ARC supports students undertaking BSc, MSc and PhD programmes to complete their degree programmes in Applied and Theoretical Statistics. ARC’s in-house statistical consulting team specialises in all aspects of statistical analysis related to big data and machine learning, clinical trials, causal inference (via structural equation modelling), genomics, spatial epidemiology, and survival analysis. At ARC, we take particular pride in the rigour and depth of our statistical research. We are adept at both conducting applied and theoretical statistical analyses and explaining the underlying constructs and theories.
