Final Theses

General Notes | Application

General Notes

The objective of a final thesis is "to work independently on a problem from the course of study using scientific methods and according to scientific rules" (§ 18 Examination Regulations for Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programs in Business Administration).


Possible topics for a thesis are typically related to one of the research areas. In the context of your application for a thesis, you may also propose a topic.


In the context of Bachelor's theses, we usually assign literature reviews in which you present and analyze the current state of the scientific literature. In the context of master's theses, you primarily conduct empirical analyses.
