Finalizing your Program
The master’s thesis demonstrates the candidate’s ability to independently tackle a particular problem within a set period of time using academic methods. Topics that are related to the foci of the MIBAS curriculum are permitted.
Students are expected to formulate a research question (i.e., topic selection) and work independently on the topic: develop a plan, conduct in-depth literature research, collect and evaluate data, analyse literature and sources, and autonomously write a final academic thesis.
Typically, students develop a topic in accordance with the thesis supervisor. It is recommended to check individual information, prerequisites and recommendations provided by the supervisors, e.g. on the respective chair’s website.
Formal requirement for registering your master’s thesis is that you have earned 60 credits. Further relevant information about formal requirements, supervisors, etc. can be found in the Academic Office's service section on final papers.
