Information on research practices

When supervising seminar papers and dissertations, we set great importance on creating a balance between assistance and autonomy that’s in line with the philosophy of supervision of the Department “Management.” That means that you can actively and independently design your scientific work, but that you also have the access to a contact partner if you need more intensive support. With the following three building blocks, we help prepare you for writing scientific works:

Kick-off event in the Bachelor's and Master's seminars:
In the kick-off event for our Bachelor's and Master's seminars, we will provide an overview of the content and concrete information on scientific work. Through this event, you will get to know the procedure, preparation, and structure of scientific works. You will become familiar with conducting research, developing, and citing literature resources. You will be given tips on how to meet the requirements of a scientific paper.

Recommendations for scientific papers:
Here you will find a guideline which, in addition to formal requirements, also provides information on the preparation of scientific papers.

Individual support sessions:
Individual support sessions ensure that we support you with your specific questions about your seminar paper or thesis. Particularly, this concerns the discussion of the project in the form of a kick-off and the structure of your work, but also other concrete questions that arise during the preparation of your work. In order to provide you with optimal support, we expect an appointment to be made in a timely manner and careful preparation for the meeting. Please send us the documents required for your appointment the day before at the latest.

Because of our diverse teaching content and research interests, our chair offers a comprehensive and diverse range of topics for your seminar papers and dissertations. The focus is on the theoretically sound processing of practically relevant questions. Topics in the area of determinants of value-based management, tools of corporate management and determinants of corporate governance systems.
