Supervision of Degree Theses with External Institutions

Our chair offers to supervise degree theses (BA/MA) which students complete in cooperation with an external economic institution. Thus, topics which were handled in e.g. an internship can be deepened and treated on a scientific level within the degree thesis. The degree theses are thereby supposed to prepare their authors for concrete activity in scientific political advising.

These theses should concern a concrete question from the respective institution and at the same time fulfill a high standard within the economic sciences. This requires contact to experts from the respective institutions during the writing of the thesis; the evaluation of the scientific quality and the grading remains the responsibility of the chair for Economic Policy and SMEs.

Preferred institutions are:

  • Ministeries
  • Associations
  • Research institutes
  • Private companies with clear economic focus

Individual suggestions for institutions are also possible; the topics are flexible but must be explicitly economic.
