Manual for the application for supervision of the thesis

Anyone wishing to write a thesis at the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics must first apply for supervision via the responsible examination board using the procedure described below.

The deadline for submitting your application is March 15 if you intend to write your thesis during the summer semester, and September 15 if you intend to write your thesis during the winter semester. It is not possible to submit an application after the deadline. Incomplete applications or application with missing information will not be processed!

Please note that the individual professors can have additional pre-requirements for supervising your thesis. Only if you match these requirements, you may write a thesis at this professorship. Please check the individual professorship websites, if your preferred professor(s) have any additional requirements.
