This programme aims to provide students with a solid theoretical and practical background to successfully complete their scientific research work in Business Economics, Management, Marketing and Finance. The MSc thesis typically entails a major research project from which students conduct original theory based research, working in close collaboration with a supervisor, who oversees all stages of the thesis from the initial proposal through to the final defence. Students learn to carry out a valid study and acquire common research-related competencies such as topic selection addressing a contemporary business issue in their chosen area of specialization, proposal preparation, literature reviewing, hypothesis/ methodology or experimental design formulation, data collection, scientific writing and critical interpretation of results. Linked to the thematic area of their research work, students apply technical and analytical skills learned in their coursework to develop strategies and solutions to the problem they are studying.
