BA/MA Theses: Writing for Impact

Enrich you studies with IMPACT! By writing a B.A./M.A. thesis on an environmental and/or social sustainability related topic, you will not only expand your awareness and knowledge but will also meaningfully contribute to wider research community. Affiliated STaR Faculty as well as the members of STaR Intellectual Community all work on sustainability and responsibility related projects. To further help you in deciding on your thesis topic, we have compiled a list of faculty members and their research areas, from over 50 WU’s Institutes. As you probably already know, at WU Vienna, you can write your thesis at any Department/Institute. You will see that there is a great many possibilities!

Before you take a look at the list, please note that:

  • The list is not exhaustive, and information provided in it is subject to change. For newest updates, please refer to individual Institutes’ homepages.

  • The list is for informational purposes only. STaR team is not responsible for changes in the content of individual Institutes’ websites.

  • Supervision requirements vary greatly among Departments and Institutes. STaR does not provide information on how to submit a thesis’ proposal. Please visit Institutes’ websites or contact potential supervisors. 

  • Generally, at WU, theses can be written in German or English. Writing in another language may also be an option at the Department of Foreign Language Business Communication. Please inquire with your potential supervisor.

  • STaR Competence Center does not directly engage in theses supervision.


You may also find inspiration by browsing the WU Theses Catalogue. It allows searching for already completed Master’s and PhD level theses by topic, keyword, and author’s name.

Finally, we are doing our best in keeping the information on this site up to date: we would be thankful if you inform us of any inconsistencies or changes (email star@wu.ac.at).
