Su­per­vi­sion of theses and dis­ser­ta­tions

Bach­elor and Mas­ter Theses

Cur­rently our in­sti­tute of­fers the su­per­vi­sion of bach­elor theses on spe­cific top­ics only for gradu­ates of our Sus­tain­able Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness II courses. The su­per­vi­sion is or­gan­ized in peer groups. This ap­proach gives stu­dents the op­por­tun­ity to ex­change ideas and to learn from each other while provid­ing in­tens­ive su­per­vi­sion.

For fur­ther in­form­a­tion please refer to the Syl­labi or at­tend the Kick­-Off events of our ZuWi II courses. Our su­per­vi­sion ca­pa­city is cur­rently ex­hausted until sum­mer 2018. The next possible entry is likely to be with the “Sus­tain­able Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness II” courses in sum­mer term 2018.

Due to lim­ited su­per­vi­sion ca­pa­city the In­sti­tute for Man­aging Sus­tain­ab­il­ity of­fers no su­per­vi­sion for mas­ter theses at the mo­ment.


Only dis­ser­ta­tions closely re­lated with our re­search pro­jects will be su­per­vised.
