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.
