General remarks concerning master/diploma theses: 

  • Hand-in of the thesis: In case the examination office provides you with the opportunity to hand-in the thesis digitally, we accept this procedure as well. Please make sure that you provide your supervisor with the relevant documents, which might not be part of the digital hand-in (e.g., STATA-files).
  • There are two application deadlines per year: 15th of September and 15th of March.
  • In each semester there will be an Empirical Accounting course aiming to introduce you to the empirical analysis of managerial accounting data. The course is not mandatory, but nevertheless will provide you with the prerequisites to conduct a sound empirical analysis of managerial accounting data as needed in your thesis. The respective dates of the course will be provided here soon.
  • In the week of October 15th (April 15th) you will be contacted by your thesis supervisor.
