Omschrijving The bachelor thesis IE&B is the final course of the track International Economics & Business of the bachelor Economics and Business Economics. In this course, you will do independent research on a research question of academic relevance, building on the knowledge and skills you have acquired in the rest of the program. You will do your research within a pre-defined research theme, under the supervision of an expert faculty member. In each research theme you will be joined by a number of fellow students and regular research workshops will give you the opportunity to learn from and comment on their research. Your thesis will aim to provide a quantitative, statistical answer to your research question, requiring a discussion of the relevant theoretical and empirical literature and applying the research methods, that you trained in using in earlier courses, to a dataset. The research themes on offer include those that are more related to the area of international business and require firm-level analysis and economics-related themes, requiring the use of industry or country-level data.
