Omschrijving The master thesis is the final element of the MSc programme in International Business and Management. The thesis should reflect an original (but manageable) piece of research, which is conducted according to scientific standards and focused on knowledge creation. It should be based on existing theoretical insights as well as a piece of new empirical research. The empirical research may either be based on a case study, a database or existing survey. The central task of the thesis project is that students themselves are responsible for selecting the research topic and for setting up their research programme. Supervisors have a coaching and reflective role. Students should propose a topic (or shortlist of possible topics) or a managerial problem within the IB&M subject area during the course Research Methodology for IB&M.. In consultation with the thesis coordinator, a staff member is asked to supervise the thesis.
