Uitgebreide vaknaam Master's Thesis Research Master Economics & Business
Leerdoelen Students who finish their thesis successfully have proven to be able to deliver a piece of research that could reasonably be submitted to an international, peer-reviewed journal. This implies that they are able to:
- propose an original and relevant research question;
- identify and evaluate the relevant body of literature;
- choose an appropriate research method and defend its use;
- decide on the use of suitable data;
- interpret the empirical results in a sound and clear way;
- derive and present clear and to-the-point conclusions.
Omschrijving The master thesis is the final element of the Research Master programme. It should be a reflection of the student's acquired analytical skills in a knowledge area of the specialization chosen by the student. The thesis should represent the full research cycle, which implies that the student develops his own problem setting, specifies the research questions and hypotheses from a broader literature, develops his own methodology and organizes his or her own data collection (in case of empirical research).
Before the project starts, a student is assigned to a supervisor with ample experience in doing research meeting international standards.
