Chair of Entrepreneurship

Bachelor Theses

Application and assignment are done via the department's regular process via KIS.

1. Application and Process

  • The application for bachelor theses of the department usually takes place in the last week before the start of lectures. Please inform yourself on the pages of the department:
  • At the beginning of the lecture period you will receive the acceptance or rejection.
  • Within the first two weeks of the semester, there is a joint kick-off meeting for admitted students, which provides the basics for the work and clarifies questions.
  • During the kick-off there will also be a selection of topics that will be divided among the students. The topics are basically within the research focus of the chair.
  • The duration of the project and the deadline are determined by the examination regulations and the registration date - as a rule, the processing time is at least 2-3 months.

2. General Conditions

  • Theses at the chair have to be written in English language
  • Systematic literature reviews are regularly assigned as theses
  • Theses in conjunction with practice partners are not possible for Bachelor theses due to the very short processing period.
  • There is a predefined number of topics, which is divided among the admitted students. A topic can only be worked on by one person at a time.

3. Final Presentations

All students present the results of their work in a colloquium towards the end of the semester.

4. Submission

Within or on time at the end of the official processing period, each student will hand in the following material:

  • By e-mail: Send the final paper as PDF and DOC(X) in advance to supervisor.
  • Two hardcopy / physical copies of the final paper
  • One of the hardcopy copies must have a CD-ROM or USB stick with the following contents:
    • All Excel, SPSS, Stata, Atlas.ti, or other raw data and other data used as the basis for calculations referenced in the final paper
    • All documents taken from the Internet (esp. web pages) in PDF format.
