Master Thesis

We supervise Master theses related to ongoing work at the chair. Topics may be of empirical or theoretical nature and include

  • Macroeconomics
  • Monetary economics
  • Fiscal policy
  • Open economy macroeconomics
  • Labor economics (with Prof. Manger)

In order to find a suitable topic, you should have successsfully attended courses (and/or the master seminar) that are offered by the chair. In this way, you can make sure that you are already familiar with theoretical models and empirical methods that are helpful in successfully writing a Master thesis at our chair.


The School of Business and Economics runs a common mechanism for Master thesis registration aiming at good matches in line with student preferences. If you want to write your master thesis with us in the coming semester, please fill out the following short survey on Ilias provided by the student dean's office and state our chair as your first preference. The survey asks about which modules you have already taken, your grades and the work unit (i.e. chair) you would like to be supervised by. Based on this survey, students will be distributed to the work units (chairs).

Filling out the survey takes about 5 minutes. Please be careful because you cannot change your answers once you have provided them. You will also need to upload your transcript of your Bachelor's degree as well as your current transcript (even if it is blank). Note that you need to have earned a minimum of 30 ECTS in your MSc. degree in order to register for the Master thesis. All information will be treated confidentially. The deadline for filling out this survey is Tuesday, July 30, 2019. Please be aware that we can only supervise your thesis if you have successfully participated in the survey. After the survey has been closed, we will review your application, see if we can supervise your Master thesis and get back to you in due course.

Further information regarding formal guidelines and the content of the Master thesis can be found here.

Please also check the guidelines (Prüfungsordnung) provided by the examination office with respect to formal requirements and registration of the Master thesis. There you can also find information regarding the timeline for the work on your thesis.
