Topics involving taxation and accounting make up large parts of the reporting in the financial press. Taxes are also highly relevant in the political discussion. Our courses enable students to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue impactful careers in the area of taxation. Students who do not seek a career in taxation can also benefit by forming a holistic understanding of the business world.

Application Master Thesis

The School of Business and Economics asks every student who plans to start on their master thesis in the next semester to fill out a short survey listing the modules they have already taken, their grades and the work unit (Lehrstuhl) they would like to be supervised by. Students who already have a supervisor are asked to fill out the survey and state in the additional comments that they already have been accepted by a staff member. The link to the survey is provided via mail. The survey is conducted via Ilias.

At the end of the survey, you will be asked to list the work groups you would like to be supervised by, you need to provide 5 different priorities here to make sure your application is valid.

Regardless of the survey by the School of Business and Economics, please feel free to contact our Chair at any time if you are interested in writing your master thesis in the area of taxation.

To write your Master Thesis at the chair

  1. You have been assigned to our chair for the master thesis (see above).
  2. Please register at the Examination Office with this form (Formular). The Examinations Office verifies your admission requirements (regular matriculation, required minimum number of credits). After your admission requirements are verified, you will receive an approval document signed by the head of the examination board. The handling time for the process at the Examinations Office is approximately one or two weeks. After having received the approval document by the Examinations Office, you have one month to start writing your thesis (please pay attention to the dates on the approval document).
  3. Please contact the chair again once you have received the approval document. Students can make 2-3 proposals for topics and then the exact topic will be determined by the chair. It is not mandatory to make proposals since students can also ask the chair if a suitable topic for their thesis is available. The approval document will be completed at the chair with the topic of the Master Thesis and signed. From this day on, you know your exact topic and you have 18 weeks to complete your Master Thesis. Please note that the starting date has to be within the period that you applied for. If you miss the deadline, the acceptance by the chair expires.
  4. The chair will send the filled out and signed approval document back to the Examinations Office. They will receive the information and will oversee the deadline.
