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 team. 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 under supervision of our team.

Procedures

The School of Business and Economics runs a common mechanism for Master thesis registration aiming at good matches in line with student preferences. Therefore, the student dean's office provides a short survey at the end of each semester. The survey asks about which modules you have already taken, your grades and the work unit (i.e. team) you would like to be supervised by. Based on this survey, students will be distributed to the work units (teams). The next survey will take place at the end of winter semester 2019/2020 (for writing a Master thesis during summer semester 2020). Please be aware that we can only supervise your thesis if you have successfully participated in the survey.

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.
