In order the students to graduate the Programme and receive their Master in Business Administration, they must accomplish their Master Thesis. This thesis is a complete essay on a particular subject of Management, (approximately 15,000 – 20,000 words), assigned to 12 ECTS units.
Master Thesis will give the students the opportunity to deeply investigate a topic of their own preference and develop their research, analytical and writing skills. They will also be able to assess themselves in the application of theoretical principles on actual corporate issues.
At the beginning of the second semester, each academic tutor of the Programme announces 4-5 research proposals and at the end of the semester students are obliged, after consultation with the tutor(s), to prepare their research proposal regarding the topic of the Thesis. At this point they are assigned to a supervisor for its proper accomplishment, who is an academic tutor of the Programme.
During the third semester (full time) or fifth and sixth (part time), students must work on their Thesis by retrieving bibliographic resources, designing the Thesis’ structure, planning relevant questionnaires if necessary etc.
Every Master Thesis should contain a theoretical and a practical part, which should be well balanced between them in aspects of their framework and actual content.
