Proposed Topics

You can choose one of the following topics for your Bachelor or Master thesis. You can also come up with own ideas if they fit into the areas of research and teaching of our chair. Feel free to contact us.

The indication "empirical" or "theoretical" is referred to the applied methodology of the starting literature. Empirical papers present the results of data analyses; theoretical papers present mathematical-analytical models. In a Bachelor thesis, you do not have to conduct own empirical or analytical analyses.
