The final theses are allocated via WueCampus2.
At our chair, you write your thesis on various topics in the field of Corporate Finance and related areas.
If you have applied for a thesis, an initial interview will take place about 2 weeks before the desired start of the project in order to find a concrete topic. Your own topic suggestions can be considered here. Once the topic has been definitely determined, the final thesis must be registered within 2 weeks.
