Writing Your Master’s Thesis in the IBSA Dual Degree Master’s Program
Full details for creating your thesis project
Finalize Your IBSA Academic Year with a Comprehensive Research Project.
Your third semester (between June and September) will consist entirely of the all-important thesis dissertation. This period is typically completed at the same university where you attended your specialization courses. To provide guidance and assistance as you prepare to work through this complicated project, each university offers a thorough, interactive three-day workshop that presents the requisite research skills, covering analytical, research and methodological techniques for the quality production of your master’s thesis. The other main source of support will come from your thesis advisors. Thus, all IBSA students are required to secure two supervisors who will guide the construction of the master’s thesis; normally, choosing two of your university lecturers is the best and easiest option. This final project will count for 16 ECTS in your overall program credit total. We also suggest that IBSA students also consider an alternative approach to the standard route: it is always possible to write your master’s thesis in cooperation with a company. This will require identifying and contacting a potential target company and developing a customized agreement with them in order to complete your thesis project accordingly.
By completing this detailed research and writing work, you will delve deeper into your specialization area from the second semester, learn to cultivate critical reasoning skills, develop a scientific approach to empirical data, and develop skills in literature review based on investigative reasoning (examination of a hypothesis).
To enable students to cultivate their critical reasoning skills and to consolidate their analytical skills.
