Bachelor and Master Theses

The application deadline for Bachelor and Master Theses during the summer semester 2022 is July 15, 2022. The following list provides an overview of possible topics (in German) that we offer. Beyond this, you can make own suggestions.

  1. Locked-in: Ein Review verschiedener Faktoren zum Ausstieg aus bestehenden Technologien
  2. The ecosystem challenge: Auf- und Umbau bestehender Ökosysteme
  3. Die Wachstumskommunikation von Unternehmen im IT- Sektor

  6. Wettbewerbsstrategie und Kapitalallokation in schrumpfenden Märkten (in cooperation with Strategy&)

Should you be interested in one of the topics or should you have an idea for a topic that relates to the work of the group, please send your application including a brief letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, transcript of records, and certificates (if available). Please send your documents as one PDF file via email to Dr. Josua Oll (josua.oll@uol.de). We will screen the applications directly after the application deadline and will let you know if we can supervise your thesis. In case you propose your own topic, we will also inform you about the fit with our research focus.

The theses are written in close collaboration with the supervisor. At the beginning of the process, students can develop an exposé, which outlines the general content and structure of the work and includes a rough timeline. Moreover, students will present the preliminary and final results during the Bachelor and Master colloquium and discuss them with their fellow students.

Please refer to the document Process and Guidelines for Bachelor's and Master's Theses (in German) for detailed information on the application process and the processing of theses.

In writing the thesis, students gain the opportunity to make contributions to debates of large societal importance. We are looking for highly motivated students with a strong interest in sustainability-related topics and very good knowledge of management theories. Strong communication and project management skills as well as experience in qualitative and quantitative data analysis are additional assets.
