Master Theses Inside the Venture

Master Theses Inside the Venture

Following the usual academic track, you write a scientific seminar paper and master thesis at our chair. Next to this option, you can also write your thesis in a Startup and help the business grow. This can be e.g. a fully-developed business plan or a dedicated analysis of the business model. Get creative, establish contact to a Startup or Spin-Off and develop a proposal on your possible work and contribution. Please note that if you choose a more practicallly-oriented thesis however, you will have to reveal your academic skills in an about 20 pages theoretical task that complements your thesis.

You have our fullest support while writing your thesis in a Venture. Please make sure that you fulfill the master thesis criteria at the Chair of Small and Medium Sized Companies and Entrepreneurship.

Of course, bachelor students are also granted the option to work with a Startup in the context of their thesis. However, time, scope and format of bachelor theses impose some limitations.

We will post vacancies/ pre-defined projects in this section @MCEI. What is more, you can network and find and define your own project. Please contact us, if you have further questions or need advice on your ideas.
