General Information

The purpose of a thesis is to demonstrate your ability to apply economic concepts, i.e., using mathematical models. First, you have to outline the economic problem and the state of the literature. From this point, you can proceed in three ways: You discuss and criticize the models found in the literature, you modify a given model adequately, or you create your own (simple) model so as to address an aspect of the problem that has been neglected in the literature. In any case, the usage of economic models is inevitable. Empirical work that sustains or refutes the theoretical results is always welcome.

If you want to write your thesis on a topic in "Economics of Business and Law", these topics may come from two areas: Law and Economics on the one hand, Business Economics on the other hand. Please note that successful participation in an appropriate seminar or course (either in "Law and Economics" or in "Business Economics)" is a prerequisite.

Please provide the following information if you intend to apply directly at the chair (by e-mail; obey the official deadlines; incomplete applications will not be processed):
