Central Allocation of Master Theses - Finance
The Finance Area, represented by the participating chairs of Bank Management, Finance, Corporate Finance and Risk Management & Insurance, offers a wide range of Master thesis topics from the respective research and teaching areas of the chairs. Students who are interested in a Master's thesis at one of the chairs can apply for a Master's thesis centrally here. They are then assigned to a chair, taking into account their preferences and the capacities available at the chairs. After allocation to a chair, the concrete topic of the Master's thesis is agreed upon with the supervisor at the chair.
The central allocation of Master's theses in the Finance Area will take place for the first time for the winter term 2020/2021 with an application deadline on September 1, 2020.
In addition to the Finance Master students, students from the Master of International Management (CEMS MIM) can also apply. The same application procedures apply to these students.

To apply, you must submit the documents listed below. In the application form provided, it is essential that you indicate a complete list of your preferred topics and chairs (1= highest preference, 6=lowest preference).
