Bachelor Thesis in Economics 15 Credits

Course Contents

The course consists of writing a bachelor thesis. The course includes coaching seminars with the supervisor, but is based on independent work. At the end of the course all students must present and defend their thesis at a public seminar, act as main opponent at another student's seminar, and actively take part in three other final seminars. Even though the thesis is written in pairs the grading of the presentation and opposition is done individually. The purpose of this course is as follows:
  • To train and develop the ability of students to independently analyze various economic problems by applying economic theory and scientific methods,
  • To develop, in particular, the analytical skills of students in a way that is valuable both for a scientific career and for a career in private enterprises, public administration, or international organizations.
  • To train and improve the stylistic ability of the students, the ability and skills of students to search and to evaluate information, and the ability of students to critically and constructively review the analyses of other students.

Prerequisites

60 credits in economics including 7.5 credits at G2F level within the field of the thesis and 15 credits in statistics/econometrics (or the equivalent). The courses Microeconomics and Macroeconomics (or the equivalent) should be finished.
