We assume that the preparation of a diploma / master's thesis at our institute can count on around 70 person-days (page volume of the diploma / master thesis: approx. 60-80 pages). This means that as the author of this work, you will be a "virtual member" of our team. We offer intensive support and cooperation, but at the same time demand an extremely high level of commitment from the author in her or his scientific work.
For capacity reasons, only students who have successfully completed either the HRCM specialization or the HRCM specialization in the bachelor's program or relevant master's courses offered by the institute can be looked after. In addition, the grade point average of the completed courses is taken into account.
While the diploma thesis can be written in English or German, the Master's thesis has to be written in English.
For all diploma / master theses, a 10-page Research Proposal has to be prepared in advance. The Research Proposal is the central decision criterion for taking on a caring commitment and comprises the following components:
Submissions of research proposals are possible on an ongoing basis.
We kindly ask you to submit your research proposal electronically to your preferred supervisor and to firstname.lastname@example.org.
