Application modalities for final theses at the Chair of Business Administration, especially Innovation Management

For the preparation of final theses in winter semester, the application must be submitted by 31.08. For the preparation of final theses in the summer semester, the application must be submitted by 28.02. The application period begins on the day of the information event. The order the applications are received within the deadline is not a selection criterion.

This deadline is a limitation period, that is, subsequent applications are not considered in principle. If you have any technical difficulties with the registration process, please contact the chair’s secretary office within the deadline mentioned above.

For the application please use our online-form which will be available during the application period. Please make sure to attach a current matriculation certificate and a current transcript of records at the end of the form.

You will be given a feedback within three weeks after the end of the application period. If you receive a commitment from the chair, we will register you for the bachelor/master seminar; a separate registration for this seminar on FlexNow is not required. The seminar has to be attended parallel to the preparation of your thesis.

The commitment for academic guidance is only valid for the current guidance period. If you allow your application offer to lapse, your application will automatically be placed on the last position of the application list in the subsequent guidance period.
