The purpose of the thesis work is to give experience in independently and critically analysing different problems in economics using available scientific methods and the knowledge acquired in other courses, and in clearly structuring and formulating a presentation of the analytical results.
The instruction consists both of supervision with a planning seminar and a mid-course seminar, and a final series of seminars. Participation in these seminars is compulsory. Furthermore, there is a method seminar at the beginning of the thesis work and individual supervision.
The course is examined by writing a thesis to be discussed at a seminar with pre-assigned discussants. The course requires active participation in a number of compulsory seminars, the presentation of a thesis, discussion etc. The grades are fail (U), pass (G) and pass with distinction (VG).
To obtain the final grade, a re-written version must be submitted to the supervisor where the views presented at the final seminar have been taken into account.
Another requirement for obtaining a final grade is that each student must send his/her thesis by e-mail to the scrutinizing firm Urkund in order to remove all suspicions of plagiarism.
The reading list is missing. For further information, please contact the responsible department.
