Master's degree programme in Banking and Financial Management (01.10.2008)


Students prepare their exposé in the semester prior to the thesis writing Semester, hence an additional extracurricular module in the third semester was created, called “Preparatory Thesis Workshop”. The advantage of the new structure is that exposés are reviewed more objectively by the team of lecturers of the master’s degree programme and not just by two assigned tutors, as previously the case. During the third semester, students develop their exposé in a guided structure including a personal feedback by the team of lecturers.



The various stages and deadlines are such as follows:

* List of topics available on Moodle in October 2014
* Delivery "draft exposé": 25th January 2015 (via Moodle)
* Written feedback by assigned Tutors: by 14th February 2015
* Delivery "final exposé: 25th February 2015

Draft Exposé (2-3 pages) should include:

  • Topic
  • Research Question
  • Brief description of methodology
