Writing a Master's Thesis Proposal: IB-Supply Chain Management
Full course descriptionIn several sessions, students are guided towards a thesis proposal that offers a solid base to enter the thesis process. Finding a topic, formulating an interesting and workable problem statement, imposing a structure by formulating sub questions, reporting on a first scan of the literature, and finally developing initial research ideas are all covered in these sessions. The skills training is concluded by a session in which all participants give a presentation of their thesis proposal, receiving critical feedback from other students and the tutor.
