Master Theses Supervision

Please note these general rules:

Master theses must not (!) exceed 75 pages (double-spaced, Times New Roman font) including Abstract, References, Tables, and Figures, excluding Appendices. Appendices may contain supplementary material only, so that the thesis can be read and judged without perusing them.

As to the font, please apply Times New Roman, 11 point, double-spaced.


From October 2017, Professor Reitzig will assume the responsibility for supervising new Master thesis candidates, as his sabbatical will have finished. Please contact Prof. Reitzig if you are interested in writing a Master thesis at the Strategy Subject Area. Dr. Keck is currently not taking on new candidates.

Please find a list of potential topics here - to be updated by October 2017.
