Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the seminar is to introduce students to writing research texts in preparation for their diploma thesis. A list of topics (international negotiations and HR measurement) will be provided. Students can choose their own topic; however, it has to be approved.

Assessment and permitted materials

Participants will be assessed based on the bachelor thesis, its presentation, and in-class participation.

The bachelor thesis has to meet scientific standards and is preparing students for writing a diploma thesis. In their bachelor thesis, the participants should demonstrate a profound knowledge of the adressed topic. Based on a thorough literature review, students not only summarize their findings, but also develop an own perspective on a particular topic.

The bachelor thesis has to be presented in class. The presentation has to cover (a) a description of the problem and the specific research question, (b) a summary & the highlights of the review of relevant literature, and (c) a discussion of findings & possible future research questions.

The course is designed to be interactive. Therefore, class attendance is required.
