The bachelor thesis demonstrates that the student is able to work on a topic from the field of
of business administration or economics under supervision according to scientific methods
and to present and document the results appropriately in writing.

Extension due to illness

Students who need an extension of time to complete their
Bachelor's thesis need to be aware of the following:

  • An extension is only possible if the illness is proven with a
    medical certificate from an official doctor.
  • Exception: The illness can be made credible in another way
    (e.g. by a certificate of hospitalization). A simple medical
    medical certificate is not sufficient.
  • The examination board will examine each case of illness individually.
