The bachelor thesis deals with current practical-oriented and research-related issues of public management.

Students should demonstrate that they can deal with a specific problem with scientific methods within a given period. Because the bachelor degree is the first academic degree qualifying for a profession, a bachelor thesis’ specific qualification objectives are

  • the systematic application of learned scientific methodologies to a practice-relevant problem
  • the presentation of the current state of research and its relevance to the practical problem
  • the preparation of an empirical study if applicable (for instance, in the form of a representative survey)
  • a conclusion stemming from the evaluation of the students’ results and identification of further research questions."
