Application for a bachelor thesis
The Faculty of Economics organizes the allocation of Bachelor and Master thesis via a central web-based registration procedure.
The departments 'Management', 'Taxation, Accounting, Finance', 'Economics' and 'Business and Human Resource Education' participate in this process.
The aim of this registration procedure is to distribute the thesis that are scheduled for the semester evenly and with regard to the capacity of supporting personnel to the individual chairs in the participating departments.Simultaneously the preferences of the students regarding the focus are considered.
This system does not replace the official exam registration, but serves initially to allocate the thesis within the four participating departments.
The assignment of the students to their supporting person from the chair takes about 1 - 1 ½ months. After that, they will be informed by mail about the acceptance and the contact partner. The registration for the thesis in the summer semester 2019 is possible from 14 january to 25 january 2019 on the these page.
If you have any organizational questions about the central registration procedure you can contact abschlussarbeiten(at)wiwi.upb(dot)de.
If you do not want to use the received commitment, you should immediately give notice of your departure to the corresponding chair.

After receiving a commitment, a first conversation with the supporting person of the respective chair takes place.
At the first appointment it is necessary to bring along the registration form of the examination office. The registration form has to be collected in person from the examination secretariat or has to be printed in PAUL.
The thesis will be immediately registered by the respective chair after the allocation of the topic is done.
