Master thesis supervison with Prof. Fabel

For a fair and transparent allocation of thesis supervision spots Prof. Fabel has the following rules for deciding which theses to supervise:


There are exactly 10 thesis supervision spots available at any point in time. These spots will be allocated on 2 fixed dates (18.9.20 and 15.1.21 in the fall/winter term). It is strongly recommended that students discuss their topic project idea in an office hour before entering into the final registration procedure! To apply for a free spot students have to submit a 3-5 page thesis proposal. The number of available supervision slots determines the maximum number of students that can be accepted for supervision from within the submitted thesis proposals.


The thesis proposal needs to elaborate on the following points

  •  the precise research question addressed by the thesis
  •  methods
  •  applicants prior knowledge regarding the research question
  •  a preliminary list of references
  •  (if applicable) information about possible access to data, business contacts, etc…
  •  risks that could lead to the failure of the project, and how those will be dealt with.


Proposals (.pdf or doc files) should be sent to opim.bda@univie.ac.at by the dates indicated above.
Accepted proposals will be registered at the SSC with an acceptance of supervision form (Anmeldung der Masterarbeit  - Thema und Betreuung). The acceptance of supervision is valid for 18 months, whereafter the commitment to supervision will be revoked, no further supervision will be provided and the spot is freed up for other applicants.

GENERAL REQUIREMENT

Before you apply for a topic, you have to complete at least one of the following courses:

  • Theory of the international Firm

  • International Market Entry
  • Organization and Human Resources in International Firms


Rules for Scientific Writing
Since you are in the process of submitting the final version of the master thesis, please remember to  submit a final version that consistently applies the formal rules of writing a research paper. Very often we receive a final study that has not consistently applied the rules of writing a research paper. Here are two references for preparing the thesis:

  • Karmasin, M., R. Rainer, Die Gestaltung wissenschaftlicher Arbeiten, , 2015, UTB Facultas
  • Skern, T., Writing Scientific English, 2015, UTB Facultas


IMPORTANT:
If Prof. Windsperger receives a final version without consistent application of the scientific paper writing rules, he will evaluate your thesis by one GRADE WORSE!
