Writing a Master Thesis

If you would like to write your Master’s thesis at the Chair of Human Resource Management, you must have successfully completed at least 15 ECTS from the Chair’s teaching program.

If you have acquired more ECTS at the chair, only the average grade from your 15 best ECTS counts for the further admission requirements below.

The chair makes a maximum of 12 places available each semester, which is just under four times the calculated average capacity of all chairs in the faculty. If more than 12 candidates apply for a master’s thesis in one semester, the 12 people with the best average grades will receive the available places.

If you wish to apply, please do so by registering in the Moodle course “HRM-MASTERARBEITEN XXXX” which is created for each semester. The XXXX stands for the semester designation in question. There are always 2 courses offered for the respective two subsequent semesters, so please make sure you register in the course set up for your desired semester.

To apply for the winter semester, you must be registered in the appropriate course by July 31 of each year, and to apply for the summer semester, you must be registered by January 31 of each year.

On these dates, you will also have to submit proof of the work you have done at the department. You will receive an acceptance or rejection within 14 days after the application deadlines.

These deadlines are cut-off dates. Subsequent registration or submission of proof of performance is not possible for the deadline in question.

Writing a Bachelor Thesis

The central application procedure of the faculty distinguishes between two possible types of supervision commitments for bachelor theses. On the one hand, each chair can assign a certain contingent of Bachelor theses on its own responsibility. On the other hand, a central allocation procedure is carried out by means of previously indicated priorities.

If you would like to write your bachelor thesis at our chair and receive a pre-commitment from us, please refer to the associated Moodle course. The end of the application period is communicated each semester via the chair’s website as well as in the Moodle course. According to experience, the application in the WiWi-Bos is released for the summer semester in March and for the winter semester in September.

In addition to filling out the application form, you must also register in WiWi-BOS and indicate our chair as your first priority.

Subsequently, we might give you a confirmation and contact you.

As a rule, we will specify the topics. No further action is required on your part until the topic is assigned. After you have been assigned a topic, please contact your supervisor.

From topic assignment, the processing time of 9 weeks starts. The oral examination is usually held within 5 weeks after submission. For details on the oral examination, please refer to the guidelines for the preparation of scientific papers.
