The topics for final theses are basically oriented towards the research topics of the supervising employees of our chair and cover a broad spectrum of current problems in sustainability management. For bachelor theses we provide these topics, for master theses we can also suggest own topics, as long as they fit into the research topics of the chair's staff. Occasionally, specific master's theses are also advertised
For all students (Bachelor & Master) who have their theses supervised or are interested in doing so, participation in the Sustainability Research Seminar is mandatory. All theses must also comply with the guidelines for the preparation of scientific papers of the chair.

This form is only accessible during the official application period of the department in which the KIS applications also take place.
