Master Thesis


Prerequisite for writing a master thesis at the Chair of Information Systems 2 for MMM students is a seminar in the area IS. It is recommended to do the seminar at the Chair of Information Systems 2. Nevertheless, any one of the seminar modules IS 702, IS 712, IS 722, IS 732, IS 742 is accepted. Further, seminars from other areas of the Business faculty or Business Informatics faculty can be accepted on request. Business Informatics Master students are required to have at least 60 ECTS on their transcript. Additionally, we highly recommend having attended courses of the chair.

Contrary to other chairs at the Area IS, we do systems related research, hence, we built software systems. Therefore, programming is a must for Business Informatics students. Preferred programming languages are Java and C/C++. MMM students may implement, however, they are not obliged to do so.

In case of questions, please contact Martin Breitbach.


Taking up the issues of the chairs fields of research, all theses are assigned by the assistants of the chair. Currently, our staff is working on the following topics:

Kindly contact the researcher in charge of the research field you are interested in. Please add a current CV and transcript of records. In a then following meeting you may work out the topic of your thesis.

Please avoid to write various research assistants at the same time without notifying them. If several topic areas are relevant for you, either contact all relevant persons in one email simultaneously (using the CC function) or write the contact person indicated below. This helps to reduce overhead. 

Should you have general questions, please contact Martin Breitbach.
