Bachelor Thesis

The Chair of Supply Chain Management offers three types of Bachelor Thesis topics:

  1. Literature Review: Summarizing, structuring and critically reviewing the existing literature on a certain topic.
  2. Exploratory Research: Analyzing a current real-life topic by using academic literature, information on the internet, and possibly interviews.
  3. Quantitative Analysis: Spreadsheet modeling and quantitative analysis of a given managerial decision problem.

After being assigned to the Chair of Supply Chain Management, students may indicate up to three preferred choices from a list of topics. We try to match these preferences when assigning the topics to the students.

The thesis may be written in English or German.
