Topics for Master Theses are assigned twice a year on pre-determined and fixed dates. The master's theses consider topics from various fields of study in the area “Finance”. Topics for theses are usually assigned in coordination with the chairs of Prof. Maug, Prof. Niessen-Ruenzi, Prof. Ruenzi and Prof. Theissen. Students may submit one priority list to apply at all five chairs.
To be eligible to write a Master Thesis at Dr. Wimmer's chair, you need to have completed a seminar in the Area Finance (Prof. Albrecht, Prof. Maug, Prof. Niessen-Ruenzi, Prof. Ruenzi, Prof. Terberger, Prof. Theissen or PD Dr. Maximilian Wimmer).
If you want to write a Master Thesis with one of the above-listed professors, you need to apply for the assignment of a topic by the due date. For your list of priorities you may choose from all the topics provided by the professors. Please state your actual preferences regardless of your grade to get the most out of your choices. The assignment of the topics is based solely on the seminar grade. If there is a topic you do not want to work on at all, make sure to not include it in your priority list. It is not possible to change the assigned topics after the assignment procedure has been completed.
