Degree Project

The Master's thesis requires 30 ECTS. The thesis process often combines the student's own plans with the development needs of the employer within the field of organization and leadership.

The Master's thesis is carried out in the student's organisation, applying the general scientific method or sometimes more case-specific action-based research. In the Master's thesis the student completes their own research project, thus enhancing their mastery of modern business theories.

Additionally, alternatives to a thesis can be, for example:

  • reports (e.g. investigations, surveys, analyses and/or evaluations)
  • development work (e.g. development of working methods or activities)
  • product development (e.g. a prototype or a model)
  • a plan, a product or an artistic work (e.g. an event, a collection, an artistic production, a course, design of material such as guides/manuals or handbooks)
  • a portfolio

Constructing a thesis subject and the potential collaboration with an organisation is at the responsibility of the student.
