The topic of your thesis must be confirmed by your supervisor in the Student Information System one year before the thesis defense. So if you want to defend your thesis at the end of the Summer Semester 2018/2019, your deadline is June 15, 2018. Use the "Thesis (Selection of subject)" module in SIS to assign to your topic. You can choose from a list of offered topics in SIS or come up with your own topic. In any case, you must find a suitable advisor. If your topic is not on the list, ask your supervisor to publish it. We recommend you choose a narrowly defined empirical topic. You can have one more month to submit the detailed thesis proposal (following the template and the example available on the website of JEM001 in SIS) if you agree on this with your supervisor ex-ante. You must send the proposal, approved by your supervisor, to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org by e-mail till July 15, 2018.
