Obligatory intensive research period starts on Jan 11!

Dear 2nd year IB degree students,

The 3-week intensive research period, which is continuation of your Thesis-Part 1 course, starts on Monday, Jan 11. The sessions aim to start your thesis process by developing your research plans. In order to earn your 5 ECTS from Thesis-Part 1 course, you must deliver a research plan that will be approved by your supervisor during the 3rd week of this period.

Each student must attend sessions of one of the research lines (see schedules in the attached). Make your choice based on your interest for thesis and go to your first session next week!

If you target to attend the research line of “economics of internationalization and competitiveness”, note that it is now merged with the research line of “marketing management”. Hence, your first session will be on Monday, Jan 11, starting at 10:15 at classroom FK14.

We look forward to see you in our research line sessions!
