Course description

Bachelor Thesis is an independent work that summarizes the knowledge, abilities and skills acquired during studies and justifies the awarded bachelor's qualification in business management. In terms of content and analysis methods, the final work of bachelor's studies directly and indirectly combines the object of various disciplines into a single whole.

In the bachelor's final thesis, it is appropriate to study the current macroeconomic, microeconomic and problems of financial markets and institutions. After choosing to examine the relevant economic problems of the company, it is recommended to carry out an economic evaluation of the company's activities, justify production or investment decisions, it is appropriate to solve the optimization problems of the company's activities, take into account microeconomic and macroeconomic circumstances, etc.

It is recommended that the company or organization whose problem is addressed in the bachelor's thesis coincide with the place of internship. The organization in which the practice is carried out and the organization examined in the final bachelor's thesis do not necessarily have to coincide in the following cases:

a) the student performs an internship in a financial institution, state institution, consulting company (ministry, association, bank, insurance company or other financial institution, real estate agency, audit company, economic research company, etc.) and analyzes the activities of the clients of this institution or company or chooses a problem for the solution of which the data collected during practice are relevant. This situation must be clearly described in the bachelor's thesis, explaining the reasons for the discrepancy between the place of practice and the company whose problem is being addressed.

b) the student completed the internship earlier (not in the same study semester as the bachelor's final thesis) and can no longer collect data in the same place (the company went bankrupt, changed the field of activity, the relationship between the student and the company ended). In this case, a certificate is submitted from another company whose problem is solved in the bachelor's thesis, that the company is aware of and agrees to the collection of data about it and the writing of the bachelor's thesis.

c) the profile of the company's activities does not correspond to the problematic topic under consideration.

The bachelor's final thesis is prepared in the eighth semester of studies, and 15 ECTS credits are allocated to it. The work can be written in Lithuanian or English.
