A bachelor’s thesis is an independent thesis that recapitulates and broadens the knowledge, skills and abilities gained during studies, and validates the awarded bachelor’s degree in finance. In terms of the content and methods of analysis, the bachelor’s thesis directly and indirectly incorporates the subject matter of various disciplines into a single whole.
Bachelor thesis should address relevant financial problems of organizations, or problems of financial markets and institutions. If bachelor thesis analyses the problem of a specific organization, it must coincide with the internship place. Exemptions may be allowed if:
- The internship place is at a financial institution or consulting company (such as auditing or accounting company, market research company, etc.), and the student analyses a client company, or addresses a problem which is relevant to company’s clients. This situation must be clearly described in the bachelor thesis, explaining why the company under analysis does not coincide with the internship place.
- The internship was completed earlier (not during the same study semester when final bachelor thesis is being prepared) and it is not possible to collect data from that company (the connection between the company and the student was lost, company declared bankruptcy or changed its business area).
The bachelor’s thesis is written in the seventh semester of studies; 15 ECTS credits are allocated to the thesis. The thesis must be written in English.
