Goals
The programme is completed by a Master Thesis Project in which you conduct an in-depth study of a supply chain related topic. It provides you with the opportunity to apply your knowlege and skills acquired during the programme to one specific supply chain problem.
Description
In several sessions, students are guided towards a thesis proposal that offers a solid base to enter the thesis process. Finding a topic, formulating an interesting and workable problem statement, imposing a structure by formulating sub questions, reporting on a first scan of the literature, and finally developing initial research ideas are all covered in these sessions. The skills training is concluded by a session in which all participants give a presentation of their thesis proposal, receiving critical feedback from other students and the tutor.
Literature
The literature will be announced later.
Prerequisites
Students who wish to start their thesis must have followed at least two courses.
