Bachelor's Degree in International Business
During studies preceding the thesis students will become conversant with the principles of research and development activity. Students who have accomplished studies prior to the thesis should possess the basic competence to carry out a university level thesis. Such competence includes skills in critical thinking, sufficient basic skills and knowledge concerning the main topic of the thesis and sufficient methodological and research skills. The nature of the task involved in the thesis will emphasise either research skills or knowledge and skills in development operations.
The thesis requires the ability to carry out systematic and long-term research or development work. It emphasises analysis, critical thinking (critique of sources, self-criticism), logical thinking and the ability to justify decisions, solutions and choices. In order to complete your thesis you will require the ability to search for and use existing knowledge and to evaluate your own work as well as good oral and written communication skills.
The thesis process progresses in stages. It is natural that the thesis topic is practical and concrete while its completion will require close collaboration with the world of work and useful results.
The aim of the thesis is to develop and provide a demonstration of students’ skills in applying knowledge and skills to practical expert tasks linked to their professional studies (Decree 1129/2014). In order to achieve this, the thesis authors must be able to recognise their own skills, their need to develop and as well as finding a topic suitable to a practical task requiring expertise in a specific field. The main feature of theses completed at universities of applied sciences is their connection with the practicalities of work and business.
