Recommendations for Master Thesis Proposals

  • In order to prepare a master thesis it is highly recommended to attend relevant advanced courses and/or seminars prior to applying for supervision. Seminars are usually offered on topical issues alternating between the areas of banking/financial institutions and asset pricing/market microstructure. Participation in advanced courses, however, is neither a guarantee nor a requirement for acceptance of a particular thesis proposal. The proposal itself should consist of the research question and the methodological approach envisioned to produce answers. For empirical work some prior acquaintance with the data intended for analysis is recommended. The faculty offers access to a wide range of data about asset prices, accounting and management data, macroeconomic statistics and market microstructure data (LOBSTER). Check Vienna Data Center - VDC for availability and data support.
