We strongly prefer theses with empirical character. We acknowledge, however, that writing an empirical thesis requires some familiarity with basic econometric methods on the one hand and some type of spreadsheet application (e.g. Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc) on the other. To allow you to check your level of knowledge in these areas, we have prepared a brief test, which is available from Marina Kononova upon request.
Note: Generally, we recommend STATA, Eviews or SPSS for statistical analysis. However, most of the analyses (at least for BSc theses) may also be done in Excel (see for instance the book by Cynthia Fraser "Business Statistics for Competitive Advantage with Excel 2010" published by Springer - available as electronic ressource here)
An introduction to formatting of english language theses can be found here.
Note: For theses written in German it is pointed out that generally gender-equitable language is to be used. For further details see the link.
