Project Study (Projektphase)

We invite students to project studies ("Projektphase") with us. The "Projektphase" is a recently implemented innovative element of our MSc program, where (groups of) students work on individually assigned projects for about six month. It is jointly sponsored by the members of the Accounting and Finance Area at the School of Business and Economics in Marburg.

While in the standard setting the "Projektphase" is rather practice-oriented, we also offer the possibility of more research-oriented projects. Projects will be announced on a case by case basis. Please visit our homepage on a regular basis for updates on offered projects. Additionally, students are invited to propose interesting projects on their own. For more details please have a look here.
