Key qualifications

Bachelor / Master Theses

If you are interested in writing your thesis under the supervision of the Public Economics Group, please send an email to Prof. Friehe containing the following information:

  1. a current transcript of records,
  2. the subject area and methodology you would like to choose for your thesis, and
  3. the point in time at which you would like to receive your topic and at which your working time starts.

The subject area of your thesis should be related to either the lectures offered by the team or the research areas of the Group. For example, we would be interested in supervising theses on 

  • Image Concerns
  • Product Safety
  • Social Norms
  • Tax Competition
  • Present Bias and Self-Control

We expect that you work with the related literature to answer a concise research question you formulated for your thesis. Ideas about own modeling or data analysis are welcome but not at all necessary. We may supervise theses with a focus on either theory or empirics. Former students wrote their thesis, for example, on:

  • Corruption
  • Detection Avoidance
  • Principal-Agent Relationship in the Litigation Context
  • Prospect Theory
  • Tax Morale
  • Overconfidence of Managers

Please pay also attention to our guidelines: "Richtlinien für Seminar- und Abschlussarbeiten an der AG Finanzwissenschaft".

Key Qualification Credits

Both Bachelor and Master students can obtain key qualification credit points by contributing to the research conducted by the Public Economics Group.

Your contribution may include searching information, finding and evaluating papers of the related literature, and collecting and preparing data. 

If you are interested in contributing to the research of the group, please send an email to Prof. Friehe containing a current transcript of records.
