Course Syllabus

Abstract

Helping students acquire analytical, research and practical skills is an essential and integral part of the Master of International Business Program. Apart from having students develop the competencies necessary for their professional life, this seminar will facilitate the process of master thesis preparation and increase the quality of the master thesis. The Scientific and research seminar is the ultimate form of instruction for this kind of academic work. From the very beginning it is aimed at the master thesis preparation. The intermediary stage of thesis preparation takes form of the final course paper at the end of the first year of study. The course paper is a very important step in the preparation of a master thesis and usually represents a part of the thesis.
