Upon completion of the thesis students can choose and apply appropriate research methods to produce new knowledge and to apply that knowledge to typical business decision-making problems. Students are able to conduct scientific research and make reasonable recommendations for solving business and economic problems. Furthermore, students demonstrate deep and coherent understanding of an academic field of study within their own major. They are able to demonstrate knowledge of the theories, concepts, frameworks and empirical findings of their discipline and understand the connections between various theories in the chosen discipline.

Students will demonstrate deep understanding of their own profession, and are able to use, process and analyze economic and/or business information. Students understand various business processes and operations, and causal connections between them. Finally, students are able to express their ideas effectively and analytically, both in oral and written form.
