Executive Master Thesis

An important part of the program is an Executive Master Thesis (EMT), which will provide participants with a deeper understanding of some aspects of management, as well as further analytical skills and critical thinking. The EMT builds on the knowledge gained in the modules but “stretches” and “deepens” it, not least through the requirement that participants collect and analyse data systematically. The thesis topics can be actual issues from group members’ companies, so that the thesis may provide both academic and practical value. The EMT work will start in the first semester with the choice of a thesis topic. During subsequent semesters participants are asked to hand in working papers and can seek comments by a tutor so that authors may learn how to improve the quality of participants’ work. The final EMT paper will be defended in front of external examiners at the end of the last semester.
