We are providing supervision for bachelor and master theses in the field of entrepreneurship, innovations and entrepreneurial dynamics. The studies can be divided into three main groups:

a) empirical studies based on secondary data or primary data,

b) theoretical work based on formal models, and

c) quantitative literature or meta-studies.

We are receptive to suggestions for topics that offer a link to the research focus of the Jackstadt Center. If you are interested in writing your thesis at the Jackstadt Centre, please contact the UNESCO Chair of Entrepreneurship and Intercultural Management of Prof. Dr. Christine Volkmann or the Chair of Industrial Economics and Innovation of Prof. Dr. Werner Bönte.
