Supervision of Theses

Prof. Klonner supervises Bachelor and Master Theses in the field of development economics, preferably relating to microeconomic issues (Prof. Axel Dreher specializes in macroeconomic issues of developing countries, Prof. Switgard Feuerstein in international trade). Your are encouraged to identify the thesis topic yourself; see these guidelines. At times, the Department also offers specific topics for theses, which are usually data-intensive. After developing some initial ideas and processing the basic literature relevant for that topic, please schedule an appointment with Prof. Klonner.

Once you turn in the thesis at the Prüfungsamt, please also email a pdf-copy to Stefan Klonner.
