  • Students registered in the 1st year of the "Master spécialisé" - ECON 21 MS/G

On-line Consultation of the Thesis Topics (Instruction to access to the thesis application)

In December, the professor teaching in the various master programs of the ESL suggest a list of thesis topics.

This list is available on the website of the ESL. Once available, the students consult the topics and get in touch with the concerned professor and in order to receive more information on the suggested topics. If none of the suggested topics interest the student, (s)he can suggest a personal project to a professor working in the appropriate field. If the professor accepts to supervise the thesis, the student can add this personal topic to his selection (see next point).

Selection of 3 Thesis Topics

Each student after the consultation of the list and after having met the professor chooses through the online procedure the three topics that are closer to his/her preferences, listing them in order of preference. Please meet the professor before starting with the online procedure.
