Master thesis (practical)

Hi guys,

I study Business Administration major in Marketing in Bern, and I am looking for a company to write my thesis with them. but I haven't been able to convince one of them. I prefer to do my thesis in a practical way which also is an experience for me. It means a lot to me if you could help me out

Thanks

What kind of ground leg work have you already done in order to attract somebody to work with? What kind of help do expect us to do?

Re: Master thesis (practical)

I have contacted with some companies that I thought they might be interested but they said that we don't do this kind of collaborations easily. I even contacted some HR managers in LinkedIn and they also were not very interested in my idea. but I talked to one of them and she said that I need someone inside the company that could introduce me to do so. but as I don't have many swiss connections I thought you guys could help me out

Re: Master thesis (practical)

Can't the university help you? Or friends from university who have already written their thesis at companies in Bern?

Re: Master thesis (practical)

Good- problem is, it takes a lot of time and energy to support a student through PHD- and if you are not fluent it takes even longer and limits who can support you. What can you offer a company in return. Perhaps you could explain a bit more about your subject and approach to see if anyone here might be interested in at least discussing this. (I can't help at all I'm afraid, I am a retired teacher). Good luck.

Re: Master thesis (practical)

Career service of University is the worst!! they don't do job placements or anything else!
and my classmates are more traditional, they tend to write by themselves not to practice with a company.

Re: Master thesis (practical)

Try checking out different meet-ups for start-ups. They take place regularly (but the bigger ones are in ZH) and most newer start-ups are happy for a helping hand, even if it is attached to a thesis.

Re: Master thesis topic suggestions

Why did you choose to study Business/Marketing? Choose an aspect that you are passionate about, write a super well-researched and documented thesis, and the job will follow

Re: Master thesis topic suggestions

I chose Marketing because I love it and I am highly passionate about it! But apparently as competition is pretty intensive, candidates should sell themselves to employer! I am competent in Luxuries, B2B, Online Marketing and Business strategies. But I am not sure which one to choose!!
