The potential of master’s theses for companies

In their master’s thesis, the worker participates in carrying out a planning, development or research project for the company. The central goal of the project is to solve a relevant problem in the field by making use of current scientific knowledge and good research methods. Through master’s theses, companies receive the help of practically orientated students for whom the scientific perspective is still freshly available in their memory. Commissioning a master’s thesis is a low risk opportunity for a company to build a relationship with potential future employees, and also allows both the company and thesis worker to assess the other’s suitability for future work.
