Topics for supervision

Master theses

I welcome proposals to supervise Master’s and Bachelor’s theses in financial accounting, financial analysis, company valuation, corporate finance, and behavioral finance. I only supervise theses written in English that have a clear ambition to be graded A (“1 Výborně”). Before agreeing to supervise a thesis I ask students to prepare a 5-page long thesis proposal that discusses the research question and specifies and motivates the hypotheses. Download below a document containing recommendations about how to write a good proposal. In addition, find below several files (templates) that could help you in your work.
