Erasmus Thesis Project 2022
Are you a bachelor-3 student writing your thesis at Erasmus School of Economics? Join the Erasmus Thesis Project 2022 (ETP) and get help with writing your thesis! In addition, you can hand in your thesis in the end and win up to €250!
What is ETP?
The goal of ETP is to provide additional guidance to bachelor students who are going to write their bachelor thesis at Erasmus School of Economics. To do so, we will organize several workshops/events for you, so that you can get the most out of your thesis:
We will kick off the project on the 12th of May! Dr. Benoit Crutzen will give a lecture on “How to write a better thesis” in which he will provide you with tips, point out commonly made mistakes, and discuss how to improve on them.
Second, two PhD students will host a STATA workshop on the 25th of May for students working on an empirical thesis and using STATA. You will be given tips and tricks on how to use STATA. There will also be a Q&A session where students can ask questions about STATA and their own thesis/dataset.
Third, we will have a feedback session on June 9th. Here, you can present your thesis progress to one or two Professors, who will provide you with feedback and useful insights on how to proceed.
Finally, you can win up to €250 for your thesis. In June and July we will host a prize contest for which you can hand in your final thesis. The three best theses will be awarded €250, €125, and €75 for respectively 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The ceremony will be held in September.
With all these activities we hope to provide you all the support you need for writing your thesis and we hope that you’ll stay on track and finish your thesis on time!
How to participate
Participation is free. Please note that anyone is welcome to sign up for the Kick-Off lecture and the STATA workshop, but the feedback session and the competition is only open for students writing their thesis in the general field of economics (related to the EMO, Policy Economics or International Economics seminars).
Unfortunately, the sign ups for the feedback session are already closed due to a high demand. In case you have signed up, you will receive an email with additional information prior to the event.
To participate in the ETP Thesis Competition is very simple. Simply send your thesis in pdf-format to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to mention which Major and Seminar you followed and who your thesis supervisor is!
The deadline for handing in your thesis is the 22nd of July at 23:59.
The winners will receive their prize during a celebration in September (date TBA).
