General Management/Enterprise Evolution

a.y. 2022/23

Rules for the Thesis Works

(these rules are valid since September, 1st, 2022)

Premise: Those students who wish to write their thesis in the General Management/Enterprise Evolution subject are kindly requested to read carefully the following rules. These rules are aimed at fostering a really “dialectical” relationship between the students and their supervisor.


1. Theses can be assigned only when the number of remaining exams is 4 (or lower than 4).

2. A thesis can be: a) mostly composed of a literature review; or b)

3. An analytical thesis is considered, by the supervisor of this subject, as a thesis mostly based on the rigorous collection, processing and interpretation of business data. In this subject, only strictly analytical theses can be considered as eligible for recommendation (i.e. segnalazione).

4. The development of an analytical thesis often implies the student’s direct relationship with one or more firms. In this regard, students should be proactive in the search of appropriate case studies. Eventually, the supervisor can also help. Once the analytical thesis has been completed, the supervisor will approve its final discussion only if its content, especially in terms of data information developed, has been formally approved also by the involved firm(s).

5. The student and her/his supervisor discuss (and hopefully agree) about the topic of the proposed thesis during their first meeting. In this regard, the thesis must always relate to one of the topics taught during the course. The student’s pro-activity in suggesting ideas is greatly appreciated. On this side, exploring the webpage containing the titles of the dissertations completed over time could help.

6. Once the topic of the thesis has been defined, the supervisor will guide the student through the supposed structure of the work (i.e. 3 chapters).

7. Particular reasons (for example, in the case of ERASMUS students) can enable the e-supervising (e.g. through Teams connections). Anyway, the e-supervising ALWAYS happens during the supervisor’s office hours weekly scheduled on the faculty’s website.
