General information

In order to obtain the Master of Science degree, students are required to present and defend their written thesis in front of the Examination Board.

In order to be admitted to the graduation session students must earn all the credit points (credits must be earned not later than one month before the graduation day) provided in the program structure except for those credits of the thesis and must not have any pending financial obligations to University of Tor Vergata.

The thesis is worth 24 credit points according to the program structure of the MSc Program in Business Administration.

The thesis is evaluated on contents, presentation and defense. The evaluation is expressed out of 110. Students pass the final degree exam if they obtain a mark of at least 66. The Board can unanimously award "lode" (cum laude) as a special distinction.

The thesis preparation is divided into the following phases:
  • Assignment of the thesis
  • Admission to the graduation session and thesis submission
  • Thesis oral presentation and awarding of the graduation grade

Assignment procedure

The thesis supervisor who formally assigns the thesis, supervises the progress of the work, assists the student to comply with any changes that need to be made to the thesis and decides whether the thesis can be considered completed in order to be defensed during the graduation session.

The supervisor is chosen by the students among the professors according to the BA course structure.

The thesis must be written on a topic connected to the 3 courses of your specialisation or to a core course (first-year courses).

Since the specialisation in Management Consulting is cross-sectoral the students belonging to this specialisation can choose a topic related to a course of the 4 functional specializations: Marketing and Sales, Human Resources Management, Control and Audit, Sustainable Supply Chain Management, only if they take the two optional courses in one of these specialisations in order to develop the deep knowledge required to write a thesis.
