Writing a thesis

Students should keep in mind that, depending on the type of thesis they write, they should make sure to dedicate sufficient time for the research, analysis, and writing of the thesis.

The thesis supervisor should be chosen from the professors with whom the student has sat at least one exam and whose area of research is pertinent to the student’s possible thesis topic. Students must send a motivated request to the professor (well in advance), to decide the topic together and establish a timetable for the collection of data and the writing of each chapter. Students must send regular updates to their thesis supervisor, to keep him/her informed of their progress. Note that your thesis should be between 15,000 and 25,000 words. Each supervisor will have additional specific indications for students to follow.

Students are kindly requested to indicate their expected graduation session to the MSc in Finance and Banking Program Office (msc_finance@economia.uniroma2.it) as soon as they have confirmation from their thesis supervisor that their work is proceeding according to schedule, or at least 60 days before graduation.

Students should use a specific thesis format and document their research. Each supervisor will have additional specific indications for students to follow. Editorial Standard

Documents to submit

Students should submit the following to the Students Administrative Office located on the ground floor of Building B of the School of Economics at least 30 days before the date of thesis defence:

Roughly ten days before the graduation session, students will be required to upload their thesis on the Delphi online platform and the Supervisor will accept or decline the submitted thesis. Students will be required to send a copy of their thesis also to the MSc in Finance and Banking Program Office (msc_finance@economia.uniroma2.it) for the Turnitin Anti-plagiarism Check.

One week before the graduation session, candidates will receive an email from the MSc in Finance and Banking Program Office with a request for the PowerPoint or pdf presentation that will be used on the day of graduation.

The graduating student should provide the Supervisor and Co-Supervisor with a printed and bound copy of the thesis before the thesis defense.

Details confirming the candidates and the Graduation Committee will be published a few days before the graduation date.

Cancellation: Students who decide to forgo submitting their dissertation should delete their application in Delphi and make a formal request by email to the Students Administrative Office (segreteria-studenti@economia.uniroma2.it) and in cc the MSc in Finance and Banking Program Office (msc_finance@economia.uniroma2.it) with enclosed also a copy of your ID card/passport at least 15 days before the scheduled thesis presentation date.

Thesis defence and evaluation

The thesis is evaluated on contents, presentation and defense. The graduation session is composed by the oral presentation and the defense which includes answering questions and discussing issues raised by the members of an Examination Board.

The Examination Board is composed by at least 7 members, and it is appointed by the Dean of the School of Economics 20 days before the graduation session.

After the defense, the Commission determines the student's final grade. The evaluation is expressed out of 110. Students will be awarded the MSc in Economics if they obtain a mark of at least 66/110. The grade starting point is the exams' weighted mean transposed in 110, which is increased by the following points:

  • a maximum of 5 points are assigned, taking into consideration the quality of the thesis contents, presentation and defense
  • instead, a maximum of 8 points are assigned, taking into consideration the recommendation letter provided by the supervisor for a prestigious thesis. The recommendation letter from the supervisor must be addressed to the President of the Examination Board, and must underline the specific reasons of the positive contribution in the thesis
  • Special Distinction: to graduates that obtain the maximum grade, 110/110, the Examination Board can unanimously award honors ("lode") upon explanation
