Exemplary thesis (PDF, 2 MB)

This exemplary thesis is a particularly good in terms of demonstrating a detailed understanding of the relevant literature, providing a rigorous qualitative study with five extensive interviews (including a pretest), and  a systematica analysis of the data according to various pre-defined steps. In addition, the thesis provides a coherent summary and reflects on the methodological approach used to answer the research question. However, in this thesis, the results of the empirical analysis could be better related back to the theoretical findings and the literature. Also, the thesis could have discussed the literature and the interviews more critically.


Exemplary thesis II (PDF, 879 KB)

This exemplary thesis is particularly good in terms of the literature review, personal contribution and reflection of the limits of the thesis. Despite these main strengths of the thesis, the theory could be applied more substantively and the limits of the application could be assessed more critically.
