Master week 2 - Research, methods and writing the thesis

The second master week will take place on Tuesday January 5th, Wednesday January 6th and Friday January 8th 2021.  We welcome all master students on their second semester of their studies. 

All lectures are held on Zoom. You find the zoom link on this protected web-page. The teaching is in English, unless otherwise specified.

The topic of the second Master week is researching and writing the thesis. Three days of lectures aim to give you tools to help you in the process.

The Master week is not mandatory, but all the lectures deal with topics you are expected to know as a master student. However, some topics might be more relevant than others. For instance if you are certain you will use Quantitative empirical method, you should join this lecture

The program may be subject to change. It will be updated with links to slides after the presentations.
