Financial crises seem to hit the markets with surprising frequency; What is the explanation for these
events, is it possible to construct early warning indicators?

The thesis title should give a clear indication of the topic being studied. Keep in mind: There is
always the possibility to improve the wording at later stages of your research. Your future employer
may ask you about the topic of your dissertation so try to make it interesting!
The Problem: The proposal should contain a description of the study problem which includes
specification of the study question(s), in relation to previous research and to the literature. Keep in
mind: A well – stated description of the problem will also help you to stay focused during your
Theoretical Framework and Background Information: the proposal should discuss the
major theoretical premises and the salient concepts which underlie the problem or question(s). The
proposal should then outline a framework, based on literature, for analyzing the problem and
Design and Methods The questions and/or hypotheses for the thesis are formulated clearly and in
such a way that all the study variables and their anticipated relationships are specified. Procedures
should be clearly outlined, including details of about data (for empirical projects) and resources (for
literature review) that will be used. Keep in mind: The objectives of your thesis should be specific,
measurable (you must know when you have reached your goal), achievable (don’t try to attempt too
much given the time you have to complete your dissertation. A complete dissertation is always better
than an incomplete one!), and realistic (for example, in the case of an empirical project do you have
the resources needed to collect your data?).
Data Analysis (for empirical projects): The methods of analysis appropriate for the study design
should be described.
Work Plan: The proposal should include a detailed work plan, with estimates of time needed to
complete each phase of the proposed research. Keep in mind : You have time constraints!
