We offer five Master's programmes by Research in English, all leading to the Master of Science degree conferred by our British partner, The University of Buckingham.
The Master's programmes by Research do not offer systematic instruction; instead, the emphasis is on independent research and one-to-one supervision. During the programme there is a close working relationship between student and supervisor. While the final thesis must be an independent work, it is the supervisor who offers advice on refining the topic (if necessary), on primary sources, on secondary reading, on research techniques and on writing the final text (which should be not more than 40,000 words). The supervisor shall always be the student’s primary contact for academic advice and support.
Preference areas of the research thesis:
- General management
- Finance, corporate banking, monetary policy
- Development studies
- Regional development
- International Affairs, with particular regard to European and transatlantic affairs and CIS countries
- History of Arts and Visual Culture
