Papers & Theses


During the whole Business Analytics period, students have to write several reports. The most interesting ones are often published online for others to read.

During the Business Analytics Master, every student has to do some research and write a academic paper about this. This is done under faculty supervision, and often produces very intersting papers, some of which have been published in international journals. All research papers are available online, so you can see what previous students have written about. You can find these here.

Supervisors can nominate papers for the BA Best Paper Award. This prize is awarded yearly. During the award ceremony, a keynote speaker and the previous winner will present shortly. Finally, the finalists present their research to the public and the winner is announced. More information on this award is available here.

The Business Analytics Master is concluded by a Master Project Internship. This internship is a 6 month period where students work full time, to solve an academically challenging problem. Students write a report about the problem they have tackled during the internship, which functions as the final Master Thesis. All theses are published online, and you can find these here.

Students can choose to get some professional working experience next to their Master. The students are viewed as regular employees in the company. The accomplishments during this period are presented in a Dual Workplace report, and during oral presentations to fellow students. These reports can give the reader a good overview of a company and the student's responsibilities while working there. The reports are temporarily unavailable, but a link to them will be placed here soon.
