Assignment of your thesis supervisor

Thesis and final degree exam

The Department of Management has developed a guide to the submission and preparation of the final degree exam and the thesis (Bachelor's and Master's), which includes information on:

  • how to request the assignment of the thesis to a professor belonging to the Department of Management;
  • reference standards for the preparation of final examinations (editing, bibliographical references, use of graphics and tables, etc.).

Further information on deadlines, admission and procedures are available on Ca' Foscari website.

Thesis Supervisor

Students can choose as thesis supervisor (Bachelor’s or Master's Degree):

  • a full professor, an associate or a researcher belonging to the Department of Management, by following the online procedure;
  • a full professor, an associate or a researcher belonging to the Department of Economics; 

Adjunct professors may be supervisors only if they hold teaching required by the degree programme.

Thesis supervisors may not include:

  • adjunct professors of supplementary activities
  • non-permanent professors
  • Foreing Language Assistants (CEL)
  • visiting professors

Students can ask the teaching committee a non-economic area supervisor: if the response of the committee will be positive, a second supervisor of economic area will be assigned.
