MASTER THESIS

 

Students enrolled in the program are required to write a joint master thesis. Therefore they will have two supervisors: one at VMU and on at LSM.

Students start their work for the master thesis already during the first year. Since they focus on their thesis during the second year, the main supervisor will be at LSM. The  master thesis will be written in English. Students will publicly defend their Master’s Thesis.

 

ENROLMENT AND TUITION FEES

 

The students will spend the first year of their master programme  in their home university and, after their selection, the second year in the host university. During the study year abroad the students will be in the same conditions as the regular master degree-seeking students of the host university. As the students will follow two academic programmes at the same time, the double-degree track requires a double registration at the two institutions.

All VMU students must register and pay tuition fees at VMU School of Economics and Management only for the entire duration of their studies. They must also enrol at LSM from the beginning of year 2 and till they graduate.
