How can I hand in my master thesis?

Starting March 18, 2020 your MIEPP master thesis can be handed in electronically until further notice. In order to hand in your master thesis, send an e-mail from your students account to

The thesis has to be in PDF format. Furthermore, the statutory declaration has to still be signed personally. Thus, you can either scan or photograph (has to be readable) the signed statutory declaration and add it to the e-mail. The statutory declaration and the thesis have to be attached to the same e-mail.

The hand-in date is the date the e-mail is received. Once you sent the email, the hand-in is complete. There is no way you can change your thesis anymore (i.e. if you find a mistake after handing it in, you cannot send a new version on the same day).

The registrar’s office will not ask for further printed versions.

Hand in your master thesis via post. The post stamp counts as the hand in date. Please always check the requirements yourself (i.e. number of copies, binding, statutory declaration etc.)

I deregistered my exam after March 12, 2020. Is it possible to still participate in the retake exam?

Yes. Taking advantage of the short-term opportunity to deregister exams will not lead to any disadvantages.

I am now missing credits to start my master thesis

Semester start (the event you do not want to miss), City Tour and Colloquia

Von: FB 03 - Studienbüro

Dear MIEPP Students,


The weather is getting worse, the mood dampens, it all can only mean one thing: the winter semester is about to start. However, no worries, there is a glimmer of hope in all this gloom. The event of the semester, the Welcome Reception in the Kasematten! All about that and much more in this newsletter:


-          Welcome Reception

-          City Tour

-          Colloquia


The welcome reception will take place in the Kasematten (basically the basement of RW1) next Monday, October 14 at 7 pm. As every semester, all of you are invited to welcome the new students, meet old friends, maybe make some new ones and have a good time to kick the semester off. I am looking forward to seeing all of you there.


As last semester, there will be a city tour (so if you missed the last one, simply are interested in Mainz or just want to have a good time this is for you). The tour starts at 10 am. At the Römisches Theater train station on October 19.


Finally, the chair of Professor Harms (International Economics) is once again holding colloquia. If you are interested, you are welcome to join (but you cannot ask questions of the presenters). 

The colloquia will take palce Wednesday, October 16, 2019, in the room “RW 6 (01-130)”, Recht und Wirtschaft I:

Would Italy benefit from leaving the Euro area?

Angie Lizeth

Is there a "productivity puzzle" - and if so: why?





Is there a Phillips curve in emerging markets and developing countries?




That is all from me, I hope to see all of you on Monday to start the semester of in the right way, with the new students and a good time.
