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

Exam Registration, Lecture Series

Von: FB 03 - Studienbüro

Dear MIEP Students


I hope you all had a great Christmas break and you are all well rested as the semester is starting to get serious (*cough*exams*cough*). This week I have for you:


-          Exam registration

-          Lecture series

-          Job


As eluded to above, this semester is drawing to a close and of course that means exams. Exam registration started yesterday at 1pm. and will end on January 20, 1pm. and not a minute later!

If you would like to do me a favor, you will register for the exams so that I do not have you sitting in my office after that time being unable to participate in the exams. (Incidentally, you will also do yourself a favor with that)


The guidelines regarding illness (what to do when being sick during the exams) is also attached to this email already but I will try to send it again once exams actually start.



Secondly, the lecture series is taking place January 16 and 17. Please keep in mind that you have to sign all sign in sheets in order to receive credits.



Finally, the Otto Beisheim School of Management is searching for doctoral students:



It seems like this is it for this week and I leave you with a short and to the point newsletter, which is not usually how this goes. I hope you do not feel dissatisfied. If so, simply register for your exams and you will feel much better (almost a guarantee). Have a spectacular week.
