The final months of the academic programme are devoted to the writing of the dissertation. The preparation of a dissertation is one of the most creative challenges of a post graduate programme. The dissertation aims to:
provide an opportunity to study a particular topic in depth; put into practice theories and concepts learned in the programme; combine relevant theories and suggest alternatives;
enable interaction with practitioners.

Since the course focuses on International Marketing, the dissertation must have a substantial marketing/international marketing aspect. Students are given the following three options:
to undertake their dissertation in AUEB
to undertake their dissertation abroad in a host university under the Erasmus programme*
to undertake a field study project (FSP) in groups of 2-3 students in one of the companies that collaborate with PRIMA**

The dissertation must be written in English.
