Depending on the specialisation, the programme's contents vary:

Specialisation Mathematics

Specialisation Mathematics with a Non-Mathematical Specialisiation

Specialisation Business Mathematics

In the course of the Master’s Thesis, the students research a topic regarding mathematics or a major in accordance with scientific principles and present their findings in writing. This project takes an entire semester, thereby forming a major part of the Master’s degree programme. In the fields of study with a non-mathematical major, the Master’s Thesis may be written on a mathematically oriented topic at department of the major.
