Tips to help you research and prepare a good MBA Thesis
- CHOOSE A RESEARCH TOPIC THAT IS OF INTEREST TO YOU
Successful completion of the MBA thesis or MBA Dissertation will take an incredible amount of dedication, time and hard work. Therefore, don’t you think it would be a good idea to choose a topic that you are at least somewhat interested in? The beauty of the MBA thesis is that you get to choose your own ideas about a particular subject, and choose exactly how you are going to prove to the world just how right your ideas are! When you think about it, this is actually pretty exciting. So when you choose your subject, pick something that interests you and it won’t seem quite so much like work.
- CHOOSE A TOPIC ON WHICH THERE IS PLENTY OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE
Just as it is important to choose a topic you are interested it, it is also important that you choose a topic that has plenty of readily available information for you. Of course, the MBA thesis definitely not just a regurgitation of facts and figures, but it is very important that there be available research so that you can draw viable conclusions from them.
- BE BOTH CREATIVE AND THOROUGH WHEN PERFORMING RESEARCH

Today’s technological age allows for compilation of data in more ways than ever before. Simply put your mind to it and be creative with the ways you collect data.
- INTEGRATE KNOWLEDGE BETWEEN SUBSECTIONS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
A highly successful university professor that has reviewed countless potential theses over is career once told me that the trick to a successful MBA thesis is to integrate the knowledge between subsection as often, and as thoroughly, as possible. The mark of a good thesis is one that uses knowledge to build upon knowledge, to build upon even more knowledge! Integrate, integrate, integrate!
- RECHECK EACH AND EVERY FACT AND DETAIL… TWICE!
As stated before, the MBA Thesis will be one of the most important, if not the most important, productions of your entire academic career. As such, it is vitally important that you check and re-check each and every fact, detail, or number. The structure of the thesis is such that just a tiny amount of faulty data can ruin the entire thesis. Remember to be thorough with your proofreading and fact checking!
