Master in Digital Project Management & Consulting


Professional thesis

Starting in mid-April, students must draft a professional thesis in consultation with an ESCP Europe Professor. This individual applied research project is an essential part of the programme since it leads to in-depth analysis. The topic chosen is approved beforehand by an academic advisor and students are taught research methods. The thesis is defended orally to a committee between early November and mid-December.

The thesis marks the culmination of the MSc programme. It represents 30 of the total of
90 ECTS credits earned over the year.

Here are a few examples of thesis topics of the ESCP Europe MSc in Business Project Management:

  • “Mergers & acquisitions in B2B: Key success factors in the integration phase”

  • “Fair trade: a French-US comparison of sustainable growth of two large
    organisations: Artisans du Monde and Ten Thousand Villagers”.
