The MBA thesis is the central core of the program and holds the status of a course in its own right. On this course, the group designs and rolls out a business plan based on one of two options: a theoretical research project related to any aspect of business organization; or a functional operational plan based on a real company and situation.

The guidelines for the development of this plan and forming the working groups are presented during the course.

The MBA thesis has 4 key objectives:
