Master's Thesis In the Master Thesis, MBF students apply their finance knowledge in an individual research project. Your Master's thesis in the MBF programme will be graded and weighted with 18 ECTS. You may derive your topic from the Master's major or from a contextual field. However, it must be related to banking, finance or insurance. Since the MBF is a programme entirely taught in English, the Master's thesis must necessarily be written in English.
