Dr. Andreas Dombret doctoral thesis award

Hon. Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Andreas Raymond Dombret

I want to contribute actively to further strengthening the practical orientation of the University of Münster School of Business & Economics. This also means that outstanding dissertations shall be acknowledged publicly as such by the faculty and be awarded a prize.

Prerequisites

The Dr. Andreas Dombret doctoral thesis award of the University of Münster School of Business & Economics includes a prize money of 2,000 euros. It is awarded once in the academic year for the dissertation that most successfully manages to combine theoretical knowledge with specific application in business or economic practice. As a precondition, the dissertation must have been appraised with "summa cum laude" at the University of Münster School of Business & Economics. The faculty is responsible for the selection of the prize winner and is finalised after consulting with Dr. Dombret.
