||During the second year of studies, the student writes a Master's Thesis under the supervision of a faculty member. The advisor (or advisors) guides the student in his/her work. The goal of the Master's thesis is to assess the student's maturity and his/her ability to conduct independent research. The student chooses a field of interest for his/her Master's Thesis. The field of interest must be one of IDEA's fields of specialization. The student establishes, with the approval of the advisor, the research question and its boundaries. The role of the advisor is to support and guide the student's research activity. After submitting the Master's thesis, the student presents his/her work before a committee that evaluates the thesis.
