This capstone project is the conclusion of the BSc in international Business and Politics. It is an independent project, written with a faculty advisor, and students can pursue their own interests within the broad area of international business and politics. Projects can pursue a purely theoretical question, or they can focus on an action- or policy-oriented problem, or they can pose problems that combine such elements. A mandatory project seminar is part of the faculty guidance.
