We support students in completing practice-related, project-oriented bachelor’s and master’s theses and doctoral dissertations on the research or solution of specific business administration problems with a principal focus on computer science. We offer students the opportunity to write a thesis or dissertation and apply its findings in actual operational practice. This is an ideal way to demonstrate your skills, talents and knowledge and get a leg up on finding a permanent position with Mercoline after your studies are done.

SAP knowledge and project experience is advantageous, and self-reliance, creativity and personal drive is a must.
