Research theses

On this page we've published a few theses written by students, which we thought were of a high standard and deserved a wider dissemination than they would normally get through the real libraries in which they are archived.

These theses are, however, still protected by copyright, which belongs to their authors.

For those of you who may be tempted to plagiarise the work of the authors of these theses, it is only fair to warn you that most business schools and universities are equipped with highly efficient software which is able to check very quickly whether a given sentence in your thesis, whether edited or not, has been lifted from a document published on the net. A word to the wise is enough!

Enjoy!
