Information on picking a topic and getting started with the MSc thesis: http://aalto-econ.fi/gradu
To enroll in the seminar you must have a topic accepted by a faculty member at the Department of Economics. The deadline for the or the Spring 2023 seminar the deadline is Nov 15, 2022; Fall 2023 seminar is May 31st, 2023. Obtaining approval may require some back-and-forth between the student and the faculty, so make sure to start the process several weeks before the deadline.
For Spring 2023 seminar registration you must notify Marko Terviö (for Fall 2023 seminar Kristiina Huttunen) by email about the provisional topic and the faculty member who approved
it. (If you would like to participate, but have no idea for a topic,
you can simply go and ask a faculty member for a topic of their choice).
After that you still need to confirm your participation by enrolling in
the seminar via Sisu.
The initial approved topic is not a binding commitment. Its purpose is to make sure that everyone who enrols is capable presenting their research plan in the second week of the semester. The topic and the advisor can be changed subject to the same approval procedure as the initial topic.
