The master’s thesis, or the degree project as it is otherwise called, is undoubtedly one of the defining elements of the whole master’s programme.

Taking advantage of a short break between courses, I am currently reading the international bestseller “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman. I remember having read two psychology books from the author a few years ago and last year the Nobel laureate and his fascinating work was brought to our attention during the course “Direction and Coordination in Disaster Management”. … Continue reading
