Tesi – Thesis

TESI

Tutti gli studenti interessati a svolgere una tesi con me su uno dei miei corsi sono i benvenuti.

Se sei interessato/a a lavorare con me su una tesi per favore mandami una email a rdandi@luiss.it con la parola TESI /THESIS nell’oggetto. Risponderò a tutti entro un giorno. Per favore non ti ridurre a contattarmi all’ultimo minuto ma con un anticipo congruo (almeno 3 mesi se non hai esami da sostenere, anche prima se ne hai).

Requisiti:

  • saper leggere in inglese: la maggior parte dei materiali sarà in inglese.
  • motivazione: non prendere sotto gamba questo periodo. La tesi non è una formalità, è la prova che sapete applicare quello che avete imparato e l’occasione per approfondire una tematica guardandola nella sua realtà. Non perdere tempo, né il tuo né il mio.
  • onestà: il plagio è l’unico modo per fallire un progetto di tesi con me. Chi copia e incolla o parafrasa senza citare correttamente le fonti subirà le conseguenze disciplinari previste dal Dipartimento.

Non pongo paletti alle tematiche concernenti i miei corsi di laurea triennale. Per i corsi di laurea magistrale, i temi / settori sono i seguenti:

  • Strategy and organization of Social businesses in Health and Social Care
  • Strategy and performance measurement in Public Administrations / Health and Social Care / Pharma industry / Medical Devices industry
  • Change Management in Public Administrations / Health and Social Care / Pharma industry / Medical Devices industry
  • Big Data Analytics in Public Administrations / Health and Social Care / Pharma industry / Medical Devices industry
  • Network interventions in Public Administrations / Health and Social Care / Pharma industry / Medical Devices industry
  • Sales organization and Market Access in Pharma industry / Medical Devices industry
  • International organizational design
  • International human resource management
  • eHealth policies, strategies, organization

Il periodo della tesi può essere un’esperienza stupenda e molto utile per la tua formazione. Sfruttalo al meglio! Sono in particolare benvenuti gli studenti con la passione di apprendere e che abbiano intenzione di fare un po’ di lavoro sul campo.

NOTA BENE: La sottoscrizione del modulo di approvazione dell’elaborato finale/tesi da parte mia rappresenta la garanzia per l’Ateneo dell’adeguata maturità scientifica dell’elaborato finale. Prima di firmare ogni modulo devo approvare il testo della tesi completa.

THESES

I welcome any student interested in working on a thesis concerning one of my courses.

If you are interested in working with me please send me an email to rdandi@luiss.it with TESI / THESIS in the object. I will reply within one day and give you an appointment. Please contact me far in advance (at least three months, if you have finished all the exams, earlier if not) before the ultimate deadline.

Requisites:

  • Motivation: the thesis is an important occasion for demonstrating what you have learned and for going deeper into a topic. Don’t waste your time, and my time, doing a lousy job. 
  • Honesty: plagiarism will not be tolerated. Disciplinary consequences will occur.

I welcome any issue related to my bachelor degree courses. For master degree theses, I prefer these topics / industries:

  • Strategy and organization of Social businesses in Health and Social Care
  • Strategy and performance measurement in Public Administrations / Health and Social Care / Pharma industry / Medical Devices industry

The thesis period can become the most enjoying and useful for a student learning process. I especially welcome those who are interested in doing some fieldwork and who are passionate about learning.

Frequently asked questions:

  1. Is there a deadline for asking you to be my supervisor? No but the sooner the better. I have currently 40 theses to follow until November 2016, so I am full until then.
  2. Should we stick with the topics you mentioned on your page? No, we can negotiate. If you have a passion or talent to leverage please let me know. Please just be as specific as you can be. No thesis should cover too many topics. Choose a sub-sub-sub topic and do it in depth.
  3. How do I conduct a literature review? In order to do a literature review you need to do two activities.
    1. Select the documents to use. Go to Google Scholar or to LUISS Library website and look at databases such as ISI Web of Science and SCOPUS to look for articles on your topic. Criteria for inclusion: (i) Relevance: the articles should focus on your topic; (ii) Prestige: the articles are highly cited by other articles or books; (iii) Newness: the articles/books are recent; (iv) Scholarly: the articles are published on scholarly publications rather than popular magazines.
    2. Analyze the documents you selected. The goals of a good review are (Hart, 1999): “1. distinguishing what has been done from what needs to be done;2. discovering important variables relevant to the topic;3. synthesizing and gaining a new perspective;4. identifying relationships between ideas and practices;5. establishing the context of the topic or problem;6. rationalizing the significance of the problem;7. enhancing and acquiring the subject vocabulary;8. understanding the structure of the subject;9. relating ideas and theory to applications;10. identifying the main methodologies and research techniques that have been used;11. placing the research in a historical context to show familiarity with state-of-the-art developments.” (p. 27). You can get a nice summary of what you need to do here or you can get a step-by-step guide by reading Ridley 2008
  4. Is the case study mandatory? I ask my students to have some fieldwork in general. This can include one or more case studies, a survey to several organizations, or an original analysis of archival or document data.
  5. Do you provide the contacts for the case studies? If I have contacts I can use them. If not you need to provide me the contacts and I will contact them and try to get access.
  6. How long should it be? There is no standard. I think it’s easier to write a longer than a shorter thesis. In any case, for master degree theses I would prefer at least 100 pages.
  7. What are the editing specifics? Times New Roman, size 12, margins 3,3,3,3, space between lines: 1,5
  8. Is there a style for references I need to follow? I welcome any standard for references, I prefer APA STYLE 5. See here
  9. How many points can I potentially get? The maximum is 6 points, but you would need to do a magnificent job. It depends on the final result and the discussion with the commission.
  10. Is there a way to fail with you? The only  way  you can surely fail with me is by copying and pasting some text/graph/table/data without citing it, or citing it wrongly. Here (in Italian) or here (in English) you find some clear examples of plagiarism. If you do that I’ll find out. I’m pretty experienced about this. The consequences at LUISS are these. Even if I don’t find out your tricks, the consequences for you would be even worse: you would just not learn anything by copying your thesis. The opportunity you had for developing your own point of view on something would be lost forever. Also, do you really want to start your career with a fraud?
