Do all grad programs make you write a thesis? Specifically an MBA?
I thought mostly PhD people write papers... I didn't write one when I got my MS
I did not have to.
I did for mine...
My bro-in law doesn't have to. I don't have to write one for my MS but I do have to do a large project for it.
Most MBA's dont have to write a thesis, but have to take additional credits to fill that requirement. For an MS in a practical major, ie CS, CE, etc, you will have to have a thesis. Mine just got approved for defense today!
I think it depends on what you want to do with your degree. I was looking at MS programs for a little while and it seemed like you had the option of doing a thesis or a project. I can't remember why, but I do remember reading that there is some reason to select a thesis over a project, and it may have something to do with where you intend to go academically.
ok thanks for the info guys. i didn't think MBAs required one, but someone just told me otherwise. SHE is obviously mistaken lol. i hope
MS = thesis/research/project that is reviewed by a committee of professors/faculty.
MA = comprehensive exam usually involving a giant multiple choice exam or multiple essay questions.
this is generally how it's done but some schools will give you a MS depending on the difficulty of the degree.
It varies from school to school and program to program. Figure out where you want to go first then check their website or call them.
Thanks, I've been working on it long enough that I know it pretty well and should be able to present it.
Plus, some programs have a thesis track and a non-thesis track. Basic research on the programs' websites will tell you the requirements.
science majors have a master thesis, Humanities majors also have a master thesis.
Some colleges even make there seniors write a senior thesis on there major.
Its totally dependent on the school you goto.
