The Human Resource Studies / GMSI Master is completed by writing a master's thesis. This thesis can be considered as a competence test in which the master's student can show to what extent he or she is able to perform academic research independently.
The HRS / GMSI master's thesis must be based on original empirical research in the field of Human Resource Studies / GMSI. The data for this research will be collected in one or more organisations. By completing the master's thesis, the student shows that he/she:

• is able to conduct academic research independently;
• has a profound knowledge of a specific scientific topic, which is part of the research programme of the Department of Human Resource Studies;
• has the competence to apply advanced research methods in independent research;
• is able to make an original contribution to a specific debate in HR Studies;
• is able to interpret research results and reflect upon these using theoretical knowledge, leading to conclusions and recommendations relevant to the scientific field and to practitioners (especially HR policy in the organisation).

The master's thesis has the format of an academic article, not exceeding 10,000 words. The thesis meets the requirements for the APA publications. In principle, the finalized thesis should be suited to be submitted to an academic journal.
