The IE Thesis Pitch was organised by the IE Career Committee on June 9th for students looking to embark on their thesis projects. Five IE students currently working on their thesis shared their experiences: developing their ideas from the initial spark, choosing their advisors, working with companies and even writing their papers for dual-masters.
The pitch started off with a quick round of introductions by the five students, each presenting the gist of their current thesis topics, their approaches to writing and also some tips for the attendees. The session then split into breakout rooms, where attendees had the chance to pose their burning questions and clarify their doubts about the thesis writing process with the five thesis-writing students. The thesis-writing students offered many pearls of advice and encouragement. It was very heartening to see the flow of conversations in the breakout room!
At the end, to thank the five students for their generosity and time for sharing with our participants, Shift planted 10 trees on behalf of them!
