In Praxi Outstanding Thesis Awards –

In recognition of excellence.

About the awards

With the In Praxi Outstanding Thesis Awards, the alumni of WHU recognize final theses of WHU graduates that are exceptional in a number of ways: They stand out academically, they address a question that is relevant beyond business and to society as a whole, and they generate novel insights and have a clear potential for impact. By publicizing the awards, In Praxi increases the visibility of the school’s social impact beyond the WHU community.

The In Praxi Awards for Outstanding Thesis are presented after the jury meeting at WHU‘s graduation ceremony held every year in September. Each award includes a prize of EUR 1,000. Furthermore In Praxi offers to connect awardees with a mentor from the In Praxi network who will support them to develop the thinking and ideas of their thesis further and put them into practice. All past winners of the In Praxi Outstanding Thesis Awards are showcased on the information boards in the Zalando Lounge in the In Praxi Learning Center.

In September 2022 In Praxi will award the 13th In Praxi Outstanding Thesis Awards: one for a BSc thesis and one for a MSc thesis. New (since 2021): We are offering a third award for MBA and EMBA graduates.
