The Economists Association of Albacete calls an award and 2 runner-up prizes for the Final Year Dissertation defended during the year 2018/19 at the School of Economics and Business Administration of the UCLM-Campus of Albacete, for all students of those grades that are enabled to be members of the Association: Economy (also the Double Degree with Law) and Business Administration and Management.

The deadline for applications -with the application form included in the document “Terms and Conditions of the award”- is 10th of September. Applications will be sent in PDF format to colegioalbacete@economistas.org. Information as requested by the Economists Association is:

The mechanism that has enabled the School for sending the Final Year Dissertations is as follows:

The Commission of Final Year Dissertations -formed by the Coordinators of the different Degrees, the Vice-Dean for Academic Planning and Students and the Vice-Dean of Quality- will sent to the Dean the best Final Year Dissertations(between 5 and 10) within those who have been proposed for “Sobresaliente” (Outstanding) grade and “Matrícula de Honor” (Honours) grade in the three calls for defense (January, June, and July). The Dean will give the go-ahead to the selection before sending them to the Economists Association of Albacete.

The Comission will evaluate and select projects presented based on the following criteria:

  1. That the work is original and unpublished, as well as represent a certain breakthrough within the domain of knowledge of the study.
  1. Academic quality valued in aspects such as the review of previous literature, methodology or proper cohesion between parts of the work, among others.
  2. Impact of the work on the economic and social development measured through contributions of the Final Year Dissertation in these aspects.
  3. The quality of the presentation.

The deadline for the Comission’s resolution will be September 11th and before September 20th the Dean will forward to the Economists Association of Albacete the list of Final Year Dissertations to be considered for the award. Award-winning nominations will be announced by the jury before the ceremony of graduation of the School of Economics and Business Administration (11th of October of 2019).
