The Master's Thesis is introduced
In 1929, the so-called ‘enhedsplan’ (unity plan) is implemented. The plan links the two-year full-time programme and the diploma programmes and evening courses with the possibility of obtaining a master degree in Science of Commerce.
The ‘unity plan’ comes into force in the autumn of 1929, dividing the full-time programme into two separate programmes in Science of Commerce and Business Languages, respectively. The new plan makes it possible for graduates from the full-time programmes to continue their studies; either in the diploma programmes or in the evening language programmes.
Students who have passed both the Science of Commerce full-time programme and one of the diploma programmes are offered the opportunity to write a Master’s Thesis and obtain a master’s degree. Nevertheless, it takes eight years before the first Master’s Thesis is handed in and defended – in 1937.
As part of the unity plan, the school is re-organised. Two faculties in Science of Commerce and Business Languages, respectively, are established.
1929 is also the year that the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education establishes the Tietgen Award to mark the centenary of the birth of Danish Financier end Industrialist C.F. Tietgen. The award is a gold medal with the profile of C. F. Tietgen on the front and the seal of the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education on the back.Today, the prize is awarded to young researchers who have made a significant contribution within the field of business humanities and social sciences.
