Students develop a basic understanding of producing an empirical Bachelor’s thesis with the aim to setting limits for oneself and producing empirical research into a topic from the field of Sports, Cultural and Event Management using an appropriate research question. They can apply the fundamental concepts, theories and the corresponding empirical findings which they have become familiar with throughout the program and can reflect on their own processes. Skills in the areas of self-organization, time management, research and articulacy are encouraged.

The Bachelor's Thesis Tutorial II teaches students the characteristics of empirical research and how they can write their own empirical research paper. They have the opportunity to discuss and optimize their theoretical groundwork, their methodology and their implementation of empirical methods through regular discussion with other students. The students receive academic guidance and supervision on this, their second Bachelor’s thesis, through recommendations and examples.
