Thesis Competition Winners Announced

And here they are! The winners of the edcom Thesis Competition 2017-2018!

After 3 rounds of judging, the jurors have decided that the following two entries stood out the most:

In the Bachelor category, Caitlin Brands, a student from Avans Hogeschool (the Netherlands), won with her paper aiming at closing the bridge between media agencies, advertisers and consumers. In the Master category, Patricia Oliveira from the Portuguese University of IADE impressed the jurors with her thesis on a communications device to control satisfaction with tourism and quality of life in urban cities.

In our blog post you can find a detailed description of what their research entails and why these theses were highly appreciated by the judges.

Both winners will be awarded with a cash prize of €400 and a €400 voucher for the participating institutes, to be used on edcom and EACA educational initiatives. The first round and second round finalists will receive a printed certificate to recognise their achievement.
