Outline Guidelines for Dissertation Students

Remember that the outline will count for 10% of your dissertation final mark, so try to follow as closely as possible our instructions below. Do not worry about the number of words, but do worry about us understanding what you are writing (re-read it after you finish, and when you are done, re-read again and then you can re-read it one more time after that and before you re-read it again). Make sure that Microsoft Word does not find any spelling or grammar mistakes (red or green underlined words in the document).

Title
In a few words, the reader should immediately see what your dissertation is about. The title should be concise (15 words maximum) and clear. You should watch for spelling or grammar mistakes throughout your whole dissertation but this is most important in the title (use the Microsoft Word spell and grammar checker). The title should be a reformulation of the aim (see below) as a statement, rather than as a question.

Introduction
You should first state the purpose of your research. Indicate then why do you think it is interesting and relevant. Do not attempt to write too much here. A short paragraph of 10 to 15 lines will suffice. Also, remember to define any acronyms (such as ECB or WTO) you use anywhere in the outline here.
Aim
The aim should come in the form of a research question. You should state in this section “I want to answer the following question:” and then you should state the question you want to answer.
Examples:
• What are the causes of the changes in Chinese trade after the accession to the WTO?
• What is the impact of the recent increase in oil prices on the Sterling/Dollar exchange?
• How does the decision of the ECB to cut interest rates affect the level of GDP in Belgium?

Objectives
Each objective tells how you plan to achieve your aim (to answer your research question) for each part of the dissertation:
• The objective associated with the literature review is to report economic contexts, theories and empirical studies (carried out by other researchers before you) which will help you achieve your aim (to answer your research question).
• The objective associated with the research methods chapter is to explain the appropriate analytical tools (such as econometric and statistical methods) and present the empirical data which will help you achieve your aim (to answer your research question).
• The objective associated with the research findings chapter is to present, interpret and analyse the results. More than any other chapter in the dissertation this one will help you achieve your aim (to answer your research question).
• The objective associated with the conclusions chapter is to discuss and summarise the main findings, state any caveats and emit policy recommendations. In short, it should express the extent to which you manage to achieve your aim (to answer your research question).
