Abstract [en]

Most economics students at Uppsala and Umeå do not complete their undergraduate thesis within the intended time. We find that coauthoring, compared to writing alone, increases the probability of completing a thesis. A second thesis is less likely to be completed than a first. The two departments also differ in completion time. The probability of completing decreases over time. There is also some weaker evidence that students with high grades are more likely to complete and that women take a longer time to complete their theses.
