In the Philippines, an academic thesis is named by the degree, such as bachelor/undergraduate thesis or masteral thesis. However, in Philippine English , the term doctorate is typically replaced with doctoral (as in the case of "doctoral dissertation"), though in official documentation the former is still used. The terms thesis and dissertation are commonly used interchangeably in everyday language yet it generally understood that a thesis refers to bachelor/undergraduate and master academic work while a dissertation is named for doctorate work.
Hi, nice to see you here. As to your thesis, it's important to understand that the situation in small business sector in Somaliland depends upon internal and external factors. The internal factors (depending upon business owners themselves) include the employer dependence syndrome, lack of basic book-keeping, marketing and business planning. At the same time, the external factors, which should be handled on the state level, include the lack of effective micro-finance institutions, lack of commercial legal framework and commercial arbitration mechanism. So, choose the challenges which interest you the most and compose them into a strong thesis statement. Good luck!
