ones to ensure that the customers do not suffer due to matches. Most of the dissertation and thesis
topics are pertaining to Networking, IT, Finance, HR, Marketing and Management. Few topics on
Humanities, Psychology, Criminology and Sociology were also undertaken that are not mentioned

The following topics have been presented not only to publish the areas in which ETCO INDIA has successfully supported customers in Dissertation and
Thesis Research projects but also to present an idea about the theoretical foundation upon which new topics can be developed that have not yet been
addressed adequately. Please note that new problems requiring research efforts always evolve from the empirical solutions to the old problems and hence the
world of research keeps moving on.
