I have to provide a theme for students for a project like a bachelor's thesis. Students know all the basic math like calculus, linear algebra, ODE etc, but nothing fancy like PDE and stochastic calculus. Plus they supposed to have some very basic courses in economy. What could the possible themes be?
From one hand it should be something really of a serious project, so a student can make by himself one thing then another and so on, and from the other hand it probably should not require lots of purely economic concepts (preferably only basic ones).
Could it be (given the absence of deep economical training) something in mathematical modelling or analysis of some economical processes? I want to catch the gist of it, so the more examples the better. Please, if possible, not only a theme's name but a few words what a student is expected to do. Sorry if it's too broad a description, but I have a very vague idea that a good project of this sort would constitute.
