20 Years Bonn Graduate School of Economics

It has been 20 years since the Bonn Graduate School of Economics (BGSE) was founded. Ever since, more than 200 young economists have been trained by BGSE's well known faculty.

BGSE alumni have obtained prestigious positions at universities in the U.S. (e.g., Harvard, Berkeley, Penn, UCLA, Michigan, Minnesota), in Europe (e.g., University College London, Pompeu Fabra, Tilburg, Carlos III, Stockholm, Zurich) and in Germany (e.g., Mannheim, Munich, Berlin, Cologne). In addition, many now work in the non-academic sector (e.g., European Central Bank, German Central Bank, Bank of England, U.S. Federal Reserve Board, McKinsey, Boston Consulting).


Students benefit from many joint research activities of the Economics Department and an impressive network of national and international partners such as the Collaborative Research Center “Governance and the Efficiency of Economic Systems”, the Research Training Group “Heterogeneity, Risk, and Dynamics in Economic Systems”, the Cluster of Excellence "ECONtribute: Markets and Public Policy", briq - Institute on Behavior & Inequality, the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics and the London School of Economics. The BGSE is one of the founding partners of the European Doctoral Program (EDP). Furthermore, the BGSE has formal agreements on student exchanges with Yale and Berkeley.

We are delighted to celebrate our 20th anniversary in July 2019 with all alumni, students, colleagues and friends of the BGSE.
