Job Market & Placements

The Department of Economics at the University of Bonn supports graduates of the Bonn Graduate School of Economics and post docs of the department on the scientific job market.

Our alumni have obtained positions at prestigious universities in the U.S. (e.g. Harvard, Berkeley, Penn, UCLA, CalTech, Michigan, Minnesota), in Europe (e.g. Bocconi, University College London, Manchester, Pompeu Fabra, Rotterdam, Tilburg, Carlos III, Stockholm, Zurich), and in Germany (e.g. Mannheim, Munich, Berlin, Cologne). In addition, many of them now work in public institutions as well as in the non-academic sector (e.g., European Central Bank, German Bundesbank, European Stability Mechanism (ESM), Bank of England, U.S. Federal Reserve Board, National Bureau of Economic Research, Cambridge (MA), McKinsey, Boston Consulting).
