Doctoral Program (Ph.D.) with integrated M.Sc. Economic Research

Doctoral Programm

The doctoral program with its integrated master's program is offered by Bonn Graduate School of Economics and aimed at students who belong to the top group in their class at renowned universites in Germany or abroad. The program is divided into a two-year course, which concludes with the "Master in Economics with a Specialization in Economic Research" and a three-year PhD, during which students develop initial research projects and participate in a variety of ways (weekly seminars, Reading Groups, Summer Schools) with other doctoral students, postdocs and professors. During this time they present their first research results in workshops in Bonn, but also present them at international conferences.

As one of its founding members, the Department of Economics has been involved since 1977 in the European Doctoral Program (EDP), a joint program with the London School of Economics, the Université Catholique de Louvain, the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and (associated) Tel Aviv University. Doctoral students have the opportunity to spend a research stay of several months at one of these partner universities and participate in the annual EDP conferences. BGSE doctoral students are also offered at other internationally renowned universities, such as The University of California at Berkeley, Harvard University and Yale University gladly accepted for research stays.

Comprehensive information and contact details can be found on the Bonn Graduate School of Economics website.
