The BGSE is one of the founding partners of the European Doctoral Program (EDP). The EDP opens up the way for doctoral students of the BGSE to spend time at one of the EDP-Partners in Barcelona, Florence, London, Louvain-la-Neuve, Paris and Tel Aviv, to participate at the annual doctoral student conference, the EDP-jamboree, and to benefit from the EDP’s long established and firm tradition to integrate graduate students into the international academic community.
Since 2015, the BGSE has a formal agreement on a regular student exchange with Yale University. The visits last for an academic year and are financed through research assistantships.
Bachelor students from Bonn who plan to go for a doctoral degree can apply for the UC Berkeley Exchange Program.
Based on the excellent reputation of graduate education in Bonn, BGSE students are equally well received by other institutions without formal cooperation agreements. In the last few years, some of our doctoral students have spent extensive research visits at a number of excellent universities abroad, as for example:
- University of California at San Diego
- Columbia University
- Harvard University
- New York University
- Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen
- University of Pennsylvania
- Princeton University
- Standford University
