Courses, Workshops & Seminars

The research master / Ph.D. program offers a wide range of courses and workshops.


During the first semester, our students take three Ph.D.-level basic courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics plus the course mathematics for economists (click for exemplary syllabi of recent first courses). In coming semesters, doctoral candidates deepen their knowledge in advanced courses. Topics courses cover subjects of the current research frontier and prepare for independent research. All these courses are listed in the online course catalogue of Bonn University:

Of course, doctoral candidates are welcome to join in the seminars and workshops of our partner institutions:
