BGSE celebrates its 20th anniversary

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 Economic Department and an impressive network of national and international partners such as the cluster of excellence ECONtribute: Markets and Public Policy, Collaborative Research Center 224, Research Training Group 2281 “The Macroeconomics of Inequality”, briq - Institute on Behavior & Inequality, the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics and 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 on July, 12 2019 with invited alumni, students, colleagues and friends of the BGSE at the Bundeskunsthalle (Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4, 53113 Bonn). The program can be found here.
