Welcome to the Bonn Graduate School of Economics (BGSE)

The Bonn Graduate School of Economics (BGSE) invites ambitious students from around the world to join our graduate programs in economics.

At the BGSE, you will have the chance to study and do research, entirely in English, in a supportive and intellectually demanding environment. We foster a cooperative team spirit among our student body.

The BGSE pursues research activities in the following five research areas:

  • microeconomic theory
  • management and applied microeconomics
  • financial economics
  • macroeconomics and public economics
  • econometrics and statistics

Most of our doctoral students receive grants to cover living expenses, as well as their own office space. Many graduates of our doctoral program are now in leading academic positions.

"A big advantage of the BGSE is the financial support and office space it offers to its doctoral students. Moreover, the high degree of cooperation between fellow students, regular interactions with professors and postdocs and demanding course work, all together enables one to make the most out of their studies and research."
