Berlin School of Economics

Since September 2019, the "Berlin School of Economics" (BSE) offers an outstanding European-wide training program for doctoral and postdoctoral students in economics. It emerges from three successful predecessor structures and is a cooperation of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin with the following additional partner institutions: the German Institute for Economic Research, the European School of Management and Technology, the Hertie School, the University of Potsdam, and the Social Science Research Center Berlin. Currently 65 professors cover a wide range of courses at the eight participating institutions. Numerous special professorships also enable young economists to pursue projects in applied and policy-related research. Another advantage for participants is the opportunity to regularly meet with internationally renowned economists who are invited to Berlin in the context of master classes and workshops. By bundling and structuring the diverse offerings of the economic sciences, BSE significantly strengthens the visibility of Berlin as a center of science.
