Doctoral students are financed by a scholarship during the first and the second year (1.200 €/month) of their studies. After the two year course phase, students are either funded by a continuation scholarship or teaching/research assistantships at the University of Mannheim. Students are also encouraged to actively pursue external funding options themselves.
The highly regarded doctoral program enrolls an average of 15 students each year and comprises 30% of internationals in the students’ body. The faculty is dedicated to anchoring all teaching and research firmly in the core disciplines of Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics. The first year of the program lays the critical foundation necessary for later work in field courses and dissertation and paves a path for the students to work in intense collaboration with our dynamic and outstanding faculty to learn the craft of research. This occurs both in theoretical projects and in empirical fields, where learning-by-doing transfers information about data sets, research strategy, and econometric tools.
Our graduates have undertaken distinguished careers in academics, industry, and government. They are currently enriching some of the best departments and research facilities worldwide as professors, assistant professors or post-docs.
