Study Programme

The course programme is a structured curriculum that provides doctoral students with an outstanding training in the fields related to the IWH Research Theme "From Transition to European Integration". The programme comprises mandatory Frontiers Courses in the core fields of economics and optional required Special Courses in selected fields.

In the Doctoral Research Seminar (DRS) series, students have opportunity to regularly present and advocate their research to a broader audience and to obtain advices and hints for future work. Credit points are granted for each activity. Doctoral students are encouraged and supported to present their work at research conferences and participate in external summer schools and to take advantage of international research visits. For external conference presentations, doctoral students do earn credit points, and summer schools may substitute for Special Courses.

Courses Organised Jointly with CGDE

Since 2008, courses in Advanced Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Econometrics have been organized by CGDE partners. Only distinguished faculty with publications in top 30 journals are involved. They allow attracting distinguished researchers as lecturers from abroad by being organized as blocked courses and paying salaries customary in the market. In addition, an environment is created for intensive yet open discussions of cutting-edge research methods and approaches of general interest.
