The course programme is a structured curriculum that provides doctoral students with an outstanding training. The programme comprises mandatory First-Year 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.
