Humboldt University Berlin (BSE) will unite Berlin‘s career development programs at the PhD and Postdoc levels in a single and unique structure. It will combine the program content of three pre-existing, very successful career development programs: (i) The doctoral programs DIW Graduate Center and the Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics & Management Science will unite to form a single doctoral program. (ii) The Berlin-wide postdoctoral program Berlin Economics Research Associates will join the doctoral program under the new roof of the BSE.
The Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics and Management Science (BDPEMS) from Berlin School of Economics has four tracks:
- Accounting and Finance
They are highly compatible with each other and allow numerous specializations. The program also provides a wide set of expertise in economic policy.
The doctoral program provides outstanding doctoral students with a vibrant, intensively networked research community and a training structure that will develop their talents in a unique combination of high-level academic and applied research. During the course phase of three semesters, students deepen their knowledge of economic theory, applied economics, business studies, econometrics, and economic policy. During the three-year research phase starting in the third semester, students write their doctoral theses while having the opportunity to apply their knowledge in the professional research environment that is provided in Berlin universities and research institutes
The postdoc program recruits its members from the international junior market for new PhD graduates. The program provides a mentoring program and multiple support structures for research activities, travel, and skills development of its members.
Both programs are connected to all major research activities of the participating institutions. A large number of research seminars, workshop series, masterclasses and short courses provide an abundance of new inputs.
The BSE rests on long-running efforts of a highly collegiate work environment in Berlin’s economic research institutions. Past success include a very strong list of placements. The alumni of the BSE’s predecessor programs already form a strong professional network.
