The Quantitative Economics and Finance programme from University of Konstanz is open to highly motivated graduates with an outstanding Master's degree or equivalent in economics or business economics.
For graduates of related fields and economics graduates requiring an advanced background in economic theory or econometrics, we offer a preparatory year before access to the programme.
The goal of the programme is twofold. To provide students with an advanced knowledge of the newest theoretical concepts and quantitative methods of economics and finance, and to give students proficiency in the programme's highly relevant and scientifically productive research fields: finance, labour economics and public economics.
This training opens up a broad spectrum of research possibilities for doctoral students and equips them with the skills to undertake a doctoral thesis in line with the highest internationally recognised standards
