Economy and Society in the Focus
On this Graduate School
The Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) offers interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs in empirical and quantitative methods and their application to the economic and social sciences. The GESS is organized into three centers: the centers for business, economics, and the social sciences. The internationally recruited young scientists are trained in a unique research and teaching environment. On the one hand they benefit from the school’s focus on empirical and quantitative methods common to all disciplines. On the other hand they receive substantial training in their own discipline according to highest international standards. This also stimulates the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. The training of doctoral students is conducted by the internationally renowned faculties of the economic and social sciences and by scientists from leading cooperating institutions.
