Student Body

About 90 students participate in the BDPEMS and the BSE PhD Program at the moment; about 33% of them are internationals and about 42% are female. The majority of our intake holds a master's degree in economics or business, but we also supervise graduates with previous degrees in mathematics, physics, engineering, law, or psychology. What all participants have in common is that they have achieved great merits and are well trained for successful academic work.
