Welcome to the Berlin School of Economics

The Berlin School of Economics (BSE) unites Berlin‘s career development programs for economists at the PhD and Postdoc levels in a single and unique structure. It combines two pre-existing, very successful career development programs: the Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics and Management Science (BDPEMS) and the Berlin Economics Research Associates (BERA) program. The following major institutions active in economics research in Berlin and beyond cooperate within the BSE:
