    • The Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences, founded in 2007, at the University of Mannheim is classified as one of the best in Germany for its distinct profile and international approach. It is housed in a magnificent Baroque palace located in Mannheim, in the province of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It offers graduate students the opportunity to pursue coursework and research in a diverse array of fully funded graduate programs in 11 different disciplines of business, economic and social sciences.

      The aim of these doctoral studies is to promote a distinguished PhD experience by training highly skilled professionals who can undertake research within academic institutions, think tanks and research centers, as well as provide consultancy and services at the organizational, political and governmental level both nationally and internationally.

      The program offers dual layered training: First, the development of a common background through structured training in empirical and quantitative methods across a wide range of fields. Second, a more personalized mentoring in line with the chosen specialization by highly experienced supervisors, and the possibility to apply ideas, methods and approaches to research across the boundaries of the economic and social sciences.

      It is funded by the German Universities Excellence Initiative, an initiative by the German federal and state governments to promote top-level research in Germany.
