Overview

Starting in April 2005 the International Research Training Group (internationales Graduiertenkolleg) EBIM offers a structured graduate program in the field of Quantitative Economics. In cooperation with the Ecole Doctorale d´Economie of the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, the program is oriented towards highest international standards and is taught by a faculty of distinguished researchers in Bielefeld and Paris as well as foreign experts. All courses are offered in English. A stay of at least 6 months at the Partner university in Paris is mandatory. Students are involved in active research and participate in at least one of four topical research projects pursued within EBIM. A number of activities facilitate the vivid exchange of ideas and discussions among students and between students and faculty at both partner universities. The aim of the program is to prepare graduates for successful careers in academia, business and the public service. After a successful review of the program by the German Science Foundation (DFG) in 2009, DFG funding of EBIM has been extended until 2014. The program is carried out in close cooperation with the Bielefeld Graduate School of Economics and Management (BIGSEM) - in particular, the course program taken by EBIM students coincides with the BiGSEM curriculum.

for one or two short sessions, devoted to seminars on special topics and student presentations.
Such sessions provide students with information about current research subjects and associated supervisors.
It is good opportunity to meet doctoral students from other European universities and to start or to deepen
joint work beyond the frontiers.

Three students from Bielefeld can participate at the conference . If you are interested, please contact Nikolai Brandt
(nbrandt@uni-bielefeld.de) as soon as possible but no later than March 15th.
