The Graduate School of Economics, Finance, and Management (GSEFM) is in the process of establishing itself as one of the leading European centers for research-oriented doctoral education in the fields of economics, business administration and law. GSEFM is focusing on applied and interdisciplinary research of relevance to society as a whole. GSEFM constitutes an alliance between Goethe University Frankfurt, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and Darmstadt University of Technology.
GSEFM offers a rich palette of research-oriented graduate programs that feature the structure of top-quality Anglo-Saxon graduate programs, and add a unique interdisciplinary scope.
The GSEFM Ph.D. programs entail a two-year cycle of courses specifically designed for doctoral students. The course program covers the core quantitative-analytical methods employed in state of the art research, and also extends to discussing and questioning frontier research in specific areas of concentration. The structural elements of the doctoral programs extend beyond the course phase: GSEFM pays particular attention to a smooth transition from the course phase to the dissertation writing phase, inter alia through special seminars designed to get research on its way and transmitting research and presentation skills.
GSEFM is cooperating with decision makers from public institutions and private enterprises, to initiate and conduct joint research projects on issues of relevance to society as a whole. GSEFM Ph.D. program graduates are expected to find excellent global job opportunities in academia and research departments in the public as well as private sector; graduating from a top-tier Ph.D. program can also form the basis for a distinguished career in international organizations, politics or private enterprises.
Master ProgramsIn addition to its Ph.D.-Programs, GSEFM offers research oriented Master programs in Quantitative Economics, Quantitative Finance, Quantitative Management, Quantitative Marketing as well as Quantitative Economics and Law.
