My favorite part about the program is the combination of professional and personal development within a creative and cooperative working environment. For me, choosing Munich was about the faculty doing research here. Since the beginning, I am involved in fantastic state-of-the-art research and I have met great visiting researchers from top programs in the world. On a personal level, living in one of the coolest cities in Europe is another bonus. There is always an activity for any taste, and finding yourself in nature is just a matter of minutes. I especially love the mountains surrounding the city, which offer unforgettable hiking and skiing experiences. I highly recommend the MGSE to students interested in spending the week doing great microeconomic research, and the weekends in the Alps!
I am genuinely happy that I chose to study at Munich Graduate School of Economics. It has contributed a lot to me academically and personally. After obtaining my bachelor's degree in Turkey, I knew that I wanted to learn more about economics. Therefore, I applied to a few master's programs throughout Europe, but MGSE was my clear favorite. Luckily, I got accepted for a master's program here. I am happy that it has turned out even better than my expectations. The curriculum links theory and practice very well, and it also involves many possibilities to carry hands-on research. Also, the faculty members are easily reachable and very supportive. On top of all, Munich is an excellent city for students with a great social life.
