MGSE Welcomes 2016 Cohort
The MGSE and the Department of Economics would like to give a warm welcome to our new doctoral students of the 2016 cohort! We are excited to start working with these promising and outstanding young researchers and wish them all the best in the years to come.
The four-day Welcome Week was opened with personal welcome words of MGSE and GRK representatives, followed by a Colloquium organized by current MGSE students, where they presented their ongoing projects.
In the evening of October 7, the Opening Ceremony was held in the solemn atmosphere of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, including a well-received kenote lecture on "Recruiting and Motivating Agents for Public Service Delivery" by Professor Oriana Bandiera, Ph.D. from The London School of Economics.
A guided tour through the charming university quarter of Schwabing helped our new students who came from different and international backgrounds to get familiar with their new working environment. An informal hiking trip on October 8 to the Wendelstein provided the possibility for all MGSE students to get acquainted in an informal atmosphere.
