MGSE Welcomes 2017 Cohort
The MGSE and the Department of Economics would like to give a warm welcome to our new doctoral students of the 2017 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 Welcome Week in the first week of October was opened with personal welcome words of MGSE representatives, followed by a Colloquium organized by current MGSE students, where they presented their ongoing projects.
In the evening of October 6, the MGSE Opening and Award Ceremony was held including a well-received keynote lecture on "Creative Destruction and The Measurement of Growthy" by Professor Philippe Aghion, Ph.D. from the College de France and the London School of Economics.
A guided tour in 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 7 through the Meisinger Schlucht and Kloster Andechs provided the possibility for all MGSE students to get acquainted in an informal atmosphere.
