Graduate program “Evidence-Based Economics

The graduate program “Evidence-Based Economics” (EBE) is a joint undertaking of the Universities of Munich, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Regensburg and Würzburg generously funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria. During the course phase of the program (the first two semesters) students will generally be based in Munich. Thereafter, students will be based at the principal advisor’s institution.

The objective of the graduate program is to train doctoral students so that they can work at the frontier of theory-guided, evidence-based economics. Integrating theory, empirical methods, and policy analysis in both training and research of students is, in our view, the main innovation of this graduate program.

Our graduate program focuses on an integrated methodological approach, and it allows for substantive applications from different fields in economics while closely cooperating with firms, non-profit organizations, research institutions, and leading scholars worldwide, both in training and research supervision.
