Compelling for its strong empirical focus, the Ph.D. Program in Economics offers a two-year cycle of doctoral-level courses developed specifically to transmit a rigorous methodological framework in the three core areas of economics (microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics), complemented by studies of the normative and historical foundations of economics, and followed by courses designed to expose students to the research frontier in a variety of fields of specialization (development and international economics, econometrics, finance, law and economics, macroeconomics, management, marketing, and microeconomics). As the largest program within GSEFM, the overarching objective of the Ph.D. Program in Economics is to produce outstanding economists capable of taking leading positions in academia or serving as experts in international institutions, government, and the private sector.
Compelling for its in-depth coverage of both issues in asset pricing and corporate finance, the Ph.D. Program in Finance offers a two-year cycle of doctoral-level courses developed specifically to transmit a rigorous methodological framework in the core areas of finance as well as selected core areas of economics (econometrics and either microeconomics or macroeconomics). Students in the Ph.D. Program in Finance can select from a broad range of second-year field courses designed to expose the students to the research frontier in their fields of specialization, including but not limited to Finance. Graduates from the Ph.D. Program in Finance are expected to find excellent job opportunities in both academia and the financial industry.
In the Ph.D. Program in Marketing students learn to combine advanced quantitative and analytical skills with marketing theory, to apply these to real-world challenges posed by industry partners, with the goal of developing marketing theory and practice to a higher level. The Ph.D. Program in Marketing offers a two-year cycle of doctoral-level courses developed to convey a rigorous methodological and theoretical framework across the areas of marketing, management, microeconomics, econometrics, mathematical methods, and the normative foundations of business administration. In the second year, students can select from a variety of second-year field courses designed to expose the students to the research frontier in their fields of specialization and to facilitate the students’ own research. Past graduates have joined companies such as BASF, Commerzbank, GfK, or McKinsey. Academic placements have included Frankfurt School of Finance, London Business School, Technische Universität Darmstadt, University of Technology Sydney, and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
After completing their coursework, students in the Ph.D. Programs at GSEFM are expected to carry out innovative research, gaining immensely from an environment which includes structured interaction with their peers as well as with faculty, includes participation in research networks either organized by or contributed to by GSEFM faculty members, includes conference presentations and discussions, as well as research stays with faculty elsewhere who are leaders in a student's area of research. Students benefit not only from GSEFM's location in Continental Europe's financial hub, but also from the faculty's linkages to policy-making institutions such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the Deutsche Bundesbank, giving them the chance to engage in frontier research on substantive issues.
The primary objective of the Finance PhD Program is to educate students of exceptional promise to become outstanding researchers and university-level teachers in the field of finance. Graduates of the Program must have a thorough knowledge of the fundamental concepts and theories in finance, an understanding of financial instruments and markets, and an ability to use financial data to analyze models and evaluate financial decisions.
A student admitted to the Finance PhD program is expected to have excellent aptitude, motivation, and preparation for rigorous post-masters-level study in finance. During the first year in the program, the student takes the graduate level course sequence in microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, research tool courses, PhD level courses in theoretical and empirical asset pricing and theoretical corporate finance.
The research-oriented Master Programs in Quantitative Economics, Quantitative Finance, Quantitative Management, Quantitative Marketing, and Law and Quantitative Economics, collectively called MSQ Programs, are unique in that their first-year students participate in the same set of analytically rigorous and quantitatively oriented courses in economics, finance, law and economics, management, and/or marketing that are taken by the first-year Ph.D. Program students. Students who complete the first year of the MSQ Program with strong success have the option and are strongly encouraged to join the GSEFM Ph.D. Program in their area of concentration. Other students in their second year in the MSQ Program have the option to enroll in courses with an emphasis on policy issues and/or on issues of implementation. Students leaving GSEFM with a terminal Master degree will be in a strong position to serve as analytical experts in international institutions, government, or the private sector.
Normally, at the end of the first year, the student sits for the Microeconomics Qualifying Examination in the Economics department. The Microeconomics Qualifying Examination is the second area (i.e. minor are) field examination for PhD finance students. During the summer of the end of the first year, the student takes the Asset Pricing and Corporate Finance Qualifying Examinations during July.
In the second year of the program, the student takes advanced PhD-level courses in asset pricing and corporate finance, the finance research reading course as well as research tools courses in econometrics and statistics.
This program (that is part of the Research Training Program "Law and Economics of Money and Finance") is targeted at those who wish to specialize in research at the interface of law and economics, and offers a two-year interdisciplinary course program. In the light of the interdisciplinary approach, a variety of courses on Law and Economics taught by professors from Goethe University as well as renowned international scholars are offered. The course program also features a number of courses from the Ph.D. Program in Economics and the Ph.D. Program in Finance, combining these with law and economics course offerings, and thus enabling students to work in interdisciplinary research teams at the interfaces of law, economics, and finance. In addition to the course program, the research work is accompanied by doctoral workshops, conferences and seminars to enable the students to further their knowledge in specialized areas and to discuss their work with renowned national and international scholars. The Doctorate / Ph.D. Program in Law and Economics enables its graduates to take on challenging positions in academia or to serve as international experts specifically on issues related to market regulation.
