What our students think

The MMBR program intrigued me from the moment I first saw it.

Its focus on deriving and implementing mathematical tools is highly useful for a deeper understanding of underlying economical concepts and allows for another layer of complexity.

Moreover I am able to really double down on my personal interests with the high degree of specialization and direct cooperation with the PhD Institute offered in the program.
