Advanced Studies Program


The 10-Month Advanced Studies Program in International Economic Policy Research (ASP) brings together every year since 1984 a small multicultural group of approx. 20 smart and motivated students (with a Master degree or already Ph.D candidates) and young professionals to the Kiel Institute.

Internationally renowned professors from leading universities teach the group their area of specialization in intensive one or two week courses. This rigorous and up to date academic teaching by prominent professors is unique in the world and is reinforced by an outstanding alumni network and access to the resources of a leading Research Institute.

The 10-Month ASP program curriculum develops successful and thoughtful economists in an international environment who are seeking a career in international organizations, in economic policy making and management, or in academic institutions. We are looking for participants who would like to join an environment made to think together and believe that independent and rigorous international economic research is part of the solution to urgent global Problems.

"I have learned a lot about what’s currently going on in different fields of research. This helped me shape my interests for the upcoming PhD research. After my master’s, I didn’t really feel qualified to make the decision whether to do a PhD or work in the private sector right away."

Felix C. (PhD candidate, European University Institute, Florence)


"Basically I was introduced to the ASP by my supervisor and I saw the opportunity to upgrade my knowledge of international economics, my English and to network with students/researchers from other universities/countries that are dealing with similar research topics."

Nataša V. (PhD candidate, Ljubljana University)
