Advanced Studies Program



The Advanced Studies Program in International Economic Policy Research is since 1984 a 10-month program aimed at young Master graduates in economics and at economists with several years of professional experience or Ph.D candidates, who are seeking a career in international organizations, in economic policy making and management, or in academic institutions and think tanks. Internationally respected experts teach their area of specialization in intensive courses usually lasting one or two weeks, supplemented by seminars on current economic policy issues. If you time table does not allow you to participate to all courses, The Kiel Institute offers also the possibility of attending selected courses of its Advanced Studies Program.

"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)
