If you want a "Studienberatung", conversation concerning a Bachelor or master thesis, or a letter of recommendation please register with my secretary. She will provide you with a time slot.
- letter of recommendation for studies abroad, grants, application for master and Ph.D. programs
If you want a letter of recommendation from me you must have taken at least one course with me and should have been rather successful in that course. Prior to talking to me, you should send a cv and an excerpt of grades from your studies to me by email. Please explain in your letter what you are applying to. Note that I consided to write a letter of recommendation for you only if you are a student with a major in economics or if you are a student from another discipline who needs a letter to apply for a master program in economics.
- bachelor and master thesis
If you want to write your bachelor or master thesis with me, you should have taken electives in the area of microeconomics, preferably including a seminar. I supervise theses primarily on issues in industrial organization. The Bachelor thesis can be written in English or German.
