Besides this, Göttingen does not only have a university, Göttingen is a university, so it has been said for the past 270 years. That means: every third resident downtown is a student, the city is lively, young and not too big – everything is close by.


In Göttingen you don’t only meet friends in the lecture hall, you get in contact with them on the streets of downtown, at concerts, in the theatre, at sports and in the numerous cafes and bars. Studying in Göttingen is traditionally internationally oriented. The motto is themed “studying while well taken care of”. Göttingen is a lovable city, in which the ground stone has been laid for many careers.

Objectives of the program:

The application of economic theory to problems of international agribusiness, international trade, market and policy analysis, farm management, marketing and rural development

Carrying out relevant applied agricultural economic research in cooperation with leading research institutes and key agricultural stakeholders in Latinamerica and Europe.

Providing training in cutting-edge methods of quantitative and qualitative analysis Imparting the skills required to publish results in international journals.

With regard to the PhD-program we have to give the advice, that we can`t offer an own scholarship to PhD-students! But we willingly support in search and application for a sponsorship.
