Boards & Committees

Scientific board: The core faculty puts emphasis on a transparent organizational structure and efficient management of the graduate program. The graduate program is jointly organized and managed by the Scientific Board consisting of the program director (Joachim Winter) and his two deputies (Florian Englmaier and Andreas Roider).

Program Committee: For short-term decision-making, a program committee consisting of the Scientific board as well as student and women representatives convenes on a bi-monthly basis to provide managerial guidance.

Ongoing evaluation: To constantly improve the supervision structure, we will regularly conduct anonymous evaluations of the activities, in particular of each course offered as part of the curriculum. In addition, the graduate program’s board will annually discuss improvements to the program with the graduate students.

International Advisory Board: An International Advisory Board guides us in terms of setting and achieving our goals and those of our students. The board provides input on the graduate program’s training and research program for the following years. The members of the board evaluate our performance as part of the preparation of the renewal proposal for the 2017–2021 funding period. The board consists of highly distinguished scholars with extensive experience in organizing structured graduate education and in conducting research in EBE. We are pleased that the following scholars have agreed to serve on the graduate program's International Advisory Board: Ernst Fehr (University of Zurich), Ulrike Malmendier (University of California, Berkeley), Niko Matouschek (Northwestern University), Dirk Sliwka (University of Cologne), and Matthias Sutter (University of Innsbruck).
