Why I chose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS
I decided for the PhD program at the GESS because it equips me with the necessary skills to conduct independent research. Moreover, the possible choice from plenty of courses to focus on one’s own interest makes this program attractive to me. Besides, the conditions for studying, the exchange with fellow students or the close contact with researchers, create a prolific research environment. The positive experience during my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, where I benefited from the high quality of teaching at the University of Mannheim, convinced me to participate in the PhD program of the GESS.
