Why I chose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS

The University of Mannheim is renowned for its high quality research and teaching and is well connected to important research institutes such as the Centre for European Economic Research. I chose the GESS, since it is an excellent fit to my academic background and the flexibility of its taxation track allows me to tailor the programme to my specific interests.
