We have founded the Goethe Graduate Student Association in Economics (GUSA) as an information sharing platform for MSc and PhD students in Economics, Finance and Law. On one side, the platform should allow program participants to identify fellow students across years with similar research interest, as well as to stimulate discussion and possible co-work. On the other, we want to give external and interested-in-applying colleagues the opportunity to have a look into student profiles, their fields of interest and their cultural and educational background, so as to allow for a clearer picture when applying for the PhD or MSc tracks offered in Frankfurt.
