Master Study Program at the Wayne State University Detroit

The Chair of Macroeconomics at the FAU is in close contact with the Wayne State University in Detroit. Every year, a small number of Master students are sent (from early September to the end of April) for two semesters to the Wayne State University to acquire the American master’s degree. The special tuition conditions may be granted due to a cooperation agreement. Applications for grants can be supported.

If you are interested in this master program, please register at the Chair of Macroeconomics at FAU the autumn previous to the year you are interested in attending this program.

There are information events organized by the Chair of Macroeconomics for the first year students of the MSE and for the International Day.

More information about the WSU can be seen in this presentation here.

If you want more information about Wayne State University in Detroit, you can contact the following person:

However, please try to collect your questions (jointly with others who are also interested) and do not bombard him with e-mails.

International studies in different Universities

In the context of his research area (see EconPapers) and as coordinator of the network „Ensuring Economic and Employment Stability“, the head of the chair is naturally in contact with various international institutions and their representatives.

In principle, the support is possible with self-organized abroad. It is, however, the principle of self-initiative. Sign up only at the chair if you have a relatively accurate idea of which university you would like to study in and if there is a link between the institution and the Chair of Macroeconomics at FAU (for example, if a Co-author is conducting any research at the University or the institution is part of the EES-network).

Students of Economics and students who have already completed specialization courses at the department are given priority. Grades on the previous units are taken into consideration for priority.
