The Hertie School collaborates with the Berlin School of Economics, a joint programme with Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT), WZB Berlin Social Science Center and DIW Berlin (the German Institute for Economic Research). It provides a structured career development programme for junior economists.

The Berlin School of Economics PhD Program unites the successful Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics and Management Science (BDPEMS) and German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) Graduate Center programmes and incorporates the best of both in a single career development programme.

The Berlin School of Economics offers four tracks: PhD in Economics and three business tracks (PhD in Accounting, PhD in Finance and PhD in Management).

The Berlin School of Economics has a separate application process. The application deadline for October 2024 intake is on 11 February 2024, 11:59 p.m. (CET).
