As Germany’s only Cluster of Excellence in Economics and neighboring disciplines, we assign top priority to the professional and personal development of both academic and administrative staff.
Our Cluster is committed to the compatibility of family and career as well as the career development of young talents. Both universities are certified as family-oriented universities and have their own dual career program. Also, both universities maintain their own childcare facilities on their campuses and the Cluster cooperates with private childcare providers. For our young talents, our Cluster has its own early career research program, the Young ECONtribute Program (YEP).
