The Master’s Program in Economics and Management Science (MEMS) is designed to give students the knowledge, skills and methods necessary for critical and successful future involvement in the worlds of economics and business. The international orientation of our program gives students the understanding necessary for engagement on an international level.

In offering this program, the School of Business and Economics draws on numerous international contacts, offering the knowledge and experience of the German and foreign academics who constitute the school’s teaching staff. The primary emphasis of our program is on teaching quantitative methods of economic analysis, applied to Advanced Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, Industrial Organization, Public Economics, Banking and Finance, Entrepreneurship, International Management, Marketing Management and Organization Theory.

The language of instruction in compulsory modules is English. Non-compulsory modules are offered in either English or German. It is possible to complete the entire program in English, but, in order to obtain the maximum benefit from the program, participants are encouraged to learn German. The program should be completed within four semesters.

We admit approximately 55 students each year. Currently, about twenty per cent of the participants are German.



Not surprisingly, you will spend a lot of your time doing what you came here for, i.e. studying. There are quite a few facilities at HU that will make your student life easier and your studies more efficient. It all starts with familiarizing yourself with the MEMS Program Structure and determining what courses to take. You should also probably check out the German academic calendar, which may differ widely from what you are used to in your home country.

Unfortunately, there are exams to think about - you should follow the link to learn how to properly register for exams and where to inform yourself about them. If all this is not enough for you, there is also an option to take German or orther foreign languages at the Sprachenzentrum, but it is important to point out that language courses do not count on your transcript for any of the Masters degrees.

Just follow the links here and you will have a good start on learning to survive student life in MEMS!



Different to other study programs at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, all students apply to MEMS through our inhouse online application portal at http://admission.mastersprogram.de. You can find more information about the pre-requisites and the application process here:



The School of Business and Economics prides itself not only on academic excellence but also on producing well-rounded graduates. Therefore with roughly one third of our student body coming from abroad, the "Humboldt Family" is one of the most important anchors we offer our students. The way we help you to succeed within this program is by providing a good study/social life balance in the city of Berlin. Germany’s capital is one of the most exciting cities in the world and no doubt has something to offer everyone who comes. As course work can be quite intense, our students organize social activities to make sure you have ample opportunities to unwind with your fellow classmates. Assimilation into university life is an important first step towards succeeding in the program and every effort is made to ensure an easy integration into the school, the university, and the city.
