MSc Economics: Highly sophisticated postgraduate program starts for the 5th time

Welcome Reception of Class 2012 - 2014

On Wednesday, Sept 19th, we had the honor to officially welcome our new MSc of Economics students. The Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) together with the Institute for Advanced Studies organized a Welcome Reception for the 12 new students at the TU Corner. Prof. Martens, Vice Director Continuing Education Center from the Vienna University of Technology, opened the Ceremony, followed by Prof. Keuschnigg, Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies. Both highlighted the importance of the program, the good collaboration between the two Institutions and - last but not least – our very successful graduates.

The Director of Graduate Studies, Christian Haefke, introduced the students who are characterized by a broad variety of educational backgrounds as well as nationalities.

On behalf of DI Stickler from the Austrian Lotteries Prof. Keuschnigg handed over the Austrian Lotteries Excellence Awards to two students from the 2011 – 2013 Master of Economics cohort for their academic achievements during their first years of studies: Joachim Hubmer and Bálint Szöke obtained the highest GPA in the core courses in the academic year 2011/2012 and therefore receive a scholarship sponsored by the Austrian Lotteries.

The teams of CEC/TU Vienna and IHS/Economics wish the new students good luck for the upcoming four semesters.
