Zurich as the first address for a doctorate in economics
The goal: to bring outstanding young talents from all over the world to Zurich and thereby create independent young researchers and innovation drivers for our society, who can secure academic positions at the world’s best universities and leadership roles in institutions such as central banks or in local and international organizations. This in turn helps to position Switzerland and Zurich as internationally leading business and research locations.
Impact: the potential of your donation
The young talents of today are the leaders of tomorrow. With your donation to the PhD program, you make it possible to bring the best young researchers to Zurich. As a result of the competitive and elaborate application process, only 12 to 15 people out of several hundred applicants receive one of the coveted places each year. You can therefore be sure that your scholarship contribution will go to the leading minds of tomorrow. So that the coming generation can also tackle the global challenges of our time with sound knowledge.
