MEPS in a nutshell: Why MEPS
The masters program has a strong international focus, it explicitly addresses an international audience and is therefore taught (apart from some non-obligatory courses) in English. It is a four-semester program beginning in winter (October) semester.
The academic faculty of the Department of Economics at the University of Siegen is not only very active and well-established in the national and international academic community, but is also highly committed and motivated to teach its students up-to-date economic knowledge in an accessible fashion. For quality assurance the MEPS program was accredited by the German agency AQAS (www.aqas.de) on November 22, 2011.
In addition, living in Siegen offers many valuable virtues to students. The City of Siegen provides all the advantages of a medium-sized town such as low costs of living and a high recreational value. At the same time it offers all the opportunities of a metropolitan area since it is located in the neighbourhood of three major German economic centres, namely the Rhine-Main-area, the Cologne-Bonn-area and the Ruhr-area.
