The Joint Ph.D. Program between Chile and Germany
The PhD-Program “Agricultural Economics” (J-PPAE) is jointly offered by the Georg-August-Universität of Goettingen (Germany) and Universidad de Talca (Chile).
By taking part in one of our programs, our PhD-students benefit from the international very well cross-linked Agricultural Faculty and its excellent reputation. Our research-oriented PhD-program “Agricultural Economics” is dedicated to combining theoretical knowledge of agricultural topics with practical solutions. We offer to get a very well-distinguished education in agribusiness and its neighboring fields of study.
Besides this, Göttingen does not only have a university, Göttingen is a university, so it has been said for the past 270 years. That means: every third resident downtown is a student, the city is lively, young and not too big - everything is close by.
In Göttingen you don't only meet friends in the lecture hall, you get in contact with them on the streets of downtown, at concerts, in the theatre, at sports and in the numerous cafes and bars. Studying in Göttingen is traditionally internationally oriented. The motto is themed "studying while well taken care of". Göttingen is a lovable city, in which the ground stone has been laid for many careers.
