Board Members

The Cologne Graduate School in Management, Economics and Social Sciences is led by the CGS Board. The Board consists of the Academic Directors of the doctoral study programmes in Management, Economics and Social Sciences and three addtional professors. Speakers of collaborating graduate schools, e.g. IMPRS, and the CGS manager are also members of the Board.

The major task of the CGS Board is safeguarding good standards of graduate education in the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences. For example, the board is responsible for doctoral education and the course program of the Faculty. In addition, the Board decides on the selection of candidates for the CGS scholarships.

Regular meetings of the CGS Board with the Doctoral Council of the Faculty ensure direct communication in the assessment of doctoral students’ needs.
