ISSEM 2018: International Summer School in Economics and Management

September 17th - October 1nd, 2018

This year, the courses start on September 17th and end on September 28th. Some of the courses will take place in the faculty of Economics and some in the Hotel Habana Libre. The exams will be written on October 1nd in Havana. 

Almost every day there are activities for Cuban and German students and teachers.

Who can participate?

Students from all over the world can participate and are invited to apply. It is not an internal summer school of the Humboldt University.

In our 'moodle course', all participants (not only HU students) can register and therby get in touch with each other. In the beginning of August we will organise another information meeting in Berlin for the participants, this is a good possibility to get to know each other. 

Dates & Deadlines

There will be a meeting open to all interested during which more details about the application process and the Summer School will be given.
