ISSEM 18th International Summer School in Economics and Management

2 week program in Havana, Cuba: September 20th - October 4th, 2021 (tbc)

ISSEM 2021

Some of the courses will take place in the Faculty of Economics of La Universidad de La Habana and some in the Hotel Habana Libre. Both are located in Vedado and in walking distance from each other.

Who can participate?

We appreciate applications from students from all over the world. The ISSEM is not an internal summer school of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

As part of your application you need to send us: 
- a filled out application form
- letter of motivation
- transcript of records
- CV

Please send all of the above (in English) as one conjoined PDF to our e-mail address:

Once admission has started, we will open a facebook group 'ISSEM 202X', as well as the 'moodle course' ISSEM202X, where all participants (not only HU students) can register and get in touch with each other.

<< Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 Disclaimer >>

-- As all larger events, also ISSEM 2021 conditiones on the actual COVID-19 situation in September 2021. If travel restrictions stay in place, we will need to postpone or cancel the Summer School or move to deliver classes online.  All arrangements undertaken by applicants or participants (like reserving flights or accommodation) will be on their own risk. We will inform you in time whether ISSEM 2021 can take place as planned. --
