Further information on the advantages of studying Economics at LMU Munich, as well as career possibilities for economists, can be found in our Department Brochure (in German).

Moreover, Munich is one of the most attractive places for studying in Germany. The capital of Bavaria offers a huge range of cultural attractions and entertainment.  Being located close to the stunningly beautiful Bavarian lakes and Alps, it is also a great place for sport. These factors help explain why Munich is frequently ranked as one of the best cities in the world to live in.
