Excellence Initiative

Berlin Mathematical School (BMS)

Mathematics of the World

The three Berlin universities are brought together in the "Berlin Mathematical School" (BMS). The school will offer outstanding students from around the world the combined potential of internationally accomplished mathematics departments. One program of courses leads from a bachelor's degree or equivalent to a qualifying exam and the right of admission to a doctoral program in two years.
Four Leibniz Prize recipients are counted among the school's internationally reknowned professors. The doctoral program leads to a doctoral degree from one of the Berlin graduate schools of mathematics within two to three years.
The BMS builds upon Berlin's strong networks of research and cooperation in mathematics. This enables BMS students to work at projects such as the DFG research center MATHEON "Mathematics for Key Technologies" or Humboldt-Universität's collaborative research center 647 "Space - Time - Matter."
