We welcome applications to the IMPRS-SPCE program once a year from mid-December to late February. The application procedure for the IMPRS-SPCE is conducted exclusively online. Speculative applications will not be considered.

Aiming to combine and develop the approaches of economic sociology, comparative and international political economy, and organization studies, the School’s research investigates the complex linkages between economic and social action.

The IMPRS-SPCE admits up to eight students a year. The ability to do scholarly work in English is a prerequisite for admission. We welcome students from Germany and abroad.

Based at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in the heart of southern Cologne (the Südstadt) and the University of Cologne, graduate students at the IMPRS-SPCE can start to explore Germany from their local Severin and Sülz neighborhoods.
