Berlin Mathematical School

The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) is a joint graduate school of the three renowned math departments of the universities in Berlin: Free University, Technical University, and Humboldt University.The BMS is the newest asset in Berlin’s academic landscape. In October 2006, the BMS was awarded one of the 18 prestigious graduate school awards by the Excellence Committee of the German Federal Government for its innovative concept, its strong cross-disciplinary focus, and its outstanding teaching schedule tailored to the needs of students in an international environment. [ cf. Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft [http://www.dfg.de/en/research_funding/coordinated_programmes/excellence_initiative/graduate_schools/list/gsc_detail_14.html] ] The directors of the BMS are Jürg Kramer, Christof Schütte and Günter M. Ziegler.

Vision and mission

Besides striving for academic excellence, the BMS is actively pursuing the goals of internationality, gender equality, diversity, and ensuring a working environment that is accepting, liberal, and supportive for its students, faculty, and employees. The BMS is dedicated to making top-notch mathematical education available irrespective of race, class and gender. The goal is to reach an equal distribution of female and male students inside the BMS and therefore encourages female mathematicians to apply.

Cooperations

BMS students enjoy access to exclusive seminars, workshops and lectures in English not only at the participating universities but also at their academic partners: Berlin’s mathematical Research and Training Groups, the Max Planck Research schools, the DFG Research Center Matheon (Mathematics in Key Technologies), the Collaborative Research Center “Space – Time – Matter,” the ZUSE Institute Berlin (ZIB), and the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS).

Ph.D. in Mathematics at the BMS

The Ph.D. program at the BMS leads from a bachelor’s degree through an oral qualifying exam directly to a doctoral degree in four to five years.

Applicants who hold a bachelor degree, Vordiplom, or equivalent can enter the BMS Phase I, in which they complete five BMS Phase I courses on a Master’s level within 3 to 4 semesters. For students who are further advanced, part of the Phase I course requirements may be waived. Supervisors will be allocated according to the areas of interest given in the application.For entering straight into Phase II to immediately start the Ph.D. project, applicants are expected to have a Master’s degree or equivalent, or must pass the BMS Qualifying Exams and meet the regular admission requirements of the Berlin universities' Ph.D. programs. Phase II applicants are expected to name a supervisor in their application.

BMS Fridays

The BMS Friday is a weekly colloquium which takes place at the BMS Loft in the Urania in Berlin every Friday afternoon during term time. The BMS welcomes and invites scholars in mathematics. BMS Fridays also include seminars and workshops in the morning, as well as tea and cookies before each talk.
