Andreas Pähler works now as a Quant Engineer at swissQuant Group, Zürich, Switzerland. He says this about the degree:

The Economics and Philosophy programme is a great choice if you are interested in economics (and know a bit about it) and if you are also interested in looking at and understanding economics (as a scientific activity or discipline) from the philosophy “observation deck”.

If you know how to find a Nash equilibrium, but you also wonder about how a Nash equilibrium helps us to explain the world or how we can use it when deciding on public policy, then I think you have come to the right place.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the programme. It was a great combination of mathematical problem-solving in the economics courses and reading, thinking, and writing in the philosophy courses. I have also gotten to know some of the coolest and most interesting people I have met in my life. I would not trade in the experience for anything else.”
