Student Community

The BSE's rigorous master's programs are geared towards students who are bright, curious, and motivated to excel. But between study sessions, our students benefit from all the essentials typically associated with student life: informal lectures and outside learning opportunities, sports and social events, a vibrant city to explore, and most of all: lasting relationships with classmates. 


Social Events

A few times each term, we organize social events to give students a chance to relax—and leave the library! Students, alumni, and professors are invited to participate in events such as picnics on campus and excursions to nearby nature parks or wineries.

Sports and Activities

In 2019, we held the fourth annual "futsal" (indoor football) tournament. Teams matched Master's students against alumni and faculty. Team Alumni won the tough final match against Team Econ! See photos on Flickr
