RGS Welcome Ceremony 2012
On November 8th 2012 the RGS Faculty and some of its sponsors (e.g. Stiftung Mercator GmbH) met in the rooms of the RGS Econ to welcome the new cohort and honor those RGS Students who achieved a doctorate in 2012. Prof. Schmidt started the ceremony with a warm welcome to the new students who just started their first year in the RGS Econ. After this, Prof. Leininger individually introduced every new student to the faculty. According to the tradition of the RGS Econ, each new student received a RGS Econ teacup and a RGS Econ T-shirt. This year's graduates of the Ruhr Graduate School were honored by Prof. Schmidt and Prof. Leininger with a reference to their work and a certificate. The evening ended with a small get-together where the faculty and sponsors had a chance to meet and chat.
