Information about reference letters

Please note that Prof. Puppe will unfortunately not be able to provide detailed reference letters until further notice. For a simple reference letter please contact our secretary via E-Mail with your current CV and the Certificate of Courses and Grades: yvonne masino does-not-exist.kit edu. Please consider that issuing a reference letter may take up to four weeks.

The Chair of Prof. Dr. Clemens Puppe can provide letters of reference for scholarships and other universities.

For students, who completed the course "VWL I – Mikroökonomie," we provide a simple reference letter based on the grade received in the exam. If you need such kind of simple reference letter, please contact our office in due time (at least 4 weeks prior to your deadline): yvonne masino does-not-exist.kit edu
