"My years at CEU had a significant impact on my life, growing me both as a person and as a professional. I started this intellectual adventure coming form politics with a business BA. In CEU, -thanks to the openness and flexibility of my department-, I discovered the different areas of analytics and data science and have successfully shifted my focus to this exciting (and lucrative) field, essentially becoming the professional I am today. CEU have equipped me with the knowledge and confidence necessary to successfully compete on the job market and to always keep pushing myself further. Besides professional development, CEU is also a great place to meet unique and great people, making inspiring and valuable friends for life. Cannot recommend it enough."
