“CEU gave me the essential skills to understand, evaluate and make recommendations on economic challenges that countries throughout the world are facing. Looking back, the experience has been a true transformation for me, from an uninformed citizen susceptible to populist claims and manipulation by politicians to an informed and unbiased economist capable of making objective conclusions. This was thanks to the outstanding professors who guided us through this journey.

"My professors inspired me to continue my studies and become an academic labor economist. The program's challenging nature helped me to easily get through the first years of my PhD at UC Berkeley, while CEU’s friendly environment is reflected by the numerous “mini-reunions” we have held with fellow students at different parts of the world. CEU and the Department are treasures – the responsibility to live up to the opportunity they opened up for me still motivates me every day at work."

"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 from politics with a business BA. At CEU, thanks to its openness and flexibility, I discovered the different areas of analytics and data science and successfully shifted my focus to become the professional I am today. CEU equipped me with the knowledge and confidence to successfully compete on the job market, and to always keep pushing myself further.

"The blend of high-level academic preparation and diverse social interactions make CEU a unique institution. The MA in Economics got students with different backgrounds to achieve an excellent knowledge in modern economics, comparable to material covered in top US PhD programs. Students work together, establish friendships and embark on life-changing career paths."
