"The Economics Department at CEU runs an excellent and well-funded PhD program. The level of courses is on par with leading European universities, teaching load is limited, and there are many opportunities for research assistantships. The weekly seminar series features invited speakers from the best departments in the world. The faculty is accessible, supportive, and its strong focus on research provides an inspiring environment for PhD students. Peers are great, and so is Budapest as a city. I can't think of another place in Europe where I'd rather spent my graduate years."

I believe I made the right choice when choosing the CEU doctoral program and the learning experience was very enriching. The faculty and my class were excellent and very cooperative and supportive in all aspects. The University also provided a lot of support throughout my studies, both regarding finances and the overall educational environment, including the library and the class selection.

“Studying at CEU was an amazing experience. We had the chance to learn from the best economics professors while we were in an exceptionally international environment where long term friendships were made. It was a hard and challenging 2-year program but it was definitely worth it as I am sure that I would not be in my current position without having the opportunity to study at CEU. Thank you!

“CEU has been a great experience for me both professionally and personally. I have received quality education that is highly valued around the world but I have also gained generic skills that allowed me to place myself easily in the industry. During my time at CEU I have met people from many different countries who became my good friends and with whom I stayed in touch ever after. CEU is not just a university to me, CEU is a place where I grew and matured into a self-confident adult well prepared for life."

I had a pleasure of being one of the first students to attend the CEU which was located in Prague at that time. Having graduated from University of Łódź  with MA in Economics, I went to Prague to deepen my economic knowledge.
