“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.

“It is not an exaggeration to say that CEU changed my life. Being exposed to great professors, not only from the economics department, helped me deepen my knowledge and structure of various economic and social phenomena. Thanks to the excellent training I received, CEU thus helped me to build my career, first in the central bank and now at the university. I hope that I will be able to pass at least the part of „CEU spirit“ on my students. Thank you CEU, I will never forget “

 “The feature of CEU Master Degree is huge self-learning -- a student should learn many things by him/herself, analyze it, and try to practice through homework or other practical tasks. Now this helps me to develop myself day-to-day, learning many new things outside work and trying to improve my results at work. CEU taught me how to think big, because my program "Economic policy on global markets" required wide thinking about trade-offs in economy, new approaches in public finance and trade.

Studying in the Economic Policy in Global Markets program gave me the essential set of skills to understand, evaluate and even make recommendations with respect to economic challenges that countries throughout the World are facing nowadays. Looking back, I realize that this experience has been a true transformation for me, a transformation from an uninformed citizen subject to populist claims and manipulations of the politicians to an informed and unbiased economist capable of making objective conclusions.
