Vladimir Yankov (MA Econ 2005): Senior Economist, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Washington, DC, USA
"The Central European University (CEU) immerses you in a vibrant academic environment that prepares you to become a citizen of the world. The combination of world-class mentors and amazingly smart, compassionate, and inspiring classmates creates a unique atmosphere of shared learning and growth. The rigorous program of the Economics department and the support of my classmates and mentors inspired me to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Economics. Years after graduating, the most valuable gift that CEU offers is the expanding network of alumni friends with whom you really feel like close family."
