"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 and the support of my classmates and mentors inspired me to pursue a PhD 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."
