EGEI 2013 – 2014

Participating in the EGEI programme was one of the best choices I have made in my life, both on an academic and personal level. The programme strikes a good balance between courses that give you an advanced general background in economics and more specific courses on European economic and globalisation issues. I am currently pursuing a PhD in economics and I found EGEI an excellent preparation for a career in academics. But aside from the highly rewarding academic and professional experience, I have nothing but great personal memories from the programme. Studying and living in different countries and cultures, meeting like-minded people from all over the world made my EGEI year a truly unique, once-in-a-life-time and highly enriching experience.
