PROMISE FRANK EJIOFOR / NIGERIA / Department of Political Science

“Thanks to the academic environment the department offers – a milieu of intellectual freedom, critical deliberation and ingenuity – I graduated well-versed in understanding various political conundrums. With meaningful friendships across the globe, thought-provoking seminars and lectures, and first-rate supervision, I now feel much more prepared for leading a fulfilling life than I was before studying at CEU.”
