“The curriculum was one of the reasons I chose CEU’s School of Public Policy. The variety of elective courses has allowed me to tailor the program to my professional focus. The debates, policy simulations and discussions have taught me a lot about current and emerging policy issues. Working with students and faculty from all over the world, I have also learnt a great deal about different cultures and contexts.”
