“For me, studying at CEU has brought together theoretical knowledge and real-life situations and data. The latter is especially important since it is often neglected in academic education. The combination of theory and practical application has helped me gain a completely new and more focused view on economic issues. What I really appreciate about the Department of Economics is how we deal with one another. We have very open and deep discussions in class. I have even had disagreements with professors but I don’t feel that it’s a bad thing, rather an opportunity for genuine discussion with a teaching partner.”

Central European University’s Department of Economics is a research-oriented department with an international faculty holding PhDs from some of the best universities in the world. Members of the department include leading international experts at the frontiers of international research in areas such as trade, networks and behavioral economics.
