“I grew so much this year. Before CEU, I aspired to study the U.S. and Europe, but at the department I learned that I would like to contribute more to where I come from: Central Asia. Thanks to the program, I gained a better understanding of my own region. Furthermore, without a shadow of a doubt, this one-year MA program also allowed me to refine and improve in areas that are fundamental in today’s job market.”
