As summer slides into fall, new PhD and MA students eagerly prepare to start their studies at CERGE-EI. This year, we are pleased to welcome 46 new incoming students from across the world as they embark on their graduate studies here.
Some will be students for several years as they pursue their doctoral degree in economics, while the Masters of Applied Economics students will receive their degree in one year. But whether they are here for only one year or for several, CERGE-EI will be an important stop on their way to a successful future career. As students and scholars from CERGE-EI assume leadership positions, their outlook on international issues will have been shaped by CERGE-EI’s multinational environment and their periods of international study.
The new students, of which 40% are women, come from 18 different countries spanning four continents. Those countries are: Albania, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Nigeria, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United States.
If you see the new students around the CERGE-EI hallways and offices, remember to warmly greet them!
