Robin ArgueyrollesGraduate MSc Economics
"During this program I have mastered the essential technical knowledge to understand and perform the tasks given to me as an intern at the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP). Having sharpened my critical thinking during the various courses of the program, I have gained the ability to go beyond what was asked of me and perform above the given expectations. The program has also helped me becoming more flexible, allowing me to gain new knowledge and adapt to new situation faster. It is without a doubt in my mind that I would not have been accepted for this position or would be performing as well, if not for this Master's program in Economics."
