"Even though I knew the program was interdisciplinary I think the value of that has most positively surprised me. Labour market issues are complex, and even as a lawyer it is important to be able to look at things from different perspectives and disciplines."
Jeremy FrancisPolicy Consultant for the HR Policy and Employment Relations Unit at the OSCE
"Most importantly, look for the connections between the various courses. Once you are able to see how interrelated everything is, you will truly understand the value of the multi-disciplinary approach this program takes."
