"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
