My life at PSIA
Since my academic background was far from economics and politics, I was looking for a programme that would fill both the gaps. Indeed, I found that the International Economic Policy programme at PSIA addresses both economics and policy-making simultaneously and substantially.
My most inspiring class has been Global Economic Regulation with Howard Davies. Though I do not specialise in finance, Professor Davies’ lectures were so clear and well-structured that I could familiarize myself with the field rapidly. And the content of the lectures was timely and up to date with real life too.
I am going to specialize in economics of innovations and high-tech so that to work either as a consultant in the private sector or for an international/governmental development agency.
My life outside PSIA
I really enjoyed evening walks around the city centre. So I will definitively miss Paris’ beautiful gardens, small and calm streets and ancient buildings…
