"I have learned a lot about what’s currently going on in different fields of research. This helped me shape my interests for the upcoming PhD research. After my master’s, I didn’t really feel qualified to make the decision whether to do a PhD or work in the private sector right away."
Felix C. (PhD candidate, European University Institute, Florence)
"Basically I was introduced to the ASP by my supervisor and I saw the opportunity to upgrade my knowledge of international economics, my English and to network with students/researchers from other universities/countries that are dealing with similar research topics."
Nataša V. (PhD candidate, Ljubljana University)
“If you want to upgrade your innovative thinking in international economics, to learn and think with us about global solutions, and improve your long term career perspectives, the ASP is the program for you.” Olivier Godart (ASP 2003/2004 | ASP Director of Studies)
