I chose the Master in Economics at FAU because I wanted to understand the role of labor market outcomes for individuals over their life cycle, and how individuals are affected by macroeconomic changes. The study program’s flexibility with respect to choosing elective modules allowed me to advance my knowledge in the areas I am most enthusiastic about. The program and my work as a research assistant prepared me to pursue a PhD at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, as a Grattan Scholar.

As an international student from Ecuador, I chose the Master in Economics at FAU for its broad range of specializations and its highly interactive learning environment. Small classes and the constant exchange with other students and lecturers allowed me to grasp what economics is actually about. Supported by a scholarship for MSE graduates, I obtained my PhD at FAU. I now work for a consultancy in Berlin implementing projects for international development cooperation.
