What our students think…

The IBD MSc was an extremely rewarding year for me that broadened my horizons and widened my knowledge base, mainly due to the unique nature of the course and the high quality of teaching. This degree also introduced me to international trade and exposed me to cultural differences, which have an important impact on trade negotiations between countries.
I’m very proud to have obtained this triple degree and to belong to the MIEX community.
I have developed greatly both personally and professionally.
