Master Class CEE 2019/20

Statements of former MC CEE students:

"By joining the Master Class CEE I had the great opportunity to deepen my knowledge about the CEE region and studying and working together with a group of motivated and like-minded students. Besides our classes I liked the research project we worked on as we had the chance to get an impression of how university research projects are conducted. I especially enjoyed the nice atmosphere in our team, which made it easy to work together and which made this year an unforgettable one."

"Being a part of Master Class CEE was the best experience I had during my master studies. Getting the first-hand information about business activities from top managers of well-established companies in the CEE region, conducting a research project on opportunities and challenges in CEE countries, and having two field trips to Hungary and Bulgaria was something that made this program so unique. What is more, we had the pleasure of working with a highly diverse team of master and Ph.D. students from Austria and CEE countries, which created a great team spirit and an outstanding working atmosphere."
