Imre Szabo (MA 2009-2010, PhD 2011-2016)
Post-doctoral fellow at University College Dublin
"The single best decision in my professional life was when I applied to CEU’s Political Science MA program in 2009. I had an experience at CEU that shaped who I am in fundamental ways. I have learnt how to process complex information about the functioning of political systems and societies. I have learnt how to present my thoughts clearly and interestingly and how to engage in scientific debates. I got a lot of help and mentorship on the way, and I had the privilege to be part of a uniquely international student community. Later on I used the skills acquired at CEU to pursue a career in academia, but I am confident that these skills can just as well be used in other walks of life."
