Akop Gabrielyan (MA 2012-2014)
Executive Assistant to Founder & CEO at Teach For Armenia Foundation
"Today I visited Central European University, where a Master's degree was received some years ago. Referring to the years of my study here, I always remember these years with satisfaction and the feeling of pride, as I didn't betrayed my views, remained loyal to the idea of academic impartiality, defended my thesis and, eventually, met not a few number of professionals, who valued academic and analytical work of a student, rather than a student's political affiliation. This was a difficult but at the same time interesting period, which allowed me to comprehend the Western (in a larger sense) culture of political thought, the way of its construction and the logic of development."
