Alina Bobkova
MA in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP)
"As an Erasmus Mundus student in European Public Policy I’m very happy to study my first year at CEU. I never met as many international, diverse and inspiring people in one place, as in the CEU. It is amazing to study public policy in such a diverse community and learn from so many political (and not only) examples and interesting cases from all around the world! This program is a truly representative of the global world where our interconnection is also our strength and opportunity to grow."
