"Through the Honors Program I was able to deepen my knowledge in economics, push myself to further limits, and create invaluable connections with experts in the field. The professors created an easy atmosphere of learning by taking the time to explain and discuss questions after every seminar and were always there for career or general advice. In addition, the program brought the five of us closer together by equally pushing and supporting each other. To me, the program was the best part of this last bachelor’s year and I am so grateful to have been given the chance to take a part in it.“

The Honors program was definitely the best experience of my bachelor degree."

"The Honor Program embodies the primary purpose and etymology of education: to guide. Undeniably the best experience of the Bachelor, this program offers a close collaboration between motivated students and dedicated professors. The weekly seminars and the position of assistant of research open the gates to the academic world which seems so inaccessible. Surrounded by diligent comrades and invested professors, I managed to satisfy my thirst for knowledge while developing the rigor necessary for any researcher. Thanks for this great adventure!"
