Alumni and Career Opportunities
Upon completion of the program, our MA graduates possess strong analytical and quantitative skills, enabling them to pursue successful careers in government as well as the private sector. Many of our former graduates have obtained, and advanced to, top positions in government, central banks, international organizations, as well as commercial banks, consulting firms and the region's leading corporations.
Our MA graduates are also exceptionally well prepared to undertake doctoral studies in economics and finance. Year after year, our MA graduates enter the most competitive doctoral programs in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Many of our past MA graduates have, upon completion of the world's most selective PhD programs, accepted prestigious academic and non-academic positions.
We are always happy to learn news about our past MA graduates who are encouraged to contact the CEU Alumni Relations, or the department directly.
Our PhD program was launched in 2000/2001. We are very excited to see our first graduates starting their careers. Recent PhD graduates have obtained high-level research positions in central and commercial banks, as well as the government, and some have obtained teaching positions.
