“The part-time Masters programme in Applied Economics has been tremendously rewarding for me in terms of career opportunities, personal development as well as new friendships. Through this programme, I have gained a deeper understanding of the dynamic nature of the world economy and skill sets that are applicable in day-to-day work. The lecturers have been most patient and dedicated, and are always there to provide sound advice to my queries. I am truly grateful to them for being an inspiration to me and the Department for all the support during my two-year journey!”
