Student Profile

Hluf Hagos Shiqar

My name is Hluf Hagos Shiqar and I am from Ethiopia. I studied the masters programme in Public Economics, Law and Politics at Leuphana between 2013 and 2015. Right after I returned back home from my study in Germany, I received the chance to join the Planning and Development Commission of Ethiopia where I served as an expert in international and regional economic affairs. Currently, I am working as a head of education and social statistics at the Tigray Statistics Agency in Ethiopia.
The programme at Leuphana is multidisciplinary and I do believe that it helped me in thinking about and understanding different issues in different perspectives. During my studies I was able to improve my scientific skills and I even participated in inspiring international scientific conferences such as the Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting in Economic Sciences. I am delighted that I had the chance to study at Leuphana. I will always remember the professionalism and cooperativeness of the coordinators for international students there.
