"Joining Católica's Masters in Economics has been a challenging and extraordinary experience. The professors' excellence and their close relationship with students along with the opportunity to attend interesting conferences with the best economists (e.g. Sérgio Rebelo and Joseph Stiglitz) created an amazing academic environment for my development as an economist. In addition, Católica also offered me the opportunity to grow as a person through its exchange program. Looking back, I know I made the best choice."
