"I consider DSPS to be one of the best doctoral schools in Europe. I had the privilege to supervise more than a dozen students during the last two decades. I am very proud of the achievements and of the friendship of these colleagues. I have also been lucky to attend many of the network conferences (with LSE, EUI, Sciences Po, Pompeu Fabra, Humboldt, SUM, IHS) and I can attest that CEU students are competitive, professional, and cooperative. The program is demanding, but it provides the participants with good chances for a successful career."
