How did the study contribute to your career?
My study at ISS helped me to see things more critically as well as broadly, both macro and micro perspectives for development. To understand different culture and background is also great learning from a number of discussions, reading, and lectures with practical examples at ISS. Those things are effectively used for my work to manage projects.
Would you recommend ISS to others interested in studying Development Studies?
Definitely! Whenever I meet people who are interested in studying development studies, I recommend them studying at ISS and the Netherlands.

The time at ISS was just amazing and grateful. Learning with excellent experts, sharing experiences with diverse friends from all over the world, and feeling European cultural perspectives were my treasure in my life!
