PROGRAMME: Quantitative Economics

Why did you choose to study this programme?

I have always had a keen interest in Economics, even though my major of Bachelor was not in that field. During my exchange study at the University of Tartu, I was trying to be more and more close to my goal, then I found Quantitative Economics programme, which is what I am interested in and also can help me to achieve my pursuit in career. That’s why I am now taking this programme and enjoying to conquer every challenge and difficulty I meet.

Why Estonia?

Firstly, during my study at the University of Tartu, I was impressed by the high quality of teaching and the enjoyable academic atmosphere. Here provides me the opportunity to study Economics from a more international perspective. Secondly, the environment of Estonia attracted me so much. The air is absolutely fresh, and you can enjoy the pure white snow surrounding you, which is how winter should be to me. Thirdly, Estonian language sounds really beautiful and rhythmical. Although it is quite difficult to learn, I’m still enjoying learning it. Finally, here you can make friends from all over the world. Some of them can even be your lifelong friends. You know how sad it will be if you have to go home and leave them, so I just decided to come back and continue my life here.
