My experience at CeFiMS was excellent. I had already worked for over five years in the public service and I wanted to advance my knowledge and acquire new skills in order to advance in my career. I believe I have made the best choice in selecting the MSc in Public Policy and Management. Immediately after I finished my studies, I applied for a better job with confidence and was successful in securing this new employment position. The Masters degree gave me that additional asset that any employer is looking for when recruiting their professional staff.
I found the programme very well structured; the course units were well balanced with a good deal of reading material appropriately selected, helping me understand how governments implement and manage policies to address both global and local issues of concern.
The distance learning mode is a very efficient way to study, especially for someone like me who had a full-time job and a family to look after. It allowed me the flexibility to arrange my time to do my studies and balance my work and personal life. Both the academic and administrative staff were very supportive. Futhermore, being in a 'virtual' class with colleagues from all around the world meant that we could exchange ideas and share opinions and examples of our own governments' policies.
All in all, a very beneficial and enlightening experience!
