My application to study a masters degree at Duke University has been inspired by different aspects of the university that fits with my career goals. My goal is to have a wide perspective and not focus on economics only. Duke University provides students with a chance to incorporate other courses in their economic studies. Such courses include political science and public policy which fit with their goals.
The faculty at the university is diversified, which presents immense experience to the students. Some professors at the university focus their research on specific countries. Others concentrate on specialized areas such as public finance and financial market development. The diversified faculty at Duke University attracted me to apply for a masters degree because it could provide me with an all round experience. In addition, students hail from various cultures, work experiences and educational backgrounds. Such diverse people can improve my perception and relationship with others.
