After my Bachelor’s programme in Germany, I wanted to widen my horizon and gain more knowledge in the fields of international relations, public policy and international organizations. Furthermore, I wanted to come back to the Netherlands where I have spent my Erasmus semester during my Bachelor’s. The Master’s programme International Public Management and Public Policy (IMP) offered me all this: an interesting and dynamic programme combined with a broad international scope and a focus on research as well as the modern and well-equipped study facilities here at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

After six months of following the Masters programme, I can say that I gained so much knowledge and experience in different fields related to our constantly changing and globalized political environment. I learned to approach problems differently and to change perspectives more often to understand our world better. Moreover, our study trip to different international organizations based in Geneva has shown me the far-reaching importance and impact of the system of international organizations to cope with global challenges such as climate change or migration.

My choice to go to Rotterdam for attending a Master’s programme was an easy one since the Master IMP is convincing thanks to its international focus, broad career opportunities and an interesting course structure.
