Working as a non-academic, I use the skills I've learned at EIPE on a daily basis, and they have definitely given me an edge over my peers. The research master in philosophy and economics allowed me to greatly improve my argumentative skills for my writing, presenting and debating or simply when I am on a phone call with my clients. I can now write down my ideas in a clear, organised and convincing manner. Similarly, when presenting at an event, I express my arguments in a direct and clear fashion, followed by addressing these possible counter arguments.
