Thanks to its high academic standards and constant strive for excellence, MEPP greatly contributed to advance my analytical skills as well as to deepen my knowledge of public affairs. As importantly, by bringing students from many countries together, MEPP demonstrates that the idea of Europe is not just a concept, it is also a reality
