"In addition to the expertise in studying economics, my experience instilled emphasis on personal responsibility and initiative. This is how I learned to work independently on new and unfamiliar issues; a skill that I need constantly today. Even the basic models and the thinking of economics remain very useful to me in the recognition of patterns and strategy development! It is this ability that greatly helps in navigating the post-academic career. "
