Rani Aziz '17 has an undergraduate degree in International Development from the University of Toronto.
I come from a development background and I wanted something more economics-intensive. It seemed that Barcelona GSE had a very well-rounded program with great faculty in a great city. The faculty are very involved, and staff are very accomodating. They really give you time. Students are from all over the world, and they're open to learning new things.
From the ITFD program, I expect to be able to read economics journals, be involved in economics research, maybe work more in microeconomics and development, using the tools that I'm learning in the ITFD program.
