“CIFE gave me the opportunity to grow academically, professionally, as well as personally. The diversity of nationalities in class made it possible for me to make an incredible group of friends with different personalities, cultures, and experiences.

At the same time, the limited number of students per class gave me the chance to have deep interactions and exchanges with my colleagues, Professors and staff, for which I am extraordinarily thankful.”

– Carolina de Albuquerque, Current position: Graduate Trainee at the Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lisbon
