Here's what Jana had to say about her experience studying the PhD program at CERGE-EI:

“A PhD program that truly prepares you for an academic career in the Czech Republic and abroad.

CERGE-EI offers rigorous training that helps to create the necessary skill set for world-class research in economics.

I had the opportunity to work with the CERGE-EI faculty, discuss my research with distinguished speakers coming to Prague and attend many conferences and workshops abroad.”
