People of CERGE-EI: Meet Our Alumni

31 May, 2023

Emil Stavrev, a CERGE-EI PhD graduate, and the Deputy Division Chief at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), shares his inspiring journey in the new alumni interview on CERGE-EI Blog, done by our current PhD student Mari Mtchedlishvili. 

"I liked all courses at CERGE. All proved to be very useful in my future career. Of course, macroeconomics was key for my current job, but the other courses helped me shape as an economist. Indeed, the rigorous education I got at CERGE, allowed me to get my first job as an advisor to the Chief Financial Officer at the Czech Telecom. After that, at the Czech National Bank, where I worked in the monetary section for over 5 years, and later on at the International Monetary Fund, where I have been for over 22 years now," says Emil.
