Alumni Testimonial


"ZEI made it possible for me to pursue a career at the World Bank Group. The comprehensive program set in a small-classroom environment gave me a greater understanding of the European Union and it's role in the larger context. I developed very meaningful friendships and valuable contacts as a result of this program that I continue to rely on to this day."
