What Our Master Graduates Say

Ilya Morozov, Doctoral student at Stanford Graduate School of Business, CEMFI Master 2015
I spent two of the most amazing years of my life at CEMFI—challenging, exciting, eye opening, and enriching, both academically and personally.


Horacio Larreguy, Harvard University, CEMFI Master 2007
The Master at CEMFI prepared me extremely well for my graduate studies at MIT. Having a solid foundation allowed me to focus on more advanced courses from the moment I arrived in Cambridge. This helped me get started with research very early on, which was essential to land a job at the Government Department at Harvard.


Brian Jackson, Medley Global Advisors (Financial Times Group), CEMFI Master 2012
CEMFI not only provides the tools needed to perform technical economic analysis, but also instills a habit of thinking like an economist. The latter is at least as important as the former.
