#DSPS - Markos Kounalakis
"Studying for my Political Science Ph.D. at CEU was a game changer for me. Literally. I am now working in an academic-focused new career at Stanford University and have enhanced the value and output of my previous career in journalism. Any Ph.D. program should work a bit like a boot camp - first getting you to reassess all your assumptions and then building up a new body of understanding both in knowledge and perception. A diverse, dynamic, and dedicated faculty that is able to work you through that process is key. An interesting urban environment and campus reinforce the lessons and expand the opportunities for exposure to challenging and interesting experiences. I am a fan of the university and the academic program."
Markos Kounalakis graduated from the Political Science PhD program in 2016.
