    Development at ECLAC UN in Santiago de Chile Why did you choose to attend PEPM I was looking to expanding my current background in Economics by attending a Masters Program in the U S I found out that not many institutions offered a Masters but a PhD which was out of my reach Apparently only Columbia matched my requirements and the fact that it was such a prestigious institution in the field plus an appealing surrounding and an incredible internship in the World Bank IMF was definitely a big plus and my first choice How would you describe your experience at PEPM What is the most valuable thing you took away from your time at PEPM It was a growing experience in every way I gathered a very valuable knowledge about studying in a foreign country in a foreign language with a mix of foreign people You learn a lot about other countries and cultures You improve your English command in a way not attainable by any other means In terms of the classes I reassured my good knowledge of Economics and discovered the branches of the profession PEPM gives you a very wide range of choices to pursue your interests in every possible field Private public social etc and in virtually any region of the world You become a much better and mature person and you try to carry this to all your peers for good I can see this as a difference in myself when compared to people who has not had the chance I had I can t but give a special acknowledgement to dear Director Prof Rivera Batiz who made PEPM a professional program but also a fun and relaxing one at times something that is very very important and appreciated from people like myself who leave your home country family friends etc and go abroad to live in a strange country with strange people He just made it all so much easier and comfortable Special mention as well to Assistant at that time Maya Haddow also very nice and dear to us all Can you talk abuot the internships you completed while at PEPM I did my internship program in FIAS in the IFC of the World Bank in Washington D C It is an experience you take with you for good in everything you do because it is the top development institution in the world You learn from your mentors and peers and I had the chance to travel to Nicaragua and Panama What is your relationship with PEPM now I believe that when you complete the program and you go back to your home country you find yourself very busy with the change Then you spend some time looking for a job and making other arrangements for the future It is only after a while that you try to reestablish some contact At least that is what happened to me I did visit NYC back and some colleagues Of course you keep yourself
