Guy Tocker (Romania/Israel) - Competition Law and Economics
'I chose this programme because of UvA’s and its School of Economics’ reputation in terms of teaching, research and available facilities.'
'For me, this track enables those who are interested in the area where economics and law converge, to gain a better understanding. Also I like that this programme is highly practical, zo graduates are well-equipped for the job market.'
'While this programme can be a bit overwhelming at times, the lecturers are quite flexible and always willing to assist when asked to. With students coming from a variety of countries, the environment is very international. Bringing a lot of fun and interesting experiences.'
'Studying here is challenging and rewarding at the same time. The Amsterdam School of Economics is involved in various areas, the research and curriculum are demanding, but extremely relevant and up-to-date.'
'After living in Amsterdam during my Bachelor's and Master's studies, I can't really think of any better place to study. Besides the city's unique charm, commuting is extremely convenient (with or without a bicycle). There is always something happening and students can always find something to do.'
'Currently I’m doing an internship at ING alongside my thesis writing. But I’m still considering my next steps as there are many opportunities across a variety of organisations (EU institutions, national regulators, consultancies and other firms).'
