'There is no dull moment'
Ashay Alok - Monetary Policy and Banking track
'I chose this Master’s programme because of UvA's ranking, the city of Amsterdam and the Dutch labour market.'
'The programme has met my expectations. The first block was a good preparation for the rest of the year. The lecturers in monetary policy work at the DNB and share first-hand experience with us, which is very valuable. My fellow students come from diverse backgrounds which is always enriching.'
'Studying at the Amsterdam School of Economics is a challenging and exciting experience. There is no dull moment. Coursework, assignments, exams and lectures follow one another. I experience great support provided at ASE, especially from study advisors.'
'I like studying in Amsterdam. The city has a very international character and it is possible to commute with a bicycle. I have picked up Dutch lessons and I like the sense of accomplishment I get from picking up Dutch from the people around me.'
'After my Master's I would like to find a full-time position in the Netherlands. I am considering a PhD after my degree, after I have worked for a few years.'
