“One of the best trainings I have ever had so far.
It allowed me to reconnect with the economic fundamentals that I left behind after graduating from ENA. Thanks to this program, I gained back the necessary skills that are essential  to all public servants.”

Beyond the four modules built with a lot of pedagogy, I especially appreciated the quality of the exchanges. The case studies were very effective and useful to understand the application of theoretical knowledge to practical and real situations. In all honesty, I can only highlight positive points. In summary I would say thank you again for this great learning experience.
