My time at the University of Macedonia was extremely impactful in helping me reach my career objectives. Focusing on all the countries in southeastern Europe was invaluable and I found the emphasis on economics refreshingly useful. The professors were demanding, which required hard work and focus to succeed, but they were the best group of instructors I have ever studied under. I believe each of them not only took a personal interest in helping me learn the material, but they also offered their counsel, advice, and support on all my endeavors since graduation. The UOM's interest in helping me succeed, as well as the quality of their instruction, far exceeded my expectations as an American studying abroad. I highly recommend this program to anyone desiring to gain a better understanding of how politics and economics impact government in southeastern Europe and the European Union as a whole.
