My time at the University of Cambridge was extremely rewarding. The MPhil in Technology Policy was a great opportunity to develop the skills required to meet the challenges of integrating technology, economics, policy, and law. The programme was no doubt challenging, but also extremely stimulating and rewarding. In my current role working for an EU institution, the MPhil has helped me understand the strategic importance of today’s complex social, economic, and political issues. I make use of the skills I learned on a daily basis.
