It has been more than two years now since my graduation and I still continue realizing everyday more and more that EMFRM programme helped me to improve my academic skills while strengthening my enthusiasm towards research. Being hardworking, having the need and openness to learn, not being afraid of initating things, being communicative, the courage to change things... These are just some of the other merits that I gained throughout the masters - on top of an excellent training on a wide range of topics concerning flood risk management. I am confident about myself and my contributions to my profession. There should be more FRM professionals trained by this programme, for sure! - especially from developing countries.
The FRM Programme gave me the opportunity to gain a lot of knowledge and experience in the field of flood risk. Now I am using this knowledge in my day to day job, in fact the programme was a big factor in me getting the job. While studying I got the chance to travel and live in different places, study at different universities with professors from variety of fields. This helped me to understand and improve my working skills in an international environment, be mindful of people's religion and culture and also appreciate language barriers and ways to overcome them. All those skills are now helpful in my job and overall life in a foreign country.
