STIG program broadened my horizons. Perhaps, I am an unconventional Ph.D student, because I have spent my final term in the University not just writing articles and preparing for the defense, but taking STIG courses as well.
I was eager to talk and collaborate with people who have different educational and professional background. STIG's collaborative-style courses provided opportunities to create projects with unfamiliar grounds. Especially, in the required course "Case Study (Science, Technology, Innovation Policy)", I experienced valuable practical exercise and received a direct feedback.
Many courses are tailored made and practically applicable. These courses stimulated my understanding of modern public policy.
I plan to work in the industry as an analyst. My experience with STIG benefited me with further career opportunities.
