Interview with Gabriel Orduña Montekio, Mexico

I am Gabriel and I studied political science at Universität Augsburg in Germany

Why did you choose to apply for the MSc in Global Development?

I knew already that I wanted to study development studies. It was just a matter of choosing the right University and the right program for it. UCPH gave me the combination of a prestigious University, a comprehensive program with opportunity for exchange and field work and a new country for me to discover.

How are you experiencing the cross-disciplinary aspect of the MSc in Global Development?

My background was interdisciplinary, because I did sociology and political science during my Bachelor and a year of intensive economics later on, but I appreciated very much the anthropological part of the program and it has proven useful during my internship now. I think it is one of the greatest features of the program.
