It is very rewarding to be teaching at the same class where I have also taken my first economic lectures, as well as it is a big responsibility toward the students and the University to keep the level of teaching at global standards and to always try to bring innovation.  I am very thankful to the Department of Economics for all the dedication and professionalism while I was a student and all the support and collaboration now that we are colleagues’ – says Ms. Pici
