University courses

Filed under:

As a humble effort to document my life, here's a list of courses included in my Master of Science (Econ.) degree -- 250 credit units all together.

It's just a plain list for me to remember what I've been studying, and maybe to show you what I'm interested in (or what I was obliged to study to finish the degree!). I'll let you guess which subjects on this list I liked the most.
