Tao - 2019

I chose GO APEC program in Chile mainly for three reasons. First, this program is the only program that enable me to gain credit as a post-graduate student. I want to have more time for internships in my final semester. 

In addition, APEC courses attracted me very much. The program includes a wide range of topics about the current issues in APEC region.
