In this talk I get to catch up with fellow classmate and Aztec, Adrian de Arriba.
Adrian de Arriba was born in A Coruña, Spain but moved to the United States, when he was only 10 years old–where he had a great and wonderful experience growing up in Coronado, Ca.
Adrian and I both attended Coronado High School together (2007) and San Diego State University (2012), where he majored in Economics. And after completing his college education, he then went abroad to Bocconi University in Milan, Italy to earn his Masters in Economics, which he is now working on his thesis.
Studying abroad especially at the graduate level, he says, was difficult; “when you go abroad you go to a different educational system.” Not only do you have to adapt to the pace of graduate school, but how they conduct classes and examinations. But overall, he says, he thoroughly enjoyed his academic experience at Bocconi University. His biggest advice for future economists out there is to take mathematics (courses) seriously and really research graduate programs based on what you are interested in.
Today he his back in Coronado, Ca where he will be completing his thesis and aspiration of becoming an economic analyst.
If you wish to contact him for advice on pursuing a undergraduate and graduate degree in Economics or ask him about his experience at Bocconi University, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
