Bernat Aritz Monge Nunes

Full-time Double Master's Degree Student

Summary

I have recently finished a double Master's programme on European Integration at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and at the Université de Toulouse and I am currently improving my command of the french language.

After developing a thorough formation in economics and the economies of Europe I have delved into the institutional and legal aspects that frame them in order to develop a fully integral understanding of the European Union. Europe is the land where I live and that I feel as my own. I think Europe faces enormous present and future challenges in economic, political, cultural and even humanitarian matters and I desire to develop a fulfilling career contributing to the collective well-being of the Europeans tackling these challenges.

I want to dedicate my professional efforts in areas concerning either the private or the public sector and related to the European economy, the European Union Law, Monetary economics, Economic policy-making, and/or socio-political analysis of Europe. My aspirations are strongly guided by a sense of improving society, making it more democratic, more egalitarian, with more opportunities and more cultivated.

I have always been interested in developing a wide-range and integral comprehension about all the fields of economics, the social sciences and the humanities. My reference is the ideal of the renaissance man, an integral being that fully develops its intellectual and physical abilities and a thorough understanding of the world.

I practice Jiu-Jitsu and Judo every week and I regularly lift weights. Other interests: Democracy, Economic thought, Languages, Online learning, Cinema.
