Meet our students: Eduardo Pena Munzenmayer

Chilean student Eduardo Pena Munzenmayer has relished the opportunity to network with students from all over the world while studying at Crawford School.

Munzenmaye, a marine biologist in his home country, wanted to study something related to his profession but with a policy perspective. Two years later he’s just completed a Master of Environmental Management and Development in Crawford School’s Resources, Environment and Development program.

He said that studying at Crawford has been a great experience that’s allowed him to meet many academics and students from other countries.

“The professors, lecturers and the topics have been exceptional and very interesting, but for me, the best part about studying at Crawford has been the diversity and the possibility to meet people from different parts of the world.

“For example, in every class there are people from about 25 different countries.

“That’s 25 different cultures that you can learn from and I think that is one of the more important things about studying at ANU and at Crawford School,” he said.

Munzenmayer said that he’s learnt many things in his time at Crawford that he is looking forward to putting into practice in his career.

“I’ve learnt to amalgamate all the things I’ve learnt about economics, environmental issues and social issues to develop a better perspective about the problems I’ve had to deal with.

“This experience has given me the opportunity to learn a lot of different things and my time here has been absolutely perfect. I would like to stay for another two years if I could,” he said.
