Nehat Dobratiqi

Master of Arts in Economics at The University of Maine

Mr. Dobratiqi graduated from the University of Maine with a Master of Arts in Economics.

He gained both a theoretical and practical knowledge of Economics after studying in US, and plans to apply his knowledge to improve the political and economic climate in Kosovo. He aims to create a new NGO that would advocate for SMEs and provide educational and training opportunities for entrepreneurs, targeting minority groups. His duties as a team leader at "Nasa Sphed" afforded him a better understanding of the difficulties facing businesses, and will help him to focus on areas for improvement when he returns to Kosovo.

In September 2015, a University of Maine professor presented Nehat and fellow TLP-SP scholar Dorina Grezda's research at a conference. Read their success story here.
