Professor d’Amico’s enthusiasm was one of the many reasons I looked forward to his informative classes. We unraveled such complex topics in a seemingly effortless and enjoyable  manner.

The faculty were incredibly knowledgeable and, being able to talk to them, one on one, was something I had never gotten to experience and something which solidified my passion for PPE.

The lectures, precepts, tutorials and classes were all extremely intellectually stimulating and have allowed me to learn topics I wouldn’t have necessarily covered at my state school.

David Friedman is an excellent teacher, who presents the plain truth and helps fully develop your intellectual capabilities. Ironically, behind his homo economicus persona is a man who cares a great deal about his students.

Sean Sinanan

The opportunity to listen to David Friedman’s political and economic ideas was amazing; his willingness to entertain debate and be challenged added to my enjoyment of his teaching.
