Philip Rauber

Originally from Switzerland, I have worked, studied, and lived in nine countries across five continents over the past twenty years. I also speak German, Portuguese and some French and I recently just finished an MSc in Economic History at LSE. In my undergraduate degree I studied economics at the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland) and through exchange programs I attended universities in France, Brazil, China, and Malaysia.

My ten years of professional experience in the private, public, and non-profit sector have allowed me to gain insights in areas as diverse as financial services, tech start-ups, hospitality management, the armed forces, anthropological research, and economic development. Moreover, I am a board member of an educational foundation where I regularly mentor fellows. My interests include reading about economic history, studying languages, and experimenting with fusion food recipes.

Pursuing a degree at LSE is an exceptional opportunity to grow academically, professionally, and personally; at times it may be challenging, but eventually it is a truly rewarding experience. In this spirit I like to remember Samuel Beckett’s quote:

‘Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.’

I look forward to working with you at LSE LIFE.
