The chance to interact with students from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds, as well as global employability after graduation, were the driving forces for me to apply to LSE after my Diploma. The MSc programme in Management, Organisations and Governance has given me a comprehensive overview of the practice of management. In contrast to the narrower education at business schools, it addresses management not only on an economic level, but also in a broader societal context. Interacting with some of the world's brightest people, both students and professors, has been the most overwhelming experience at LSE. The interesting mixture of students, many with a high level of previous experience, puts even the most abstract knowledge into a practical context. The broad extra-curricular offering of almost daily public lectures with speakers from Bill Clinton to George Soros has rounded out my experience here. The range of activities offered on campus by the different societies also provides a good incubator for personal development. During my time in the Corporate Responsibility Society I learned to shape and adjust my management biased views on the role (and duties) of companies, and interact with students from widely different backgrounds. Studying at LSE offers a vast range of opportunities after graduation, as the area of subjects is broad enough to be attractive for a huge range of employers and institutions. After I graduate I plan either to go for a PhD in a management related area, or a challenging graduate development programme within a multinational company somewhere abroad.'
