The Global Media program is a unique opportunity to do a joint Masters where the second year is spent at USC. It attracts a diverse group of students, all with a distinguished academic past. To be a part of such an accomplished group is an honour. 

Before I came to LSE I knew the school was highly regarded for its entire range of programmes, not just the ones in Economics. It was a very pleasant surprise when LSE was ranked second best in the world in social sciences in accordance with the Times National and World League tables. The intimate connection to the business world and various organisations made the school very attractive as it carries the promise of a life beyond studies – saying you're from LSE helps put a foot in the door, whether you're looking to do research or find a job. 

LSE is located smack in the middle of London within walking distance of a vast range of cultural events, historical institutions, and entertainment. You need that in between being buried in books! After I complete my programme I will pursue a career in communication, specifically competence development in ethical corporate leadership.
