Julian Merschen

I obtained my BSc in Mathematics and Economics from LSE and wanted to deepen my knowledge of applying mathematical concepts to economic problems. What I like most about this programme is the interdisciplinary approach – being able to combine subjects from several LSE departments, and also the ability to set a strong focus on specific subject, eg game theory. 

The Mathematics Department has a strong sense of community, and I have benefited from both the support of academic faculty and discussions with fellow students. The most memorable event of my MSc was a meeting with Nobel Prize Laureate Robert Aumann, to which my MSc thesis advisor invited me when he visited the School in 2006.

After my MSc I plan to start the European Doctoral Programme in Quantitative Economics.
