Ben Ferguson (2008–2009)

After completing my MSc in Philosophy of the Social Sciences, I worked for one year at an educational publishing company before returning to the LSE to pursue a PhD in Philosophy. The work I did during the MSc helped me to isolate the general structure of arguments and improved my attention to detail-both of which were useful […]

Paul Robinson (2007–2008)

I was attracted to the LSE program by the large range of subjects covered, and I wasn’t disappointed, having benefitted from intercollegiate teaching at KCL. Both lectures and seminars are given by experts in the field, and class sizes are generally small, allowing personal interaction. I also profited from attending events organised through LSE’s Centre for Philosophy […]

The Philosophy of the Social Sciences MSc programme at the LSE was a great opportunity for me. I learned more in one year than in all of my previous years of school and university put together. The faculty are all experts in their fields and the lectures and seminars are very well structured. In addition, I received […]

David Sneyd has accepted a job working for the Pensions Investment Research Consultancy, which lobbies for proper corporate governance in companies as well as organising shareholder activism. He received the job mainly due to his MSc dissertation which was on shareholder activism and which acted as quite a nice segue into the sector.

Seachange is a New York based non-profit firm that aims to help outstanding non-profits, beginning in youth education and youth development, raise capital to support their growth, through donations from wealthy individuals, foundations, and other organizations.

Yi Hu (2006–2007)

I am currently working in equity research of HSBC CIBM (Corporate, Investment Banking and Markets). This is a global rotational program, so I have the opportunity to rotate in London, Hong Kong or New York. I think that the PPP program has significantly improved my analytical and critical thinking skills, which are essential to equity research. Meanwhile, […]

The Philosophy and Public Policy course, with its great breadth of topics, provided the perfect […]
