The MSc in Economics and Philosophy changed the way I think about economics, making me a more rigorous and inquisitive researcher. Prior to attending LSE, I had thought of economics as a progressive science, where mathematical models can be used to accurately describe phenomena in the same way they are routinely used in physics or chemistry. I still think […]

I found the MSc Economics and Philosophy degree incredibly challenging, but I firmly believe it was the best choice of degree for me. I learned so much from balancing my quantitative skills with the depth of abstract thought involved in philosophical subjects. Most of all, I was proud of the process of writing my thesis, in which I really […]

Even before starting the MSc in Philosophy of Science I knew I wanted to do a PhD in Philosophy at LSE. The master programme offered me the right environment to develop the necessary skills for making a successful application to a PhD programme and the intellectual background and confidence for embarking on such a project. The programme offers a wide variety of […]

I joined LSE having read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the undergraduate level. I was attracted by the clear focus of the course content, which would allow me to obtain a good depth of understanding of the subject within a short space of time. One also could not deny the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of […]

I came to LSE with a background in theoretical physics. My hope was to get the philosophical background needed to do research on the philosophical foundations of physics. The courses I took in the MSc programme in Philosophy of Science were simply excellent and prepared me well for my current studies as a PhD Fellow at the […]

After completing the Master’s programme in philosophy and public policy, I resumed work at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, where I am involved in strategic planning and performance management. I am very happy that I did the programme. It has exposed me to new and interesting ideas, concepts and perspectives, and at times, forced me to step […]

After finishing my Dissertation in September 2012 I moved to New York to look for work and ended up doing temp work for a small tech company while applying and interviewing for full-time jobs. In January I was very fortunate to get a full time offer from Bain & Company’s London office. I’m certain that doing well […]

I arrived at the LSE with a ‘traditional’ Philosophy background and a hope that the concepts and values I had studied could be usefully applied to explore and perhaps help resolve current public policy challenges. After a year’s worth of debates on secessionist ethics, climate change and democratic dilemmas (etc), I felt that the Philosophy and Public […]

I am currently working in Spectron Desarrollo, a public policy consultancy here in Mexico City. We get the chance to study and analyse both federal and state programs. The job is very fulfilling—it is quite similar to the analysis we learned at LSE but done on Mexican policies.

Having graduated from the LSE in September 2012, I joined Oliver Wyman’s London office as a Junior Consultant in January 2013. Prior to that, I completed an internship with the German Foreign Office’s Permanent Mission to the OECD in Paris. My degree in Philosophy and Public Policy (PPP) has helped me secure both roles in three distinct […]
