Undergraduate Degrees (BA, BSc)


Shu Wen

Programme: BA History, 2012

Current Position: Social Science Editor, World Scientific Publishing and Imperial College Press, Singapore

Country: Malaysia|

I am a social science editor with World Scientific Publishing and Imperial College Press. I've always been interested in going into the publishing industry and being a history graduate has not been of any disadvantage to me in applying for work experience/jobs in this field. In fact, my background and interest in history has opened a lot of doors for me and I have fortunate enough to edit many books related to my interests in Middle East history and current affairs. I have also been able to meet a lot of academics, consultants and intellectuals to discuss publishing opportunities-- to sum up, bringing history and political science topics to life and to print has been very rewarding so far!

Programme: MSc Theory and History of International Relations, 2007

Current Position: Second Secretary, Political Affairs, Embassy of Israel

Life since my MSc at LSE has taken me to the diplomatic service, passing through a one year stint in a corporate strategy consulting firm. Since joining the Israeli diplomatic corps. and completing a six month training programme, I worked as a desk officer at HQ and have now been posted to New Delhi. Both the academic programme and the experience of sharing student life with friends from around the globe at LSE have given me very important tools for my line of work.
