Current Position: Strategy Consultant, Risk Management

Country: Lebanon

I graduated from LSE with a MSc. Economy, Risk and Society in December 2014. I am currently working as a consultant in strategy, organization and planning at an insurance and reinsurance group. Having an LSE Masters degree helped me push forward not only my career but my personal life in ways I couldn't have imagined in terms of knowledge, connections or skills. As a junior consultant, I am still looking to strengthen my experience before I open my own consulting firm in the coming 10 years.
