Programme: LLM Banking Law and Financial Regulation, 2009
Current Position: Attorney-at-Law
I graduated from LSE in 2009 where I did my LLM specialising in Banking Law and Financial Regulation. After graduation I came back to Croatia and started to work in one of the biggest law firms in the country (Zuric & Partners). My education at LSE has had a direct and successful impact on my career path. LSE studies provided me with knowledge, skills and networking that gave me the comparative advantage to other professionals in the business and access to major client pool. I would strongly recommend LSE to any professional in the world.

Programme: MSc Management and Regulation of Risk, 2009
Current Position: Market and Liquidity Risk Management Analyst, Hellenic Bank Group
During my studies at LSE I had the opportunity to be taught by world-class professors and to attend very important and informative seminars. It was a lifetime's experience. After finishing my master's I worked as an intern in an investment firm in Nicosia. When my internship came to an end I was offered a position as a Compliance Officer. The fact that I was an LSE graduate played an important part in getting this offer. I continued working as a Compliance Officer until I was offered a position as a Market and Liquidity Risk Management Analyst at the Hellenic Bank Group. During a time of high unemployment, when graduates find it incredibly hard to find jobs in Cyprus I managed to find one that exactly matches my degree. I believe this was due to being an LSE graduate.

Programme: MSc International Relations, 2012
Current Position: Consultant, Ernst & Young LLP, Glasgow
I joined EY as a Consultant in Glasgow in September 2013. I am part of the Risk Advisory Service, working over all of Scotland and the UK on clients of various sizes - from local bespoke service clients through to global firms. The work I have been doing primarily focuses on mitigating risk associated with IT and financial reporting.
The role requires a lot of travelling and liaising with teams from around the world. Studying at LSE has given me an excellent global network and appreciation of other cultures, allowing me to connect with peers in a deeper way than I would have previously been able to. The skills gained from my time at LSE have greatly helped in pursuing and securing this career but the analytical and critical mindset fostered by the School has helped me face the daily challenges with confidence.
I will be happy to answer any questions you have about my experience at LSE and how it has affected my career path.
