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.

As such, it offers me the chance to develop an in-depth knowledge of a plethora of subjects, including regulation, compliance, finance, law, accountancy and public policy. Having a highly esteemed LSE degree in my CV may well have given me this unique opportunity.

Whilst studying for my Masters at the LSE I also interned in Emily Thornberry MP's constituency office one day a week.

My day-to-day job involves dealing with constituents and helping them with problems that range from housing issues to immigration applications, problems with their benefits to detailed questions regarding Emily's stance on key political issues of the day.

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.
