Programme:  MSc Comparative Politics, 2008

Current Position: Policy and social analysis on mining and energy sectors in Peru

I personally believe that my experience in London changed my life in several aspects. Beyond the outstanding academic level, sharing a class, a coffee or a beer with people from all around the globe was amazing. I think that more Peruvians should follow the same path. I graduated from LSE in 2008 and am currently working for Golder Associates.
