Patrick G

Programme: MSc Political Economy of Europe, 2013

Current Position: Associate Consultant, Sendero Consulting

I arrived at the LSE unsure of what consulting was. After attending the career fair, making contacts, and undergoing the rigorous application process, I left London knowing that I wanted to work for a small management consulting firm. The skills I obtained from my time at the LSE, both in the classroom and with peers at the pub debating the merits of argument and sound reasoning, emboldened me to pursue a career in consulting. The intellectual rigor associated with such a career has helped me thrive in my current role. I found a small management consulting firm and I am now an associate consultant in Dallas, TX working in the oil and gas industry. My expertise is in business process design, strategy, software development and project management. My training from the LSE sets me above my peers and allowed me to excel in a project management role much faster than others.

Programme: MSc Real Estate Economics and Finance,  2009

Current Position: Director of Research, John Burns Real Estate Consulting

I enjoyed every moment of my time as a graduate student at LSE.
