Programme: BSc Human Resource Management and Employment Relations, 2010

Current Position:  Final Year PhD student in Management & Leadership Studies, University of Cambridge Judge Business School

I graduated from LSE with a BSc in Human Resource Management & Employment Relations. LSE has broadened my knowledge and taught me how to implement practical theory in the real world. After graduating from LSE, I undertook an MSc in Modern Chinese Studies at Oxford and an MPhil in Innovation, Strategy, and Organisation at Cambridge. I am really grateful to LSE for giving me a strong platform to further my academic studies. Currently, I am studying for a PhD at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, under a full scholarship from the Cambridge Trusts.  Upon graduation, I will continue to pursue my passion in research while working as an entrepreneur in my home country Indonesia.

Programme: LLB Law, 2010

Current Position:  Senior Executive, Legal Department, Central Bank of Malaysia

I recently graduated from the LSE under a full scholarship from the Central Bank of Malaysia and have since returned to work in the Legal Department of the Bank. Studying at the LSE was a stimulating experience due to its unique emphasis on socio-legal theory and the variety of specialist subjects available.   It has given me a good theoretical foundation which I am now able to apply in my advisory work for the Bank, which encompasses many areas of law including commercial law, constitutional and administrative law, and public international law. The Law Department also provides excellent supervision from leading academics in their respective fields. As a result, my undergraduate dissertation for Competition Law will be published as an article in an upcoming issue of a European law journal in mid-2011.

Programme: BSc Economics, 2006

Current Position:  Senior Commodity Analyst, Thomson Reuters GFMS, London

Since graduating from LSE in 2006, I have taken up a host of roles both in the private and public sector. I started my career in Barclays as a graduate analyst under their equity capital markets rotation programme. Thereafter, I took up an opportunity in Asia to work for a sovereign wealth fund with the Malaysia government where I was involved in developing high impact national projects to help attract foreign investments into the country. The role subsequently opened up doors to explore the commodities sector which is my present role, an analyst covering the metals and mining sector.

Programme: BSc Government and Economics, 2006

Current Position: Manager, IE Singapore

I am currently a Manager at IE Singapore, a Singapore government agency that promotes trade, exports and investments overseas. My role includes project identification and development work with multilateral institutions such as the World Bank, International Finance Corporation and other regional development banks. The work gives me an insight into public sector processes (sometimes frustrating), infrastructure development and overseas development assistance.

Programme: BA History, 2012

Current Position: Social Science Editor, World Scientific Publishing and Imperial College Press, Singapore

I am a social science editor with World Scientific Publishing and Imperial College Press. I've always been interested in going into the publishing industry and being a history graduate has not been of any disadvantage to me in applying for work experience/jobs in this field. In fact, my background and interest in history has opened a lot of doors for me and I have fortunate enough to edit many books related to my interests in Middle East history and current affairs. I have also been able to meet a lot of academics, consultants and intellectuals to discuss publishing opportunities-- to sum up, bringing history and political science topics to life and to print has been very rewarding so far!
