Upon completing the MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy, I accepted a consulting analyst position with Accenture in Silicon Valley.  The rigorous analytical training of the programme provided an invaluable opportunity to develop my logical reasoning skills and strengthen my communicative ability.  Despite having never formally studied philosophy, I was at no disadvantage and my supervisor helped me to form a dissertation topic utilising the strengths of my undergraduate training.  Additionally, the breadth of subject matter was continually stimulating, from Kantian ethics to climate change, game theory and the limits of econometric models.
