I thoroughly enjoyed my PPP studies at the LSE. I came from a different background (Literature), but rather than a hindrance, it made the whole experience even more enriching for me. It’s been great to engage in applied philosophical thinking, as it enhanced my analytical skills at the ideal and non-ideal level alike.
I now am a finance trainee for the London Borough of Southwark, and I study public finance and accountancy two days a week. I have been pleasantly surprised that many of the topics discussed in the courses I took at the LSE are relevant and valuable in my current position too. Moreover, it’s rewarding to be able to look at policy issues from two different but complementary angles: the qualitative/philosophical one and the quantitative/financial one.
