I joined LSE having read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the undergraduate level. I was attracted by the clear focus of the course content, which would allow me to obtain a good depth of understanding of the subject within a short space of time. One also could not deny the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of […]
I came to LSE with a background in theoretical physics. My hope was to get the philosophical background needed to do research on the philosophical foundations of physics. The courses I took in the MSc programme in Philosophy of Science were simply excellent and prepared me well for my current studies as a PhD Fellow at the […]
After completing the Master’s programme in philosophy and public policy, I resumed work at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, where I am involved in strategic planning and performance management. I am very happy that I did the programme. It has exposed me to new and interesting ideas, concepts and perspectives, and at times, forced me to step […]
After finishing my Dissertation in September 2012 I moved to New York to look for work and ended up doing temp work for a small tech company while applying and interviewing for full-time jobs. In January I was very fortunate to get a full time offer from Bain & Company’s London office. I’m certain that doing well […]
I arrived at the LSE with a ‘traditional’ Philosophy background and a hope that the concepts and values I had studied could be usefully applied to explore and perhaps help resolve current public policy challenges. After a year’s worth of debates on secessionist ethics, climate change and democratic dilemmas (etc), I felt that the Philosophy and Public […]
I am currently working in Spectron Desarrollo, a public policy consultancy here in Mexico City. We get the chance to study and analyse both federal and state programs. The job is very fulfilling—it is quite similar to the analysis we learned at LSE but done on Mexican policies.
Having graduated from the LSE in September 2012, I joined Oliver Wyman’s London office as a Junior Consultant in January 2013. Prior to that, I completed an internship with the German Foreign Office’s Permanent Mission to the OECD in Paris. My degree in Philosophy and Public Policy (PPP) has helped me secure both roles in three distinct […]
Currently, I’m working as an Economic Policy Analyst at the Louisiana Department of Revenue in the United States. My work centers around tax policy, but in particular, I’m working on our governor’s tax reform measure. I have been responsible for developing a lot of the policy that’s going into the governor’s proposal as well as for analytic […]
Shortly after returning to Poland, I started a journalist internship in a big Polish weekly (circulation approx 130,000). I am writing mostly about the impact of science and technology on our interconnected society. This is very much related to my studies at LSE (MSc Philosophy of Science).
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 […]
