Studying IPE at City has proved to be the ideal platform to move on to business school.
"The intrinsic relationship between market dynamics and power structures was always something I found interesting, particularly since I was beginning university in the aftermath of seismic world events, most notably the global financial crisis and the middle-eastern uprisings. In light of this, I was at loggerheads between studying economics or international politics. So, naturally, when I learned that City were offering the new IPE degree, I knew it was the perfect course for me!
During my studies, I felt the programme provided me with a thorough grounding on theoretical aspects, allowing me to explore the unique angles with which the IPE discipline interprets current affairs, culminating in a dissertation that explored the possibility of a world financial authority. The entire faculty, and in particular my supervisor, made this research period an intellectually stimulating and rewarding experience.
As for my next endeavour, I am now heading to the Imperial College Business School to study Management with Financial Services. Studying IPE has certainly proved to be the ideal platform from which I can move on to business school, whereby I may draw upon my aptitude for analysing abstract ideas, complement theory with practise, and thus see how these theories affect the real world."
