Programme: BSc Human Resource Management and Employment Relations, 2010
Current Position: MSc Student - Modern Chinese Studies, Oxford
I recently graduated from LSE with the degree of BSc in Human Resource Management & Employment Relations. LSE has broadened my knowledge and taught me how to implement such knowledge in real-life situations. This is evident in my decision to write a dissertation on sweatshop conditions in Indonesia. As I'm still hungry for knowledge, I've decided to continue my studies at Oxford by undertaking the MSc in Modern Chinese Studies. Due to the course's emphasis on developments in modern China, I wish to write my dissertation on the topic of the impact of economic reforms on labor relations.

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: BA History, 2012
Current Position: Editor, World Scientific Publishing, Singapore
I am an editor with the Social Sciences department of an independent Asian publishing house called World Scientific. I've always been interesting 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; I have met a lot of interesting people from all walks of life (sometimes from the most unexpected of places) in both London and Singapore since I entered (and now graduated from) LSE.

Programme: MSc Development Studies, 2008
Current Position: Manager, Dam Safety Programme, Damwatch Services Ltd.
I am a civil engineer, specialising in dams and dam safety. Dams and their role in development are controversial, and yet also a necessary part of water and renewable energy management. After completing my MSc in Development Studies, I have returned to work in a dam engineering firm, and have been able to instigate leads and participate in dam related aid projects with significantly broader and deeper knowledge of the complex drivers for not only donor agencies and governments, but also developing countries.

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. LSE has been a great foundation for this, not just for the courses I took there, but giving a level of comfort in dealing with people from every part of the world.

Programme: MSc Real Estate Economics and Finance, 2009
Current Position: Owner, Brookes Mercantile & Trading Co. Ltd, Bangkok
After LSE, I moved to back to Bangkok and easily found a job in real estate development. Having a foreign degree with the name brand of LSE certainly eased the job process for me. When meeting other businessmen here, it is easy to notice the immediate respect and recognition you get when you mention London and LSE together. I recently left my previous job to start my own trading company, and the LSE name and networks I made at the School has helped tremendously in opening up new opportunities around the world.
