During the 2014-2015 academic year, I took one-year masters course at the London School of Economics and Political science in risk and finance. The program is run by the finance department with collaboration from the law, accounting, geography, sociology, and accounting departments. I focused on financial & corporate crime, quantitative financial risk management, and comparative regulatory philosophy.
My studies were funded through the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Marshall Scholarship scheme, following a year in University College London’s MSc economic policy course.
During my year at LSE, I worked on several research projects, including a study of criminal market manipulation by high frequency traders with the LSE Law and Financial Markets Project, a study of JPMorgan Chase’s 2014 conduct costs for the Conduct Costs Project, and a novel microeconomic model of corporate criminal prosecution in the context of Too Big To Jail financial institutions.
