Student Profile(s)

Agathe Gout

The Global Political Economy Master's degree I undertook at City University London gave me the necessary academic and research skills to launch an international career in the development field. Having worked upon financial inclusion challenges in Argentina for my GPE dissertation, I had the opportunity to join the microfinance platform Accion in New-York for a six-month internship right after graduation. I then started as a financial analyst for BNP Paribas' microfinance department headquartered in Paris, and after an extra year of experience I am now heading to Bogota to work on Latin-American infrastructure projects as part of the Bank's Corporate & Investment Banking branch. Being a GPE student has truly been a door opening experience which today allows me to work in a field I am passionate about.
