Student Profile(s)

Chul Kim

I have worked in the Korean government for several years as an economic policy maker. I needed a new momentum to improve my policy development capacity and I thought that the world class Local Economic Development (LED) program at the LSE was the best course to meet my needs.

It has been a thrill to participate in classes with the best faculty. The lectures and seminars were very interactive, and there were many things that could be applied directly in the policy field. In addition, I made wonderful friends from all over the world who became my precious assets.

Marc LeBlanc

I am a Policy Officer at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I provide operational and strategic support to our National Board of Directors, while managing special research and outreach projects on national policy issues impacting local governments.

My experience at LSE provided me the training to be a critical and strategic thinker and to better identify and assess issues impacting FCM's membership. During my time at LSE, I built an international network of LSE students, faculty and alumni, with whom I have formed lasting and successful relationships in both my professional and personal life. I also earned real-world work experience by interning with an MP through the LSE Parliamentary Internship Programme.
