Student Profiles

John Murphy

"I am very happy to say that after a year I have been offered a new position within the local authority, the London Borough of Barnet, working within the Overview and Scrutiny Office. Since completing the MSc in Environment and International Development I[...] have been continuing study on a part time basis at Warwick Business School on a postgraduate course on local government management. Long term I am hoping to explore the possibility of undertaking a PhD in the area of governance perhaps focusing on the role and influence of stakeholders, particularly NGOs and other non-government actors such as think tanks." - MSc Environment and International Development
