Luc Razafimandimby

Before I joined the University of Reading, I worked as a consultant to the World Bank. I then decided I needed to further strengthen my understanding of development if I was to apply for a regular position in this organisation. The Development Finance programme in Reading with its large range of development & finance related modules, greatly helped me to deepen & widen my knowledge. Apart from the academic benefits, I also greatly enjoyed the social life at the University and the opportunity to meet fellow-students from so many different countries and backgrounds. The Graduate Institute was a home for all of us.
