Alumni Voices



After graduating in Economics, I decided to undertake MESCI to both deepen my knowledge in quantitative methods and develop a more practical approach to economic related issues. Through MESCI’s partnership with international organizations, I was able to secure an internship with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Following the completion of my internship, I joined the FAO in Food Security and Early Warning, where I am currently working as economist. My principal role at FAO focuses on monitoring and analysing food price trends at national and international level and their implications for food security. I had a strong ambition to work in the field of international development and undertaking MESCI significantly helped me to achieve this goal.
