The LSE Experience – Getting in and making the most of it!!!!

Date: 21st November 2020 from 5pm to 6:30pm (IST)

The Economics Club Mumbai and The Department of Economics, St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai (Autonomous) jointly organised the online lecture on “The LSE Experience – Getting in and making the most of it!” by Dr. James Abdey from the London School of Economics and Political Science!


The Economics Club Mumbai wished to explore places which have immense historical and cultural significance and excellent educational institutions, but are not on the list of popular education destinations for Indians. That is how the idea of the Mediterranean trip was conceived by selecting places where western philosophy and renaissance was born. In May 2019, around 36 students and 5 teachers travelled to France, Monaco, Italy and Greece and visited some of the most reputed and oldest universities - The University of Milan, Bocconi University, University of Bologna, John Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS Europe) and Istituto Marangoni, a School of Fashion and Design.


“Through this unique trip we aimed to provide students an exposure to the best educational opportunities and a chance to experience life in global cities, to stimulate appreciation of diverse cultures and above all to inspire students to dream big!”, exclaimed Shobhana Panikar, Co-Founder of The Economics Club Mumbai. The Club organised an educational tour in May 2018 to leading universities in UK and France including Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, SOAS, LSE, University of London and Sciences Po. This unique trip for social sciences students in Mumbai, has motivated these students to aim high and prepare for studies in the best universities…
