Dear MPA offer holder, Danny2014-Cropped-100x100

Welcome to a world of career opportunities.

The LSE Master of Public Administration provides you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to build a great career. The academic rigour of the MPA curriculum and its practical application through the MPA Capstone Projects, Skills Development Seminars and internships has attracted some of the leading global employers from Strategy Houses, Government, NGOS and International Organisations.

My name is Danny Wilkey and I am the Careers Consultant for the MPA programme. It has been my pleasure to work with many MPA students supporting their career ideas through careers coaching and dedicated professional development seminars.

I have found MPA students to be highly motivated and keen to make an impact in the world. We will work together closely with you to help maximise your career opportunities. As an LSE student you will have access to all that LSE Careers has to offer. This includes the Careers Fairs and employers seminars among other features.

In addition, we have the bespoke programme of MPA Career Seminars and dedicated one to one MPA career coaching sessions. We work closely with the MPA programme team and the MPA Student Association to ensure you have the best possible professional development opportunities here at the LSE.

MPA students particularly value our large employer events such as our International Organisation Day and International Development Events Programme. Moreover, this year we are very excited to launch two new MPA Career initiatives. This will include a series of MPA employer visits and a tailored networking event for MPA students in the Lent Term of 2017.

I am really looking forward to meeting you on Thursday, 15th September at your extended induction workshop. This will give you a flying start in thinking about the career activities which will complement both your MPA studies and personal career objectives.

My best wishes for a great two years on the MPA.

Danny Wilkey
MPA Careers Consultant
