New special interest groups

The group was formed in June 2010, and provides a significant platform through which alumni working in an array of careers in government and politics can share common interests and career experiences of the sector, and debate key political and current affairs issues. The group has close links with the Department of Government and the LSE Public Policy Group, and works with local alumni groups in other major centres of government around the world. The group is led by a Management Committee, chaired by Rosehanna Chowdhury (LLB 2004, LLM 2005), and was formally launched at an event at LSE on 25 November 2010.

This new group provides a programme of intellectual, professional networking and social events on campus and in industry related venues, so alumni who work in the banking and finance sectors can network with each other

and debate industry issues with experts and opinion formers. The group will also build close relationships with banking and finance related academic departments and research centres of LSE, so alumni can remain informed of sector related research, and will create networks within companies in the sector. The group is being led by an interim committee of alumni who work in the banking and financial sectors, and is planning a series of events for 2010-11.
