About

I graduated from King’s College London with a BSc in Political Economy, furthering my learning with programmes at Oxford & Harvard prior to joining Google. Whilst funding my own degree, I built my first company which raised over £900,000 for charity and interest-free funding. With my experience, I cofounded Scoodle, an award winning mobile app that connects students and teachers.

I was wondering what careers economics can give you after graduation and whether this statement is true?
