Elise Lefeuvre

Junior, Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank

MSc Criminal Justice Policy, 2014

Why did you choose LSE, and why did you choose your programme of study?

I wanted to study at LSE for its excellent reputation. From an academic perspective, LSE is intellectually challenging and stimulates the curiosity of the students. It was a pleasure to study in such a dynamic atmosphere. Moreover, the professors and the administrative staff were dedicated to our well-being and our success. From a professional perspective, the employers totally trust the high quality of the education at LSE and the skills of its alumni.

I joined the MSc Criminal Justice Policy as I wanted to focus my legal studies on white-collar crime. LSE has the flexibility to let the students design their own programme (i.e. choice of courses among an important panel of courses). Thus, it is possible to design a programme that fits totally to our intellectual/career goals. Therefore, I was able to take Financial and Banking Law courses in parallel of the Criminal Law study.

Overall, how do you look back on your LSE experience?

LSE was a determining experience, insofar as it teaches me to work with high exigencies and to be persistent. The working discipline learnt at LSE is an incontestable asset for my career.

Please describe your career path to date:

On the academic side: doctorate in Law at the Humboldt-University of Berlin (Germany)

On the professional side: Junior at Crédit Agricole CIB

Why did you choose your current job?

I chose this job in order to start in career in the Banking sector.

Tell us about your current job:

I am junior at the COO's Office (Senior Management), that is to say I assist the COO in all her daily tasks (strategy, coordination etc.).

What advice do you have for LSE students who are looking to enter a similar profession to you?

I would suggest them to follow the Banking and Financial Law courses. They are excellent and I always refer to them in my daily work.
