Thank you to all alumni who returned to campus this fall

We want to say a big thank you to all of the alumni that have come back to campus this fall to support the numerous Career Services events that have been held for the Class of 2019. The current students have really valued the opportunity to hear from alumni and see how their careers have progressed since graduating from the Barcelona GSE.

The recent International Organization Events held in October, were attended by four alumni, who participated in company presentations and a panel that discussed the “Guidelines regarding international organizations in general” and the “points to consider if you are thinking about applying to such organizations versus the private sector”. 
The alumni that attended included:

  • Gady Saiovici (Econ ‘09)
    International Labor Organization (ILO)
  • Rodrigo Deiana (ITFD ‘11)
    Junior Policy Analyst
    Africa unit of the OECD Development Center
  • Thang Nguyen (EPP ‘13) and Paris Regional Ambassador
    Junior Policy Analyst
    Africa unit of the OECD Development Center
  • Alberto Osnago (Econ ‘09)
    Trade Policy Analyst
    World Trade Organization

Alum Rodrigo Deiana commented that the event was a great opportunity to "come back to the Barcelona GSE with other alumni from OECD, WTO and ILO to share our personal experience in International Organisations and talk to the bright and motivated current students about their career aspirations."



We also held a Consulting Day in October, that brought 13 alumni back to the Barcelona GSE and showed the students the value that a Master’s from the School has across the sector.
