Victoria Slater, '14

Victoria Slater, Albion College Class of 2014Major: Economics and Management (graduated December 2013)

Activities: Intern, Level One Bank, loan and deposit operations; study-abroad, London School of Economics, 2012-2013 academic year

Current: Candidate, MSc, Economic History, London School of Economics (2014-2015)

How did Albion help you pursue your path to London?

Albion has a very strong relationship with several study-abroad programs, one of which is LSE. I was able to study at LSE for one year during undergrad because of these ties that gave me an advantage in applying to postgraduate programs. The Economics and Management Department really prepared me with challenging courses and amazing professors who were always available to help with course work and general advice. I was able to learn study and organizational skills from them that will make grad school a lot easier.

For me, Albion ...

... has been a crucial part of my overall education, allowing me to be a competitive candidate for grad school and future jobs. Albion has offered so many opportunities that I would not have gotten from a larger school or a school without so many important ties to other universities and alumni.
