Dan Nixon attended Cambridge University in 2006-07 on a studentship funded by the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation. Now at the Bank of England, he writes:
“After studying an MPhil in Economics in Cambridge funded by a MDFJF studentship and an MA in Global Studies in Tokyo, I joined the Bank of England in September 2008. As you can imagine, it´s been a pretty interesting time to work at a central bank.
Working in the international economics division, my job involves briefing the Monetary Policy Committee on developments in the world economy, including trying to understand movements in commodity prices–very topical! The work we cover here is fascinating and I´m grateful to Marjorie and the foundation for the opportunities that the studentship has afforded me.”
The window for applications for this year´s studentships will open soon. Details will be announced on this website.
