  • Title: Alumni Placement - Trade, Finance, Development - Barcelona GSE
    Descriptive info: » Alumni Outlook.. The background I gained in macroeconomics, banking and financial markets during the Barcelona GSE Master benefits me strongly in my daily work and provides a solid base for understanding the variety of new issues and concepts I ve been facing since my start.. Julian Ebner 12.. Trainee.. European Central Bank.. Alumni Outlook.. Class of 2013.. Alex Hansson.. Analyst.. Credit Suisse.. Global External Asset Management.. I am currently working in the Technology Solutions team within the External Asset Management department at Credit Suisse.. What that means is that I support my colleagues on technology related projects for our clients including: analyzing investment strategies against available technology solutions; coordinating the implementation of new platforms (e.. g.. trading or portfolio management systems); and monitoring and analyzing the use of those platforms.. The work is demanding and manifold, but has been made easier to carry out with the knowledge and skills that I was able to gain during the Barcelona GSE Master in International Trade, Finance and Development.. Specifically, Prof.. Peydró s courses [on financial institutions, systemic risk, and financial crises] have really helped me to understanding the current and soon to be implemented banking regulations and how they will impact not just banks but also asset managers.. Indeed, having platforms that can screen investments in terms of their suitability, given current regulations, is something which is heavily demanded by our asset managers and which we are working on to implement at the moment.. Class of 2012.. Gieltje Adriaans.. Project Associate.. Innovations for Poverty Action.. After having worked for eight months as a project associate in Peru, I transferred to Sierra Leone this June to work on the impact evaluation of a large public health intervention that aims to improve service delivery through community monitoring and non-financial awards.. The intervention is implemented in four rural districts and funded by the World Bank.. Data collection has just been completed and as a project associate I am responsible for data management, analysis and report delivery, thereby reporting to the principal investigators Johannes Haushofer (MIT), Bilal Siddiqi (Stanford University) and Oeindrila Dube (NYU).. The master program in International Trade, Finance and Development prepared me very well for this position, both in terms of the in-depth training I received in econometric methods and in understanding the interaction between research and development policy that is crucial in development research.. Constantin Albot.. ODI Fellow/Economist.. Overseas Development Institute.. As an ODI Fellow working for the Bank of South Sudan, my primary role is to provide capacity in departments where it is lacking so that processes within the bank and its performance as a public institution more broadly can benefit.. My first assignment was with the financial markets division, where I helped to reconcile the bank s foreign exchange accounts held with corresponding institutions.. No such reconciliation had taken place since the bank switched from manual records to an electronic payment system back in 2011.. Going forward, I m hoping to get involved with other divisions as well, such as statistics, general accounts and operations, in order to get a more complete exposure to the bank s workings.. The theoretical background gained through the ITFD program in topics such as growth, monetary policy and institutions, as well as the capacity to approach issues in a constructive way, have proved to be of great help throughout these challenges.. Samuel Chapman.. Research Analyst.. Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.. As a Research Analyst at the Cleveland Fed, my responsibilities involve background research/lit review, data collection/cleaning, data analysis (use of statistical software), writing and editing.. as well as dissecting and analyzing new releases of economic indicators.. The daily work is quite diverse and each day is different from others.. I may have an economist come to me and say they have to give a presentation on the labor market in a few weeks.. I will then spend a week or so creating a presentation on leading labor market indicators and help them obtain the information and data they need.. Eye on Alumni feature.. Julian Ebner.. I spent my first six months as a trainee in the ECB s Financial Research Division before moving to the Directorate General Financial Stability.. As part of a working group dedicated to the establishment of the Single Supervisory Mechanism for banks in the euro area many of my tasks evolve around an extensive mapping of banking group structures.. I also frequently receive ad hoc requests for notes or reports on particular technical issues that emerge while the regulatory framework is being established.. Almost all of my tasks involve coordination with the different national supervisory authorities, which is a great chance to get exposure to senior experts and benefit from their experience.. I think the background I gained in macroeconomics, banking and financial markets during the Barcelona GSE Master benefits me strongly in my daily work and provides a solid base for understanding the variety of new issues and concepts I ve been facing since my start.. Cristina Rodríguez.. Research Assistant.. Bank of Spain.. I am a Research Assistant in the External Sector Unit in the Economic Analysis and Forecasting Department at the Bank of Spain.. My main responsibilities include data analysis, literature review and writing reports regarding the Balance  ...   Organization as a statistician right after graduating.. My main responsibility is the collection, analysis and dissemination of trade statistics, with a particular focus on trade in services.. The year spent at Barcelona GSE gave me the analytical tools to understand what are the forces behind the trade flows I measure every day in my working life.. Andrea Papadia.. PhD Student.. London School of Economics.. The Master at Barcelona GSE was fundamental for my development, principally in two ways.. First of all, it exposed me directly to the work of world-class researchers, which is now influencing my own research.. Secondly, the Master contributed decisively to my curiosity and appetite for research.. During my time in Barcelona, I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in economic research.. I enjoyed the intellectual challenges I had to face so much that I wanted to keep working on them.. After the Master I had two main professional experiences.. Shortly after leaving Barcelona, I did a trainee-ship at the EU Delegation in Beijing, China.. There, I worked in the Development and Cooperation Section, helping to manage a number of projects in the fields of Trade, Law and Transportation.. In 2013, I joined the UK Government Economic Service working for the Ministry of Justice as Assistant Economist dealing mainly with the international aspects of the work of the Ministry.. My research at LSE is going to focus on topics in International Finance with an historical perspective.. I will carry out a combination of empirical and theoretical research to identify the lessons that history can provide us to understand both past and current Economic events.. Saffet Tinaztepe.. Citigroup.. (New York).. I have two primary responsibilities.. First, I am a corporate banking analyst on a coverage team that is responsible for banking technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) clients with whom Citigroup has had a historically stressed relationship.. My second responsibility is to calculate our expected return on loan deals that are proposed by other TMT corporate and investment bankers.. Eye on Alumni Feature.. Class of 2009.. Vera Bakman.. Russia and Kazakhstan Program Assistant.. Partners in Health.. (Boston).. While at Barcelona GSE, I focused my coursework on Economic Growth and Development with the hope of pursuing a career in an international non-governmental organization (INGO) working to bring meaningful change to people living in emerging and developing countries.. After completing the master program, I spent some time interning at local non-profit, non-governmental organizations in Nicaragua and Haiti and recently joined a renowned INGO working to provide a preferential option for the poor in healthcare.. In my current position at Partners In Health, I am responsible for delivering financial and programmatic support to our Russia and Kazakhstan-based teams.. Edoardo Campanella.. Economic Advisor.. Italian Senate.. (Rome).. Before coming to the Italian Senate, I worked in the Economic Research Department at the WTO headquarters in Geneva.. My task was to help prepare the draft of the World Trade Report 2010, the main publication of the research unit.. The topic for 2010 was very appealing: we studied the relationship between natural resources and global governance.. My role in the project was to manage data sets, review economic literature, and write content for the publication about specific issues and policy-relevant examples.. Edward Corcoran.. (London).. I work within the Financial Regulation and Markets section of HM Treasury, the UK s finance and economics ministry.. My work combines research, analysis and policy development on a range of areas related to the financial sector, including prudential banking regulation, macro-prudential tools and frameworks, and.. transparency and disclosure by financial institutions.. Juan Montecino.. Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR).. I landed a job as a research assistant more or less right after getting to D.. C.. and having ITFD on my resume certainly helped.. I am working in the international side of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, a small progressive think tank here in Washington, DC.. My duties consist mostly of researching IMF policy and Latin American economic developments, which is exactly what I wanted.. alumni top.. - Class of 2013..
