London is far more than a collection of large international businesses: it houses more of the world’s leading universities than any other city; more of the world’s most visited museums and galleries; and has the strongest entrepreneurial cluster in Europe, whose start-ups are a vibrant part of a broad ecosystem of small-, medium- and large-sized businesses across sectors.
The city’s fundamental strengths in research, talent, creativity and finance should make it an unparalleled location for commercial innovation and it already has as many technology and information workers outside manufacturing as San Francisco and San Jose combined. Many global students have now chosen London as an educational hub to continue pursuing their studies specifically in the area of economics and political science.
The London School of Economics (LSE) is one of the foremost social science universities in the world which has attracted such students and has an international intake. Recently Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat gave a lecture on the future of the commonwealth at the LSE and praised the university for its research and teachings which span the full breadth of the social sciences. Founded in 1895, the School has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence whilst it is noted that 16 Nobel Prize winners have been LSE staff or alumni.
EXANTE representatives will be guest speakers at the conference held at LSE addressing the most important issues and events facing the financial world in 2016. The forum is organised by LSE SU Russian Business, and its aim is to create a platform for discussion of social and business-related issues whilst offering students career and networking opportunities with policymakers, financiers and businessmen. Both Gatis Eligitis and Anatoli Knyazev, EXANTE Co-Founders, will join the guests and invited speakers.
'EXANTE are proud to be associated with such an event and with the LSE,' stated Patrick J O’ Brien, EXANTE’s communication director. — 'We believe today’s students have a remarkable aptitude for conceptualizing entrepreneurial ideas and play a pivotal role in shaping our economy over the next few years.'
The Event will be held between the 19th – 27th February 2015 at the LSE London. The agenda of the conference is available here.
