What students say
Indy Hothi Economist, Ernst & Young BSc Economics, 2010
I have a passion for discovering how the world works and am very interested in social entrepreneurship and exploring ways corporate organisations can positively contribute to society. SOAS gave me an outstanding degree and education, plus also a deep appreciation of global and social issues, which I don’t think I would have necessarily found anywhere else. My role at Ernst & Young involves advising public and private sector organisations on the economic, social and fi scal impact of their organisations. My typical day comprises of meeting clients and working with teams of consultants to develop innovative solutions to address these challenges. Additionally, I am a trustee for an international humanitarian aid organisation. My involvement in the charitable sector has led me to the frontline in a number of disaster and civil conflict zones including Haiti, Bosnia, Iraq and Lebanon.
