Aleksi Lahikainen

Aleksi is a first-year undergraduate at the London School of Economics and Political Science, pursuing a BSc in International Relations and History. Throughout his degree years, he plans to specialise in international political economy. Before moving to the UK for university, Aleksi graduated from the IB Diploma Programme at Ressu Upper Secondary School and completed his military service. He applied to study IR & History at the LSE, because of the university’s globally renowned expertise in social sciences as well as its extremely international and diverse student body. Aleksi gained only a limited amount of first-hand advice and information about applying to the LSE and is therefore glad to play a role in helping others make more informed decisions before and during their application process. After finishing his university studies, Aleksi plans to pursue a career that combines his interests in business and politics, perhaps in political risk, development or public affairs consultancy.
