This programme is special

"I have gone out of my way to tell my friends and professors back home in the US how special the MPhil in Technology Policy programme is and how much it enhanced my education in the developing field of biometrics.

"Before I entered this programme, I had completed two undergraduate degrees, in biometric systems and computer engineering, and a couple of internships - including one in the White House, and another in the US Defense Department's Biometrics Management Office. These experiences really boosted my interest in the policy questions, ethics and privacy concerns that surround the issue of gathering people's personal information.

"Then I came to Cambridge Judge Business School and found a programme full of other people just like me; engineers and scientists who were interested not only in furthering technology, but also in international relations, politics and business. It was the greatest pleasure, being around like-minded people."
