Julio López Alvarado, Alumni Ambassador

Originally a Marine Scientist from Spain, over time I recognised the need to get formal training and education in other areas, such as economics and management, that would round up my skills set. The University of London International Programmes offered me the best programmes for my situation, being employed full-time.

I now work in aquaculture development in Ecuador. This area is in the border between technology, economics and social sciences. My Economics and Management degree helped me to study problems from many different points of view, approaching projects in a holistic way.

From my experience, I hope I can help some prospective students to start (and finish) a University of London degree, that will definitely make a difference in their lives.
