Alumni video: Meet Siddharth Merchant (MPP/MPA 2016)

The dual degree alum reflected on his two-year master's in London and Berlin, and the friendships he formed along the way.

After completing an MPP/MPA dual-degree programme with the Hertie School and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in 2016, Siddharth Merchant went on to work as an analyst in the Blue Economy Division at the World Bank. Usually based in Mumbai or New Delhi, India, Siddharth sat down for a chat with us during the 2022 Alumni Reunion and Hertie Summit in Berlin to reflect on studying in two cities, the lifelong friendships he formed, and the skills he learned in his master's that he still uses today.
