We caught up with Erasmus University's Jose when he was in London en route to the British Open golf in Scotland.

Jose, a native of Bogota, Columbia, just completed a one-year masters degree in Financial Economics.

With several years of commercial banking behind him, Jose is looking for a banking or insurance role in Europe, though he knows the odds are against him in the current climate. He's not averse to returning to Columbia, where he has a job offer, but he'll really miss working with people from around the world.

Impressively, ten hours aboard a coach on British motorways hasn't diminished his ability to field dumb questions.
