Studied: Latin and Classics at Franklin & Marshall College, USA
Interested in: Marketing/Technology Industry
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Coming from a liberal arts background, deciding whether business school was the right path for me and then balancing GMAT and essay preparation while working full time.
About me: I was born and raised in Washington, D.C. where I attended an all girls' high school. Growing up in the hub of politics, economics, and business shaped my outlook tremendously and encouraged open mindedness and nuanced thinking. For my undergraduate degree, I spent semesters abroad in both Italy and Greece where I focused on putting theory into practice. Prior to attending London Business School, I worked in the employment law department of a full-service law firm and I worked closely with the firm's local business clients and in-house counsel to a Fortune 100 business. Inspired by the dynamism of the clients we worked with, I wanted to challenge myself by exploring a career in business. At London Business School, I have joined the Industry Club, Tech Club, and Retail and Luxury Goods Club, and endeavour to enrich the student experience through my role as Academic Representative.
Studied: Economics at the University of Warwick, UK
Interested in: Entrepreneurship and Marketing
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Communicating my enthusiasm for the programme through the required application which included preparing for GMAT and writing down the essay questions in a way that reflected my personality and passion for London Business School.
About me: I was born and raised in Bulgaria where I attended an American high school. The culturally diverse environment there gave me an immense appreciation for differing backgrounds and the multitude of perspectives they bring. Growing up in a small Eastern European country has shaped me as an open-minded person eager to explore the world. For the last three years, I have been actively assisting my family business while exploring the banking and consulting industries through summer internships at Deloitte and UniCredit. I have come to realize that what keeps me going at the end of the day is the idea of managing my own business. Currently, I am determined to gain experience by pursuing a career in marketing but my long term career goal is to be an entrepreneur. I am truly passionate about volunteering, music, dancing, choreography, and travelling and I am trying to develop those interests through the clubs at London Business School. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions.

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Completing the essays and knowing what information to include; preparing for the interview.
About me: I was born in the United Kingdom but moved to Jersey (Channel Islands) at an early age.

I have an interest in the financial markets, in particular trading, so a sales and trading position is well suited to me. I enjoy a wide range of musical and sports activities and look to use London Business School as an exciting year on which to build my future career. I am happy to answer any questions you might have about applying, living and experiencing London or how to make the most of London Business School for your career aims.

I have simultaneously read for three concurrent undergraduate degrees - Economics, Law and Liberal Arts - at two different universities. Regarding professional experience, I have worked for Bayer and Deloitte. I am absolutely passionate about liberty. I find diversity to be as fascinating as it is necessary for the progress of mankind, and I think that we, as 'Citizens of the World', ought to be constantly on guard for protecting freedom, which is never to be taken for granted. This will, of course, provide the best possible setting for business, thus creating a wealth of unique opportunities for each and all of us. I thoroughly enjoy many artistic expressions: I love music, movies, theatre, and literature. I love Flamenco and I am a hardcore Barça fan. I am also very fond of poker, but I do not ever bluff. Never… Feel free to reach out with any questions.
Studied: Business Administration at Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico
Interested in: Marketing, FMCG and Retail
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Finding the time and organising my schedule so that I could prepare for the GMAT and write my essays while I was finishing the last year of my undergraduate studies, working part-time, and doing social service.
About me: I was born and raised in Mexico but lived in the US for four years during elementary school. During the last year of my undergraduate degree at Universidad Iberoamericana, I attended Harvard Summer School. As I really enjoyed the international environment, I decided I wanted to study my masters abroad as well. For two years, I worked part-time in the planning department at Macmillan Publishers which helped me balance theory and practice. I enjoy travelling, playing volleyball and doing volunteer work. As time passes by, I am more confident that coming to London Business School was one of the best decisions I could have ever made in my life.

Studied: Economics at the University of Southampton, UK
Interested in: Investment Banking
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: To strike a balance between making a good impression amongst the admissions team at public events and constructing a stellar application that would justify my strong interest in the program. At the time, I was interning full-time as a Front Desk Futures Trader so I really had quite a few responsibilities to juggle at once.
About me: I was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. Graduating from high school after completing the IB Diploma, I decided to come to the UK to further my interest in Economics. Pursuant to the completion of my undergraduate degree, I took a gap year to explore opportunities within Finance in Europe and Asia. Given that London is the world's major financial hub, coming to London Business School was an easy choice for me. I feel lucky to be part of such a talented group of people and I look forward to pursuing my passion for Investment Banking in the future. Apart from English and Greek, I'd like to think that I can also speak Spanish and German so should you wish to contact me in any of these languages, feel free to do so and I'll be happy to answer any questions about the program.
Studied: International Business at Aalto University, Finland
Interested in: Management Consulting
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: By the time I was applying, I had been working as a full-time analyst for a while. As a result, I had developed good understanding of the business skills that I wanted to hone and strengthen during my masters studies. The challenge was finding a programme that would best meet my academic and professional interests.
About me: I grew up in Finland where I spent most of my childhood. An exchange student year abroad at the age of fifteen sparked my interest in International Business which I studied as my undergraduate degree, both at Aalto University in Finland and Columbia University in New York. Upon graduation, I started working as an analyst. During my Masters in Management studies, I have noticed the value of having prior work experience as it allows me to develop insightful connections between academics and real life business contexts. At London Business School, I enjoy the enriching and dynamic environment that provides endless opportunities for personal and professional development. As much as I look forward to developing the community forward in my roles as Class Representative and Consulting Club Executive Committee member, I also look forward to learning the principles of sailing at the Sailing Club. I am excited to get to know prospective MiM applicants and answer any questions related to the programme or London Business School experience in general.
Studied: Pharmacy at the University of Lisbon, Portugal
Interested in: Consulting, Pharmaceutical Industry
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Preparing for the GMAT was definitely a big challenge because I had only a couple of weeks to do so. Another challenge was to choose the business school that was the best fit for my aspirations. Websites are a great source of information but they don't really answer "What is my life going to be as a London Business School student?" The answer to this question is critical to make a good choice. Therefore, before applying I talked to several former MiMs, visited London Business School campus and I was (and still am) convinced this is the best Business School for me.
About me: I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. Even tough, I did not study management as an undergraduate I have always been very interested in this subject. Also, I have always desired to pursue and international career and while at University I did an exchange programme in Berlin, Germany. These two factors combined led me to London Business School and more specifically to the Masters in Management 2013 class. Before joining London Business School I worked for over a year in Pharma at a management position. On a personal note I am a huge sailing addict and a motor sport fan. I will gladly share my student experience regarding applications, clubs, life at campus, etc. Thus, feel free to drop me an email and I will gladly reply.

I decided early on that I wanted attend London Business School and I'm very happy to be finally here. Before starting my masters, I took a gap year and worked at a fast-growing fashion start-up in Istanbul called Trendyol.com.

I also gained experience at management consulting firms Deloitte and Egon Zehnder International. Here at London Business School, I am part of the executive committee for TEDxLondonBusinessSchool conference 2013.

Nationality: Hong Kong S.A.R.
Studied: Accounting and Finance at the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
Interested in: Private Banking
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Making sure I could get in! For me, it was either London Business School or nothing. My intention was to study at a business school known for strong post-graduate employment prospects for career changers and in a curriculum which strikes a fine balance between application and theory. London Business School was the only school that I felt fully met my criteria and I devoted as much time as I could to make sure I sent out my best possible application.
About me: I was raised in Hong Kong in a traditional Chinese family but studied under a Western educational system. It was not until university that I decided to come to the UK and experience life abroad. Both of my parents were involved in finance so naturally, their influences played a monumental role in my choice of major. Before coming to London Business School, I completed three internships along with a year of experience, all in the financial services industry. Outside of work and school, I am passionate about boxing, tennis and football. Please do not hesitate to drop me an email if there is anything about the programme, the School or London itself that you may have questions about and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.
Studied: Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics, and Economics at the University of Warwick, UK
Interested in: Asset Management
My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Analysing the curriculum of different programmes to make sure the chosen programme would be the best suit to my needs and aspirations. At the same time, I had to decide on what kind of career I wanted to embark on and to discover my passions.
About me: I grew up in Malaysia and studied there until my undergraduate when I decided to take the big step to move to the UK. I have not looked back since. The numerate discipline of my undergraduate really provided me with the technical tools I needed for a quantitative career and this led me to complete a summer internship in investment banking with a South East Asian investment bank. I also completed internships with an accounting firm and a multinational business to help broaden my horizons. I greatly enjoy volunteering, cooking, music, and sports - I often find myself torn between which of them I should do first.
