  • Programme: Masters in Management
  • Nationality: Russian

Studied: BSc in Economics, University College London, UK

Interested in: Consulting, investment management, entrepreneurship

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Balancing the time between GMAT preparation, my undergraduate degree and summer internship applications

About me: I was born in Moscow, the beautiful capital of Russia, but have lived in the UK for the past 10 years. From the age of 11 I attended a boarding school in a small town called Oakham, where I was immersed into the British culture. Seven years later, I moved to London and complemented my education with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from University College London. During my undergraduate studies I represented the UCL Travel Society as Head of Marketing and was an active member of the Swimming Club. Additionally, my passion for technology led my friend and I to develop a challenge themed social network application for the iOS platform, which was a relative success when it entered AppStore’s top 300 social networks list in the UK and Canada. I chose to apply to LBS because of its diverse community, its incredible alumni network and the necessary practical business knowledge that the MiM programme provides, which should help me achieve my goal of becoming a strategy consultant. Now, I am an active member of the salsa, swimming and consulting clubs at LBS and I look forward to discovering what exciting opportunities lie ahead of me at Europe’s number one business school!
