Thomas Vonwil

  • Programme: MBA
  • Nationality: Swiss

Thomas grew up in Switzerland, where he studied electrical engineering while spending his semester breaks learning Russian in Moscow and St. Petersburg. After graduation, he joined a tech start-up that developed computing platforms for industrial applications. In his first role, he helped the company expand internationally, working in Bangalore, Shanghai and St. Petersburg for three years. Following this, he took charge of the company’s operations department, overseeing the group’s global supply chain.

After spending five years in the tech sector, Thomas decided to pursue an MBA at London Business School. He wants to underpin his on-the-job experience with an academic foundation, focusing on finance, strategy and business analytics. He chose LBS due to its great location in the heart of London, the school’s strong reputation in the area of finance and the amazing people from LBS he has met in the past.

Thomas is on the executive committee of the Germany / Switzerland / Austria Club, and is a volunteer for the LBS Early Career Mentoring Scheme. Thomas enjoys travelling, learning languages and meeting new people with interesting backgrounds.
