Global Business experience

Challenge your assumptions

Olly Nguyen

2017 President of the Student Association at LBS


Defined by crucible moments

“My LBS experience has been defined by some crucible moments which have challenged my assumptions and introduced me to business experiences that I would never have imagined before. For example, during our Global Business Experience in Mumbai, in the space of a few hours, we went from a gilded ballroom in the Taj Hotel, discussing investment approaches and exit opportunities with angel investors, to a ground-level tour of Asia's largest slum Dharavi, where our eyes were opened to the realities at the base of the pyramid. My key takeaway was that it's possible for enterprise to thrive under all manner of circumstances. I feel fortunate to have observed this humbling juxtaposition of diverse lived experiences – something quintessentially LBS.
