MBA Open Day
4th December 2021
Thank you for your continued interested in our MBA programme.
We recently hosted our Open Day. We’re excited to offer the recordings of the live sessions, and additional on demand content with some useful insights about the programme, the LBS community and the opportunity to introduce you to some of the people that you will meet along your admissions journey.
The sessions have been specifically selected to ensure you hear first-hand what we feel is most important to you.
Welcome from David Simpson (Recruitment & Admissions Director, MBA and MiF), who introduced the LBS community and gave a glimpse of what you can expect as a student.
David and Charlotte Smith (Senior Global Recruitment Manager) discussed key programme details and their top tips on how to approach your MBA research and application. They also provided useful insights on what makes a good MBA candidate and why you should consider joining London Business School.
David Morris (Head of Technology & Media Careers, Career Services) was joined by Giri Kesavan (MBA2021, Strategy Manager, Global OTT Product Strategy & Transformation @ Sky), who talked about his decision to commit to an MBA through the lens of career transformation. Giri discussed what made him apply, his MBA journey across all elements of the programme, how he worked with the Career Centre during his time with us and what impact his MBA and involvement with LBS have had on his career since graduating.
Who better to talk about our MBA programme, than those who are going through the process? Meet our MBA Student Ambassadors, who shared their experiences of academic, career focused and student life here at LBS: Alara Erisen (MBA2023), Kelly Jeong (MBA2023), Jose Andres Quintero Gil (MBA2023) and Alina Ursachi (MBA2023).
