A global knowledge base
“I oversee more than 60 people at Bukapalak, so management was a key topic for me. We’re in the middle of digitally transforming our finance operation, which needs to be completed within three months. At LBS, I learnt about managing people with different perspectives and motivations, which is incredibly important when working together on a major project."
“Putting my career on hold and leaving Indonesia to study in London for a year was a relatively easy decision. Aside from gaining an education in finance, I recognised the benefits of living in the world’s leading finance centre."
“I lived in Australia and Singapore when growing up and did my undergraduate degree in Canada, where I also worked for a while. After returning to Indonesia, I ended up moving to Nigeria to work there for a year. These countries all have something in common: the UK. If you look at other major financial centres such as Singapore and Hong Kong, most of their laws are based on the UK system. That’s a big selling point if you graduate from LBS."
“London is the centre of finance, with people who bring specialist skills and expertise that you won’t find in other cities. For example, you have consultants working in corporate restructuring. Being in London opens doors and gives you a broader understanding of how the global finance industry works."
“When not studying, I held executive positions with LBS’s Energy Club and Asia Club. You meet people from other backgrounds, people who had studied or worked in engineering or law, for example. That’s the great thing about LBS – the School attracts very high-profile people from around the world.”
