My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Believing in myself and finding the time.

About me: Born and raised in Nigeria, I didn’t have the opportunity to explore diversity locally. However, every summer whilst I was growing up, my family would explore a different culture, city or town in the world, therefore my love for international business and diversity was cultivated from a very young age.

I finished university with a first class degree in Accounting having completed multiple internships in various sectors, companies and industries, including KPMG and PwC. During my undergraduate studies, I was always very dedicated in pushing for change and was the vice-president of the Student Council and on the executive committees of many other clubs.

I decided to pursue a masters because I didn’t feel like I knew enough about how business worked on a global scale. That isn’t something you get from a classroom, so I needed to attend a school where I could learn directly from people all over the world who were also interested in business – that’s how I knew LBS was the right school for me.

So far, I have been enlightened in and out of the classroom by teachers, friends and clubs like Women in Business, Black in Business, Consulting Club and Foodie Club.

Three topics I can be approached about: Application process; visa and scholarships; clubs.
