My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Making my application stand out

About me: Before coming to London three years ago, I lived in Warsaw, where I was born and raised. During my time in London, I completed a business degree at King's College Business School. While at King's, I was a committee member of the business, finance and culture-focused student societies. Beyond that, I also made use of the many professional opportunities which became available throughout my undergraduate journey, by interning at EY, Bloomberg and Boston Consulting Group. Given all of those experiences, I have become increasingly interested in pursuing a career in consulting while at the same time further developing my financial expertise. At LBS, besides achieving those two educational and professional goals, I'm also keen to make an impact by contributing to the student community as an Executive Committee member of the Women in Business club. Outside of university life, I enjoy yoga, windsurfing and skiing. If I weren't studying finance, I would most likely become a traveller.
