Education: BSc Political Sciences/Masters in Economic Law, Sciences Po Paris, France; graduated in 2020
Topic(s) studied: International relations, political sciences and business law
Interested in: Tech; consulting; investment banking
My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Firstly, finding the right business school that would provide me with international exposure through the student pool and also through professional opportunities; and secondly building a strong application while coming from a non-quantitative, very specific degree.
About me: I was born and raised in the south of France and grew up there until I was 17; I left after my Baccalaureate to pursue my studies at Sciences Po Paris. After being exposed to a broad range of topics, from political sciences to neuroeconomics, I chose to pursue a year abroad at the University of Toronto to explore courses such as entrepreneurship, international law and political sciences in Africa.
Coming back from this rewarding experience, I chose to pursue law with a Masters in Economic Law, allowing myself to discover the business world from a legal perspective. After completing a year of internships in international legal firms and being introduced to the professional realities of investment banks and consulting firms in particular, I decided to re-orientate my academic path towards a business school. As I wanted to start off my career outside France without necessarily leaving Europe, LBS was the perfect place to be. My experience so far has been exceptional, especially the context we evolve in: I am really thankful to go through this particular context with students from all over the world, sharing the same curiosity and passion for the world we live in. I am very happy to share my experience regarding the application process, life at LBS and diversity at LBS as a Black student and member of the Black in Business Club.
