About me: Carles holds a Bachelor in Business Administration degree from ESADE Business School, and began his career at McKinsey & Company. Prior to joining London Business School, he undertook a secondment in the strategy and executive chairman's office at Banco Santander. He decided to join London Business School to deepen his strategy and corporate finance knowledge and learn from others' experiences. Carles chose LBS for its flexibility, the diversity of its student body and faculty and its unrivalled location. During his first year, he tried to deepen his knowledge in strategy and corporate finance by choosing electives in line with this path, although he also chose electives related to topics that might be useful in his future career, such as entrepreneurship and healthcare.

As an amateur triathlete, Carles enjoys swimming, cycling and running in his free time. At LBS, he is on the executive committee of the Running Club, where he has been able to meet people with the same passion. Last year, they organised a week-long trek to Mallorca to prepare for the triathlon season.

Three topics I can be approached about: Sports at LBS; consulting; Spanish community
