Interested in: Investment Banking, consulting, impact investing

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Choosing the school and programme that would enable me to pursue my career objectives.

About me: I grew up in France and studied at several boarding schools to follow my passion for football, playing in U15 and U17 teams at National French level. I then moved to the UK for my undergraduate degree, where I studied Economics at Loughborough University. During my studies, I completed an internship in Luxembourg with Deloitte in fund auditing and another in Belgium with Nike in supply chain.

My interest in finance, combined with my willingness to build on my broad skillset and gain specialist knowledge, pushed me to enroll in the Masters in Financial Analysis programme. I was particularly attracted to LBS for its world-leading reputation, with an incredibly diverse cohort, strong alumni network and an applied academic approach. My time at LBS has so far been extremely intense and exciting, both on the academic and social sides. LBS is an extremely energetic and collaborative community, where you have excellent discussion and networking opportunities with peers, lecturers and alumni.

Outside of work and study, I have joined the Social Impact Club and love doing sports like football, boxing and the gym.

Three topics I can be approached about: Moving to London; Social Impact Club; Football Club.
