My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: To determine the right way to portray myself in the application.

About me: I was born in Russia and over the years have travelled extensively across the globe. This has helped me discover new cultures and become more open-minded. I pursued a Bachelor of Science double degree programme at the Higher School of Economics and University of London, majoring in Economics and Finance.

During my degree, I completed several international internships in the financial, startup and corporate sectors and I see my future career development in management consulting. I highly value the practical approach to business education and the international exposure at LBS. It provides a great foundation for my career objectives in a joyful and highly engaging atmosphere. Teamwork, leadership, time management, broad managerial knowledge and lots of valuable networking opportunities are what immediately come to my mind while thinking about LBS.

As a member of the Women in Business, Consulting and Snow Clubs, I’ve found that like-minded people from across the LBS programmes provide vast professional support and encourage investing time in hobbies, adding to the amazing experience.

I love drawing, skiing, playing tennis and much more, so I am always open to new activities.

Three topics I can be approached about: Moving to London; application tips and programme structure; Masters in Management experience.
