About me: Faisal holds a degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance and Entrepreneurship, from Boston University. After graduating, he worked at Search Fund Accelerator, a boutique private equity fund that invests in search funds. In 2017, he transitioned to consulting as he wanted to get greater exposure to strategic decision making across a variety of industries. Faisal moved back to the Middle East to work as a consultant at Bain & Company's Middle East office. Whilst at Bain, he advised high-profile private and public sector clients on strategy, operational improvement, and transformation across multiple sectors including financial services, private equity, energy and consumer products.

Faisal joined LBS to broaden his international exposure, network with the outstanding peer group and leverage the School's position in the heart of London. He has a passion for start-ups and is looking to be more involved in working with or investing in start-ups after completing his MBA.

He holds an Executive Committee position for the LBS Middle East Club and is an active member of the Private Equity & Venture Capital Club. He is a passionate football player and so has joined the Football Club. Faisal is also an avid traveller and is looking to leverage his time at LBS to explore countries he hasn’t visited in Europe (Scandinavia is top of his list!)

Three topics I can be approached about: Consulting; VC; start-ups
