  • Global Nationality: Pakistani

Education: BSc, Bilkent University Turkey; graduated in 2019

Interested in: Investment banking, asset management

My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Reaching out to people from different universities to learn about their experiences

About me: I've been lucky enough to have lived and studied in six different countries: Pakistan, Bahrain, UAE, Turkey, Poland and the US. Prior to joining LBS, I was doing my undergrad at Bilkent University in Turkey, where I studied BSc Management and majored in finance. Over the course of the last four years, I’ve completed internships in investment banking, corporate finance, equity research and healthcare. This made me realise that investment banking is where my competitive advantage lies. I decided to join LBS among the many other offers I secured because of its truly global outlook, amazing Career Centre, and top-class rankings. At LBS, I’m part of the Finance Club, Investment Management Club and Squash Club. I’m also currently interning at Blue Knot Partners, a London-based private equity firm. When I’m not studying or working, you would normally find me looking for the best street food around London, or socialising at The Windsor Castle aka LBS pub. I look forward to connecting with all of you and would be glad to answer any questions you have!

Three topics I can be approached about: Moving to London; application process; investment banking
