“Some people go to business school to pivot into a different role or sector, but I didn’t want to take my foot off the pedal at my position. I didn’t want to take time out from my career and then have to re-enter the workplace."
“Friday and Saturday classes provided the solution. The timetable also attracted students based in other European cities, flying in from Switzerland, Germany, Russia. London is cosmopolitan and finance as an industry is immensely varied, but adding that additional layer of different nationalities – that’s why you go to a top business school, you want that diversity. That’s a great strength of LBS."
“The part-time programme can be very intensive when you’ve had a long work week, but it’s really well put together. You get guys flying in from Switzerland, Germany, Russia – a broad array of nationalities, which is of great benefit."
“I was also the only part-time MiF student taking the Distressed Investing elective and a block week in Managing Corporate Turnarounds in Dubai. I met and engaged with students from schools such as Columbia and HK School of Management, as well as LBS. It was case-study based and highly immersive, with a lot of visiting industry practitioners. This added a strong networking component to the class, and made for a really enjoyable week."
“So as tough as it’s been, the part-time programme has been immensely rewarding. It’s a great opportunity to work and study in parallel. I’ve been able to tailor the programme to my needs – I’ll graduate with a concentration in corporate finance.”
