Hanah is an MAM2020 student and is currently undertaking the optional fourth term.

Education: Bachelors, IE University, Spain; graduated in 2019

Topic(s) studied: Business Administration and International Relations

Interested in: Fintech, technology, finance, startups

My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Self-reflection when writing applications, and figuring out which degree and school combination would be the best fit for me and future career plans

About me: I was born and raised in Brazil and completed my undergraduate degree in Business Administration and International Relations at IE University in Madrid, Spain, with a semester abroad at McGill in Montreal, Canada. During my undergrad and masters studies, I had the chance to complete internships in different industries – including technology, finance and retail – as well as different countries around Europe, such as Portugal and Switzerland.

My diverse personal, academic and professional background pushed me to apply for LBS, as I was looking to join a school where I would be able to interact with people from all backgrounds. I decided to join the Masters in Analytics and Management as I was looking to gain more technical expertise in understanding and telling stories from data.

The skills that I was able to develop during my year at LBS were key to landing me an internship in fintech – an industry that I am interested in because of its disruptive and innovative aspect.

Apart from academics and professional experiences, I love discovering new things – be it places, cuisines or fun facts – making me an avid traveller and Wikipedia user.

My electives: Negotiation & Bargaining; Entrepreneurship through Acquisition; Financial Statement Analysis

Why I chose to do the fourth term: I decided to pursue a fourth term as it was a great way for me to focus on the development of skills that were not core to my degree programme.
