His experience includes working on consulting projects in industries such as telecom, healthcare, the public sector, aviation and real estate. On these projects, Imad worked on areas like project management, strategy development, risk analysis, operating model design, and strategy implementation plans.

Before joining Strategy&, Imad graduated with a degree in Economics from the American University of Beirut. While studying his undergraduate degree, Imad also completed an exchange semester at the London School of Economics and an exchange semester at SciencesPo.

During his MBA at LBS, Imad aims to combine his business acumen and his previous consulting experience to transition into a strategy role in a global firm. Imad wishes to work on long-term projects and oversee projects from strategy to execution. He is an active member of several clubs such as the Consulting Club, Impact Consulting Club, Social Impact Club and Snow Club. In his free time, Imad enjoys learning new languages and meeting people from all over the world.

Three topics I can be approached about: Coming to LBS from the Middle East; switching careers from consulting pre-MBA to a new industry post-MBA; strategy jobs post-MBA
