About me: Iryna holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics and a masters degree in Finance from the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine. She completed an exchange year at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. During her studies, Iryna interned at METRO AG (Dusseldorf, Germany) and Civitta (Kyiv, Ukraine).

Before LBS, she worked at the local Ukrainian investment banking boutique, FinPoint, associated with Rothschild & Co. As an analyst and, later, an associate, Iryna worked on the execution of buy-side and sell-side cross-border M&A deals in the TMT, industrials and pharma sectors. In addition, she was leading the execution of sovereign advisory projects related to state debt matters, including eurobond issuances, credit ratings and investor relations.

Iryna decided to join LBS to leverage the School’s unprecedented international diversity, academic excellence and access to top-notch employers across Europe and globally. Iryna is a fortunate recipient of the LBS Fund Scholarship.

In her spare time, Iryna enjoys travelling and exploring new cultures, filming with drones and playing board games.

Three topics I can be approached about: Investment banking; life at LBS; women in business/finance.
