“The diversity and collaborative atmosphere at LBS foster open-minded thinking.”
“Gaining global experience was crucial for success at an international corporation like Goldman Sachs.”
“In the first week of studying my Masters in Management (MiM) at London Business School (LBS), Savio Kwan, LBS alumnus and President and COO of Alibaba from 2001 to 2005 told me, ‘It’s crucial to do two things: be smart and always work as part of a team.’ Savio’s words stuck with me. I spent a year at LBS living by his motto, and as a result, secured full-time employment at my target company, Goldman Sachs."
“I had interned at Deloitte, Ardian and Credit Suisse, but felt that studying a MiM at LBS would give me the edge as a candidate by blending theory and practice. I now apply my accrued experiences as an Associate for BC Partners."
“LBS also gave me insights on how to conduct business overseas. The international experience on the Global Immersion Field Trip to Shanghai was my standout programme highlight. The trip boils down to LBS’s core values. It’s an adventure bursting with international learning as well as real-world business insights. It strengthened my LBS network, because it gave me the opportunity to learn and do business with peers.”
“Faculty incorporate recent topics into their lectures – even if it’s short notice in the media. It shows that what we learn is connected to the real world of business. Take our Financial Accounting class; we discussed how the recent VW emissions scandal impacted the financial position of the firm."
“London is also the perfect location for business study: it is one of the leading, if not the leading financial centre of the world. Of course, it adds to the diversity too – it’s a great hub and a vibrant city."
“The same diversity extends to classmates. The diversity of my cohort helped me answer crucial questions. How do banks differ in their culture? And how do specific teams operate within global organisations? Class diversity permeated my study group. In team assignments, it’s easy to think from just one individual perspective, but group discussions always broaden your horizons. I know now that there’s more than one way to solve any business problem.”
