A global footprint
“It has helped me build and work effectively within a global network. I’ve broadened my understanding of people’s cultures. Not only of people’s different values and beliefs, but their work traits too.”
Confidence in the boardroom
“I joined the School for one main reason - to gain more credibility in the boardroom."
“I’ve worked at Lloyds Bank for 15 years. I started as a cashier, moved up to Senior Manager for the Isle of Man, and then on to my role on the executive committee today. My rise within the company led me to a two-year secondment in Gibraltar, expanding my network at the bank and beyond."
“Starting as a cashier was initially frustrating. I had a desire to move upwards very quickly within the organisation. But it’s been the best thing that could have happened as combined with my EMBA, I now have a comprehensive understanding of the bank’s operations.
“I’m well-versed in leading large teams through cultural and organisational change, and to identifying and creating new opportunities for growth. As Lloyds works its way slowly out of
recession, it has refocused and embraced a huge cultural shift. The industry has seen much change and the bank’s reputation is based on being a well-regulated financial centre.”
Greater cultural understanding
“There is an abundance of LBS mentors, support and advice available on EMBA, both in London and at the end of the phone."
“I’m growing a global network at the School and discovering how to get the most from it. I’m also broadening my understanding of people’s cultures - not only of people’s different values and beliefs, but their work traits too."
“My Global Business Assignment in Dubai was eye opening. It brought to life how the economy was created in the region. The companies we visited were transparent about the challenges they faced. It felt almost surreal when chairman of Dubai International Holding Company, HRH Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum Al Maktoum presented his aspirations for growth – an eye-opening vision of the future."
“The programme helped me hone my softer skills but most importantly, it taught me how to build and work effectively within a network. I know I am leaving this experience a well-rounded manager and, more importantly, a better leader. ”
“Focus on what you really want to learn. Time will fly so embrace the moment.”
