Katarina Towianska

  • Degree Programme: Masters in Financial Analysis
  • Global Nationality: Polish/Swedish

Education: Bachelors, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK; graduated in 2022

Topic(s) studied: Management & Finance

Interested in: Private equity, consulting

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Tackling job applications and business schools.

About me: I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Management from LSE. During my undergraduate studies, I developed an interest in consulting as well as private equity. Wanting to get industry exposure, I worked part time for Boston Consulting Group and Greencap Partners (IB). I continued my work for the latter, having found renewable energies M&As a very good ground for a sharp learning curve.

I applied for the Masters in Financial Analysis programme wanting to develop a well-rounded financial and qualitative skillset. Given that all my work experience amounts to less than two years, I felt like the course was the perfect option for me to hone in on my skills both on campus as well as at work.

What I am hoping to get out of this academic year is an ability to break into private markets, ideally within renewables.

Aside from academics, I thoroughly enjoy daily physical activity. I was treasurer for both the lacrosse and ski societies at LSE. Also, I am an art buff and look for various art exhibitions across London.

Three topics I can be approached about: Getting into consulting or private equity; anything about London; Snow Club.
