About me: Katharina was born and raised in the heart of Silicon Valley in Palo Alto, California, which she still calls home today. She holds dual German-American citizenship and has spent a considerable amount of time in both countries, especially having attended high school in Berlin, Germany. In 2015, Kat graduated magna cum laude from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in business administration and a concentration in finance.
Prior to beginning her MBA at London Business School, Kat was a manager in EY's IT M&A advisory practice in New York City. She has more than five years of experience, specialising in end-to-end IT infrastructure for divestitures including due diligence, day 1 design, TSA-exit, and post-day 1 standalone operations. Her career in consulting led her to work on a range of engagements for clients all over the USA.
At LBS, she is an active member of the Women’s Touch Rugby Club, as well as the Consulting and Tech and Media clubs. Outside of school, Kat is an avid traveller and scuba diver; she often loves to combine the two! She is a certified PADI Dive Master and Dive Instructor.
