My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Balancing GMAT preparations with my studies and work, and generating ideas for the application essays

About me: While I completed my undergraduate studies in my home country, Austria, I always knew that I wanted to pursue an international career. The fact that this career would be in finance was, however, not that clear to me from the beginning. My undergraduate studies were very focused on data science and I only got exposed to finance at a late stage. Yet, I was always passionate about numbers, investing and creating value, which was confirmed by the work experience I gained in a small family office and being part of a student-led finance club. Therefore, pursuing a Masters degree in finance came as a natural next step for me and I was soon sure that LBS would be the right place for this. LBS stands out with its perfect location and practical approach but especially with its multicultural and diverse community, thereby contributing to not only one’s professional growth and achievements but also one’s personal development. Other than being passionate about finance, I am also a big fan of sports, health and fitness, and music and love connecting with new people, so please do not hesitate to reach out. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences of LBS with you!

Three topics I can be approached about: Tips on the application process; summer internships; life at LBS and student clubs
