Preparing for a global career
“Our class is incredibly diverse and we all share the mindset of wanting to work internationally, particularly in the East.”
A global learning curve
“Working in Asia is an ambition I’ve had for a long time. It was the catalyst for my decision to apply to London Business School’s Global MiM, a two-year double-degree programme delivered in London through LBS and Shanghai through the Fudan School of Management."
“Relocating to Asia was an incredible personal and academic experience. I was excited about everything from the food and scaling mountains with friends, to engaging with Fudan’s student community. In London, I was Corporate Vice President of the China Business Club where I had the opportunity to learn from people who knew China and get an insight into the region before I embarked on my adventure East."
“The first year of the Global MiM gave me a solid grounding in strategic analysis, financial accounting and taught me how to utilise tools such as the value curve – comparing companies in the same industry to see what makes them competitive. Being part of a culturally diverse class had huge benefits and created an exciting dynamic."
“I also gained deep insight into the global economy and current macroeconomic dynamics, cross-cultural business communication and global business management."
“Chris Voss, Emeritus Professor of Management Science and Operations, and guest speaker Pierre-Yves Gerbeau were particularly influential in helping me and my peers understand the complexities of managing in a globally competitive business world.”
"Studying in Shanghai was a dream come true. I got to interact with Asian companies, immerse myself in a very different business culture and develop lasting networks across the region. It certainly helped with developing my Mandarin."
“The second year of the GMiM provides new business insights and the opportunity to explore in more detail some of the subjects from year one. After interning at HSBC in London, I was able to move on and interact with Asian companies. I immersed myself in a different business culture and developed networks across the region."
“My class was incredibly diverse, but we all shared the mindset of wanting to work internationally, particularly in the East. Everyone was interested in discussing ways to develop partnerships with Chinese companies or student associations that would benefit us all. The faculty really encouraged us to network with one another and as a result, we found opportunities to work together after graduating.”
