  • Global Nationality: Polish

Education: Bachelors, University of Bath, UK; graduated in 2022

Topic(s) studied: Accounting & Finance

Interested in: Finance, technology

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Sticking to the format required in the application essays while still expressing your personality.

About me: Prior to joining LBS, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting & Finance at the University of Bath. I also did an exchange programme at the University of Richmond, USA, and completed a French business summer school at HEC Montreal, Canada, as part of my studies. During that time, I also completed a year of industrial placement in FS tax at EY London in Canary Wharf.

My experience includes tax compliance, tax audits, international tax, tax advisory and technology projects on improving the efficiency of firms’ internal processes. I also developed my business acumen during various internships/roles including: structured finance at Royal Bank of Scotland; deal advisory at KPMG; technology at Barclays; and management consulting in 180 Degrees Consulting.

During my time at LBS, I aim to leverage my business acumen and previous experience to transition into technology in business. This includes learning more programming languages, improving in conducting analytical analysis and learning the practical applications in true-to-life cases. I plan to engage in initiatives with the following clubs: Blockchain, Finance, Private Equity & Venture Capital and Entrepreneurship.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, doing sports (hiking, cycling, skiing) and exploring new places in London and abroad.

Three topics I can be approached about: Masters in Analytics and Management programme; moving to London; clubs.
