About me: Natalia joined LBS from a management consulting background in the Middle East. After having graduated from Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation in Moscow, she joined Oliver Wyman, a global consulting firm, in its Moscow office. She then transferred to Dubai to gain international exposure and experience of working in multicultural teams. During her four years abroad, she worked on projects in financial services and the public sector in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
Natalia was admitted to the world’s top four MBA programmes and chose LBS for the diversity of its students' profiles and nationalities, its vibrant location in the heart of London and its great flexibility. A Forte Fellow, Natalia is heavily involved in extracurricular activities at the School, such as the Mental Health Awareness Initiative, Women in Business Club and Entrepreneurship Club. Natalia enjoys experiencing things - she is an avid traveller, snowboarder and occasional parachute jumper. She is passionate about neuroscience and psychology and is interested in leveraging technology to help people improve their mental health.
