My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Studying for the GMAT while being enrolled on a Masters in Finance

About me: After completing a master’s in finance at the Sorbonne University in Paris, I decided to complement it with a master’s in management at LBS.Complementary to the financial and managerial knowledge I have gained, I have developed a comprehensive overview of a company’s development as an intern in a start-up. Then, I experienced more mature markets driven by macroeconomic trends by joining an accounting firm. This has sparked my interest in business finances while confirming my ambition to work in the Investment Banking industry. Given my cultural background and experiences, I have developed a particular passion for cultures, as well as the goal of maximizing my proficiency in the five languages that I am currently familiar with. I understand the value of diverse perspectives, as they offer the most fertile ground for personal development and innovation. Moreover, being a great devotee of the game of chess, I have competed in regional competitions. This intense, strategic game has provided me with vital qualities including flexible thinking and quick decision-making. My experiences have geared me with an open-minded spirit in embracing differences in norms and cultures. I enjoy connecting with others and radiate positivity and enthusiasm!

Three topics I can be approached about: Application process; Life at LBS; Moving to London
