“I knew from 2008 that I wanted to study finance in depth; it was a long-established goal. But I was based in Tokyo back then and resolved only to study at a globally reputable institution. LBS is the best in the world and there wasn’t anywhere like it in Japan. So I waited."
“I have professional experience in corporate turnarounds, M&A, strategy and business development. So why did I choose to study the part-time Masters in Finance (MiF) when I was already a highly experienced manager working in the finance industry and loved my job?"
“I wanted to take a step back and sharpen my technical skills; I also wanted to back up my experience with factual evidence and proven concepts. The finance industry is going through tremendous change, and it felt like the right time to invest in a robust finance degree.”
“The case-based approach to learning at London Business School was the clincher for me. I’d already worked in the finance industry for more than a decade. But MiF isn’t just theoretical. In class, we looked at live practical examples of real companies and analyse them.”
“It’s the interactive nature in class and the calibre of the peer group that takes learning at LBS to the next level. I don’t want to talk about theory that I can read myself. I want to be challenged. It feels like the entire investment bank is sitting with you in the classroom and that’s an amazing opportunity to learn. You learn as much from your classmates as from the faculty."
“Finance is the backbone of any business, company, or country. It touches people’s lives in community, health, education and more. I know that the lessons learned at LBS will last me a lifetime and help me to have some bearing on the world.”
