About me: Rakhee was raised in Chicago, Illinois, where she attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and studied finance and technology management. At university, she led a team at EntreCorps, a student-run consulting club that helped grow and scale small businesses.
Rakhee joined London Business School following a career in product strategy. She was the first member of a newly formed product growth team at XPO Logistics, and helped build and launch a mobile app for truck drivers to book loads and minimise empty truck miles.
Rakhee chose to attend London Business School to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. She was impressed with the diverse and global environment at London Business School and is excited to be part of a community that is constantly challenging traditional ways of doing business. She hopes to pursue a career in technology strategy where she can build products from the ground up. Beyond the classroom, Rakhee is a member of the Executive Committee for the Tech and Media Club and will be hosting the Product@LBS conference this year.
