About me: Reuben is from Montréal, Canada and holds degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Physics. Prior to joining the MBA programme at LBS, he was an aerospace engineer specialising in the design and analysis of jet engines for commercial, military and business aircraft.
Reuben chose LBS for its global exposure and diverse international cohort. As an engineer coming from a non-traditional background, Reuben views his MBA studies as pivotal in diversifying his skillset and preparing him for leadership opportunities in business. Through the MBA, Reuben aims to transition into financial services, where he plans to add value by leveraging his prior experience in the aerospace and defence industry.
In his spare time, Reuben enjoys playing guitar and listening to blues and jazz music.
