Education: MPharm, University College London; graduated in 2020

My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Balancing studying for the GMAT while completing my undergraduate degree

About me: Prior to joining London Business School (LBS), I studied pharmacy at University College London. During this degree, I undertook a sandwich year consisting of a 12-month placement at GlaxoSmithKline and a 3-month placement at Procter & Gamble. My experiences cemented my ambition to study at LBS, to build a comprehensive understanding of international business principles and to help me launch my career as a future leader in the pharmaceutical or consumer goods industries. Outside the classroom, there are several clubs to get involved with which allow you to pursue your extracurricular interests while growing your network across the exceptional LBS community. I am an active member of the Women in Business Club and the Retail & Luxury Goods Club, and have been appointed as the communications and marketing officer for the latter. I feel so honoured to be a part of such a diverse, international and outstanding community, and I can’t wait for the rest of my journey at the school.

Three topics I can be approached about: Transitioning to LBS from a non-business major; London life; FMCG and pharma industries
