See life differently
"I really wanted to broaden my business toolkit. I was brought up in an entrepreneurial environment but I wanted to develop my analytical skills, get access to business theory and find out how other businesses in similar and different industries have approached their challenges and influenced positive business and social practices."
"The one-week immersive Global Business Experience in Hong Kong was unforgettable. I absolutely fell in love with Asia. The opportunities we had to meet businesses, such as the Mandarin Oriental and Ikea, were phenomenal. We were treated like royalty But I wouldn’t have been able justify the MBA without being awarded a scholarship. It is a substantial financial investment of time and money."
"I was delighted and thrilled to receive the first LBS 30% Club Scholarship, which made my dream to complete an MBA at a top business school achievable. I will always be so grateful to admissions director David Simpson. He has, from the first time I met him, been a huge supporter of my ambitions for my business but also for my charity
Wings of Hope."
"My passion is empowering young people around the world to be future leaders through education and work opportunities. In January 2018, I hosted a TEDX-style talk event for teenagers at Dulwich College, focusing on life skills and resilience, in partnership with LBS.
LBS helped me and the other MBA students working with me to secure world-class speakers, including the former world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua and Professor, Lord Robert Winston. It was called Back to School and was an absolute highlight
of my time at the School."
"After graduating, my relationship with LBS continues and I hope it will remain that way. I am currently working on a research project with a few of the professors with regard to
multinational brand management through an ethical lens. I am also always delighted to be available to future students who have burning questions about the MBA programme and the School in general."
"I would urge anyone thinking of applying to LBS to speak to the alumni first to get a genuine perspective on everything from the curriculum to day-to-day life to what the students are like."
"Preconceptions usually don’t turn out to be true or accurate. For example, I was pleasantly surprised to find LBS MBA students very humble and collaborative. There is a real sense of community and your peers genuinely want to help each other."
"The sheer diversity of the student profile is mind-blowing. You will find students from bank and consultancy backgrounds, but then in my year, there was also a Hollywood talent agent, a US marine and someone from the Israeli secret service. Where on earth do you get that in
one classroom, all working very hard while still looking to having fun?"
