About me: Tarek is a part-time Masters in Finance student at LBS and also a Merit Scholar. He holds a Masters in Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Leeds, UK, and is currently working as a management consultant in London. Due to the demanding analytical capabilities in managing investments, Tarek’s engineering background has provided him with valuable in-sector knowledge as well as analytical skills. Tarek has worked in various capacities, including engineering and market analysis at Rolls-Royce (FTSE 100) and investment analysis as part of a private equity-backed portfolio company.
After reading the LBS Blog, networking with other Student Ambassadors and alumni, and attending a class with one of the cohorts, Tarek felt inspired to navigate the journey towards his passion for public equities through the invaluable learning and networking opportunities at LBS.
Tarek’s other areas of interest include being an active member of the Investment Management Club and ambassador for professionals in STEM looking to explore tangential careers. Tarek has supported over 150 students from disadvantaged schools to increase STEM awareness through the creation of fun STEM-related activities.
