About me: Veronika was born in Russia and grew up in Germany. She moved to the UK to finish her secondary school education and went on to study at Warwick Business School. After graduating in 2010, Veronika joined the Royal Bank of Scotland and worked there in various FX and fixed income sales roles covering EM and DM clients. She invests her own capital into startups. Veronika is a CFA and CIPM charterholder.

She chose LBS for its international student cohort and close connection to potential future employers. During her MBA she wants to explore several career paths including the fintech and venture capital paths. Eventually she is planning to start her own business.

Veronika is a fortunate recipient of a Forte Foundation scholarship. In addition to the student ambassador role, Veronika is on the Tech & Media Club Partnerships Executive Committee and a team lead within the One 23 investment club run by MBA2023 students. Outside of the classroom, Veronika has her hands full with two young children. In London she volunteers for the Age UK charity. In her free time, she travels to destinations where she can scuba dive (advanced PADI licence) or enjoy alpine skiing.

Three topics I can be approached about: Studying with children and a partner; scholarships; Tech & Media Club
