Meet London Business School’s Class of 2019

Amy Dobbin  

London Business School  

Describe yourself in 15 words or less: An Aussie lawyer turned political adviser who is passionate about technology changing the world at scale.

Hometown: Sydney, NSW, Australia

Fun Fact About Yourself: I am a sports enthusiast with a love for ocean swimming and the beach, developed from my time as a volunteer lifesaver at Bondi Beach.

Undergraduate School and Major: University of Sydney, Law and Politics

Employers and Job Titles Since Graduation:

Senior Adviser to the Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull

Lawyer, Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Allens Linklaters

Policy Adviser, Child Protection, UNICEF Ghana

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Advising the Australian Prime Minister on technology, media and telecommunications policies, and shaping the messages and policies that won the Australian Federal election in 2016.  These policies have improved connectivity for millions of people, including the $49 billion National Broadband Network, the largest infrastructure project in Australia’s history, which will connect 8 million homes and businesses by 2020.

Looking back on your experience, what one piece of advice would you give to future business school applicants? Do not be afraid to sell yourself, particularly if you are from a non-traditional business background. Contextualise your achievements in your essays to help the admissions committee understand who you are and why you are unique.

What was the key factor that led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA and why was it so important to you? Diversity of classmates. LBS is an international programme with a truly global outlook.  I am excited by the prospect of joining this global community, with over 90% of the class made up of international students – and building friendships and networks from people all around the world.

What would success look like to you after your first year of business school? A solid grounding in new business and financial skills, and a global network of classmates and industry contacts to support this.
