What makes London such a great place to earn an MBA degree? London is a leading city and central hub for most, if not all, industries! In addition, it is incredibly multi-cultural – no matter where you come from, you can easily make this place your home.

London Business School is one of the most culturally and professionally diverse MBA programs in the world. How do you see these global perspectives enhancing the value of your business education over the next two years? Through conversations with fellow classmates, I have already witnessed how my perspective, both within and outside of the business context, will continually be enriched. Having lived in London my entire life, the privilege of learning within such a diverse student body will enlighten my approach to tackling business problems throughout the program and beyond.

Aside from your classmates and location, what was the key part of London Business School’s MBA programming that led you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you? The emphasis that London Business School places on international experience is what attracted me to their MBA program. Their Global Business Experience, for instance, highlights their commitment to elevating global thinking, which will undoubtedly position me for success in the global career I wish to build for myself.

What course, club or activity excites you the most at London Business School? I am most excited about the Luxury Strategy and Brand Management electives. Not only do they align with my post-MBA ambitions, but I have heard great things from alumni and current students alike and look forward to experiencing these electives first-hand.

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Although it is difficult for me to identify a specific accomplishment, I can say that what I am most proud of is that I have built a strong career in marketing analysis while balancing my career as a professional singer and in doing so I have gained invaluable experiences within both professions!

What is one thing you have recently read, watched, or listened to that you would highly recommend to prospective MBAs? Why?  London Business School hosts online MBA Overview sessions which I found to be incredibly helpful both when learning more about the school and also during my application process – I attended more than one session! They were also a great opportunity to ask any questions regarding the admissions process and the program as a whole.

What led you to pursue an MBA at this point and what do you hope to do after graduation? I have always envisioned myself completing a postgraduate degree and I also wanted to combine my analytical and strategic skillset with my passion for creativity. I felt that the MBA would be the perfect way in which to explore relevant options, broaden my network within new spaces, and position myself for success within a yet-to-be-defined hybrid role. Post-graduation, I hope to combine my love of music, creativity, and branding within the realms of strategy or business development. However, I aim to remain open-minded throughout the program as I am aware my MBA experience may inspire me to explore other avenues.

What advice would you give to help potential applicants gain admission into London Business School’s MBA program? Learn as much as you can about the school, the program and the culture. LinkedIn is an extremely useful tool and I would advise potential applicants to use it to its fullest – connect with people and ask questions! Moreover, when applying, be sure to present your full authentic self. Your experiences, whether big or small, all play a part in what makes you unique.
