Real Humans of London Business School’s MBA Class of 2021
For this edition of Real Humans: MBA Students, we catch up with the new class at London Business School (LBS). When you hear “London,” architectural icons like the Tower Bridge, the London Eye, Big Ben or Globe Theater may spring to mind. London, the capital of England and the United Kingdom, is also a global financial and tech hub. Indeed, the city is only second to San Francisco in its concentration of fintech companies. Not surprisingly, many members of the incoming Class of 2021 arrived at LBS with backgrounds in finance, tech and consulting. While some of these candidates are looking to further their impact in a related field with added business acumen, others plan to use their LBS MBA to pivot into entirely new careers – from investment banking to retail and luxury management, for instance.
London School of Business attracts high-performing students who value a global perspective, flexible and highly-ranked academics, and a desire to live and work in one of the world’s most dynamic business hubs. For the Class of 2021, they land at an exciting and uncertain time on the region’s business landscape. Read on for their stories.
