My career goal is to become a successful executive, leading diverse teams and doing cross-border business. Going on an exchange to London complemented my MBA experience and my network in Asia. At LBS, I met many interesting students, including business owners from Africa and the Middle East.

The diversity of people I worked with both inside and outside the classroom empowered me to grow, both as a person and a leader. The experience I gained from this MBA program has been most helpful in my current role as a corporate strategist for a large technology company.
