Learn more about us

The Inside the London MiM blog is written by a cross section of the London Business School MiM community, students as well as Recruitment and Admissions staff. Here is who we are:

Brenden

Brenden 100by100

Nationality: Dutch

Topic studied and University: Earth Science & Economics, VU University Amsterdam

Favourite place in London: Hampstead and Camden Market

If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… Rajendra Pachauri and Albert Einstein for the conversations, plenty of friends for the fun and Coldplay for the music.

Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Check what you have actually written down in the essays. And again. And again.

About me: Born and raised in the Netherlands I spent most of my days in and around the small but charming Amsterdam. The times I don’t spend riding my bicycle, swimming in the lakes, playing football, having fun with friends or actually studying I love to travel (5 continents so far) and gliding my skis down the Alps. After my (already!) fantastic time at London Business School I hope to step into the dynamic world of conventional and renewable energy.

Carlos

Carlos 100by100

Nationality: Spanish

Topic studied and University: Business Management and Law, University of Valencia.

Favourite place in London: Any park around London.

If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… Jose María Aznar (former Spanish Prime Minister) and Rafa Nadal.

Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Start as soon as possible and do not underestimate the time and effort that is needed to prepare a compelling application.

About me: I was born and raised in Valencia (Spain). After graduating and having some experience in a law firm, I decided I wanted to internationalize my career and focus on the business side of my studies. I was delighted to know about the inaugural class of the Masters in Management since it seemed a perfect fit for me. And both the program and the school have exceeded my expectations so far! I love all kind of sports, especially football and tennis. And I am also and enthusiast chess player!

Flora

Flora 100x100

Nationality: Hong Kong

Topic studied and University: Natural Sciences, University of Cambridge

Favourite place in London: Cupcakes counter at Selfridges Food Hall
If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… Jane Austen, Jennifer Aniston and Obama
Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Think about your own reasons for joining the school
About me: Having spent five years in other parts of the UK, coming to London is quite a big change, from dealing with real estate agents to figuring my way around the tube. As my first year here, I am excited by the diversity in the backgrounds of Londoners, as well as leisure activities such as musicals and quirky art exhibitions. In my free time, I try to brush up on my French, do voluntary work and take some dance courses.

Jeffrey

Jeffrey 100x100


Nationality:
British/Canadian/Hong Kong
Topic studied and University: Economics, University of Chicago
Favourite place in London: Leicester Square with its cinemas and theatres, film fest and mini amusement park at Christmas, and of course Chinatown nearby :)
If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… the entire cast of the incredibly good TV series ‘The West Wing’ and the White House staff they portray. Barack Obama! Although I have met him in Chicago already …
Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Download and read the essay topics long before the deadline, so you can let them sink in, think about them, and take your time to write.
About me: Travelling is my biggest hobby. I have travelled to nearly 40 countries and studied in the above four, and the more I see and experience, the more I want to keep travelling. There is so much to be learnt simply by walking around different areas, and observing how people work, play, and interact. That was also my rationale for coming to London Business School – to get the European perspective that I lacked. I also like photography – but don’t you think sometimes it takes you away from observing right there, and learning right then?

Michael

Michael 100x100

Nationality: German
Topic studied and University: International Business, EBS London
Favourite place in London: Primrose Hill, Little Venice, Battersea Park, Hammersmith…
If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… the guys from Monty Python!
Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: To thine own self be true
About me: Born and raised in Germany, I’ve spent the greatest part of my adult life (if you can call it that) either in the UK or Europe/South America meeting people, learning languages and travelling. I’ve spent some time in investment banking before coming to London Business School, and am now looking for the next challenge!

Ola

Ola 100by100

Nationality: Norwegian

Topic studied and University: Simon Fraser University, Economics.

Favourite place in London: Imperial War Museum

If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… British comedian and actor Ricky Gervais.

Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Put a lot of effort into the essay part of the application, it is your chance to reveal who you really are.

About me: I was born and raised in Oslo, Norway. I have served some years in The Royal Norwegian Navy as well as lived four years in Vancouver, Canada where I pursued my undergraduate degree. Being Norwegian, my    favourite hobby is skiing or any other activity related to Mountaineering. However, I also love living in London and exploring the cultural and culinary scenes of the greatest city in the world.

Parul

Parul 100by100


Nationality:
Indian
Topic studied and University: Electrical & Electronics Engineering, National Institute of Technology, India
Favourite place in London: Taunton Centre! Canary Wharf actually, the place is literally surrounded by all the dream companies.
If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… Axl Rose
Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Ask yourself, what makes you interesting? Then tell your story to the world.
About me: When I was 4, I looked like Donald Duck. When I was 18, I turned into a wannabe rock star who had a more successful (read existent) pop career (Sigh)!  A music maniac, travel enthusiast and diversity freak – I am known for my hearty laugh and backpack! Born and brought up in one of the most multicultural and multilingual countries, India, I have an inherent appreciation for cultural diversity. For the last three summers, I have been backpacking all over Europe on my own, learning new languages and making great friends along the way.

Saira

Saira 100by100

Nationality: British
Topic studied and University: International Relations and History, LSE

Favourite place in London: South Bank, it has the most interesting cafes, museums, bars and random things.

If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… George Adamson (Google him) and Shahrukh Khan. And Obama, but I guess he’ll be busy whatever date I give him…Either way, I bet this combination would make for amazing conversation.

Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Nothing to lose and everything to gain, so just try.

About me: Born and raised in beautiful Yorkshire, but originally from Kerala in India…I advise everyone to go there at least once in their life if they can! Coming to LBS has been one of the most nerve-wracking, exciting times of my life but it has been great. I love travelling (Machu Picchu this summer was a jaw-dropping experience), running (recently completed a half marathon – will only be running for the bus from now on) and voluntary work (which has introduced me to a lot of things I wouldn’t otherwise have seen). My family and friends are awesome. Oh, and…I love living in London!

Shraddha

Nationality: Belgian

Topic studied and University: Psychology, UCL

Favourite place in London: Notting Hill – colourful houses, great restaurants/bars; Portobello Market, celebrity spotting, hidden away gems – a guaranteed good time.

If I could invite anyone to my dinner party, it would be… Warren Buffet and Mark Zuckerberg…great personalities that would definitely make a very exciting, interesting dinner party!

Best piece of advice I received when applying to business school: Yes, you are making the right decision – go for it!

About me: I am originally Indian but I grew up in Antwerp (Belgium) around a lot of chocolates. I enjoy exploring London, travelling at any opportunity I get, and being around my friends and family. I like dancing, especially to Indian music. I used to play tennis as a kid and am looking start again. Coming to LBS has been a rollercoaster ride, but a really great one!
