Whilst every student is a representative of the School and you’re more than welcome to get in contact with them, we have a core team of carefully selected student ambassadors currently studying across our portfolio of Early Career Programmes (MiM, Global MiM, MAM and MFA).
As a team of 25 students, representing 17 nationalities and coming from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds, our student ambassadors are a true reflection of our diverse community.
Already four months into their studies, they are perfectly positioned to advise you on the student experience here at LBS, whilst still remembering exactly how they felt when they were in your shoes: submitting applications for business schools, tackling the world of standardised tests and perhaps looking for some guidance during this journey.
Being able to interact with current students is an invaluable resource: not only does it give you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of the LBS community and your programme of interest, but you can then use these takeaways to strengthen your application essays. One of the areas that the Admissions Committee will assess when reviewing your application is the level of research you have undertaken and how informed you are, so having meaningful conversations with our ambassadors is an excellent place to start.
So, here are just a few ways in which you can engage with our student ambassadors:
- Attend an Information Session: these sessions are a great way to find out more about the School and the programmes we have to offer; you will have the opportunity to network with the student ambassadors
- Join us for a Student Perspective: centred on the student experience, you will be able to sit down with a group of ambassadors and ask questions around their application experience, why they chose LBS and even discuss post-programme career goals
- Email/LinkedIn: our ambassadors are more than happy to respond to you virtually (and LinkedIn is a great way to expand your network)
- Coffee chats: let them know if you want to sit down for an informal, one-to-one conversation right here on campus
Our ambassadors are keen to support you and share their experiences – explore their profiles to get started!
