Alexander Schartz1.0

Alexander, Germany 

Hi everyone! My name is Alexander, I am 23 years old, from Germany, and I am currently a first year GMiM student. In year 2, I am pursuing the MBA exchange in the United States.

Previously, I studied International Business Administration at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management in Germany and did an exchange at ISM Vilnius in Lithuania.

I am driven by a strong curiosity for consulting and entrepreneurship. I have done internships in various industries, most recently in two consulting firms, an organic food delivery startup, and a German football club. In addition, I have been active in politics in my home region for the past four years as an elected council member. For all these interests, LSE simply offers me the perfect environment.

Outside the classroom, I have joined Castore Consulting as Head of Events and as a Venture Capital Analyst. I am also frequently involved in societies such as LSE Entrepreneurship, the German Society, and the tennis club, which has enabled me to expand my LSE network beyond the cohort.

Having gone through the application process myself, I understand the challenges and concerns. Therefore I am more than willing to share my experiences and support you with any questions you might have.

Ge Xu1.0

Ge, China

Hi everyone! I’m Ge from Dingxi, China. Prior to joining LSE’s Global Master’s in Management (GMiM) programme, I studied International Economics and Trade at the Beijing Foreign Studies University in China with an exchange semester at Lancaster University.

After graduating, I worked in a consultancy and started a non-profit organisation aiming at saving food, and from that, I discovered my strong interest in the management side of businesses. Thus I chose the GMiM programme, which exposes me to a whole new different world from a very different, global and fascinating perspective.

Besides academia, I'm really into photography, films, books and food and pretty much spend my free time cycling through those. Last year, I held my first photography exhibition. And I often share my vlogs on social media sites.

Since I have gone through the master’s application process myself, I understand the challenges and concerns of prospective students. I am more than willing to support you on the way with any questions you might have. Please feel free to contact me!


Jiawei, China

Hello everyone! I am Jiawei from China, a first-year GMiM student at LSE. I have come to the UK to study since the age of 15. Prior to joining LSE, I graduated from the University of Warwick with BSc MORSE.

I had several internships in multiple industries, such as insurance and financial advisory. Having a strong interest in finding effective solutions for business problems, I wish to embark on a career in consulting.

LSE to me is not just a high-quality educational institution, but a vibrant, diverse platform on which meeting great people and establishing long-lasting friendships can become really easy and natural. Since the start of the GMiM programme just 3 months ago, I have had plenty of opportunities to network and have fun with seniors and peers.

As an international student, I am fully aware of the challenges that a prospective student may face when applying for Masters and coming to a new, big city in a foreign country. I am always glad to help throughout the transition process.

Outside of the classroom, I love swimming, horse riding and discovering great cafes and restaurants in London. Feel free to contact me!

Master's in Management

Beya, Tunisia 

Hi everyone! My name is Beya, I'm from Tunisia and I have been studying in Paris for the past four years. I currently am in a Double Degree programme: MSc General Engineering at CentraleSupélec Paris and MiM at LSE.

I chose to pursue the MiM at LSE because it allows me to complement my engineering background with sound management knowledge and strong soft skills, through the courses, but also from a real life social perspective through interactions with students from different backgrounds, either in my cohort or in my student unions. LSE is bound to be a life-changing experience!

Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions you may have about the application process, the MiM, LSE or life in London as a newly-arrived international student. I look forward to hearing from you!


Manmeet, India

Hello everyone! My name is Manmeet and I am from Chandigarh, India. Before joining the MSc in Management program at LSE, I did my bachelors in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Panjab University, Chandigarh.

I chose the MiM program at LSE because it would help me understand the basics of management and how businesses run. This programme will equip me with a lot of skills including marketing, accounting, finance and strategy. Along with this, LSE has great diverse community and you get to meet a lot of new people.

Please feel free to reach out to me in case you have any questions about the MiM program, LSE or life in London as an international student!

MSc Human Resources and Organisations

Before moving to London, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto in Canada, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in Economics and Management.

Influenced by my international background, my professional interests lie in the area of diversity and inclusion, and helping organisations make the best use of their most valuable resource – it’s people.

Simran Katoch1.

Simran, India

Hi, I'm Simran, an applied psychology undergraduate pursuing the OB Stream on the HRO programme. My previous work experience has been with the Indian government and my own start-up endeavours, which encouraged me to pursue this branch of psychology. 

Born and raised in Delhi, India; metropolitan cities have always been familiar. I enjoy the hustle-bustle, the diversity and the option to try different kinds of food. When I am not buried in an interesting neuropsychology article or TedTalk, you'll find me playing basketball, listening to music or simply savouring the rare London sun.

Being a part of LSE is a one-of-a-kind experience that results in immense personal and professional growth. I was fortunate to have found a course that tapped into my interest and is helping me reach my career goals.

Don't be afraid to reach out for LSE related advice or good food recommendations in London!

Hei Yuet Ma1

Colette, Hong Kong

Hi! I am Colette, a student from MSc Human Resources and Organisations, specialising in International Employment Relations (IER/CIPD).

I completed my bachelor's degree at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology with a double major in Information Systems and Management. Upon graduation, I worked as a HR intern for a year to gain some hands-on experiences.

I must admit that there are some challenges in changing the field of study and adopting to a new education system, but LSE is a place where your efforts will always pay off.

During my free time, I really enjoy discovering new restaurants with my classmates. Given the convenient location of LSE, there are always surprises around the corners, especially during festive seasons.

Pari Rajendran

Pari, India

I’m Pari and I'm pursuing the HRM stream at LSE. It has been an enriching journey of learning a new culture and way of life in the UK.

Being born and bred in Chennai, India gave me a great foundation before moving to the University of Kent where I completed a BSc (Hons) in Management.

This is my fourth year in the UK as an international student, which enables me to give an experienced view. Being around people motivates me and has led me to choose a career in HR.

Whilst doing my undergraduate programme, I was able to effectively play the role of student ambassador due to great mentorship and the satisfaction I get from connecting with people from different backgrounds. I could relate to the questions raised by campus tours since I had been through the same journey as an applicant interacting with school students.

Feel free to reach out - I’ll try and support you in any way I can!.

Having gone through the same process, I understand how overwhelming it can be finding the right path. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any question or just want to have a conversation about life in London, experience at LSE and first time living away from home.

Jonah, Germany

While working on research projects during my undergraduate studies in Business Administration at Kühne Logistics University, I realised my interest in research in the organisational behaviour domain.

During my undergraduate studies, I also interned in the consulting industry and spent five months at The Ohio State University, USA.

Now, I am happy to further follow my research interests through pursuing the MSc Human Resources and Organisations (Organisational Behaviour) in the Department of Management at the LSE.

My experience has been extraordinary - mainly because the LSE and London have so much to offer, from top notch (public) lectures and research to student societies and social events.

Before moving to London and starting my studies, however, I had many open questions and did not fully know what amazing opportunities lie ahead.

Feel free to get in touch with me via email or on LinkedIn and let me know what open questions you have about academic and student life at LSE and London!

MSc Management of Information Systems & Digital Innovation

Bredeca Anthony1.0

Bredeca, Malaysia

Hello! I'm Bredeca, born and raised in Malaysia. I'm studying Management of Information Systems & Digital Innovation (MISDI) here at LSE. Prior to LSE, I did my undergraduate in Information Systems at a small-town college in the United States.

My undergraduate degree was more on the technical side but my passion leaned more towards the management side of the tech industry.

Apart from academia, I love to walk in quiet neighbourhoods around the city, visit cafes and find the best coffee in London.

MSc Marketing

Theodoros Mavropoulos1.0

Theo, Greece

Hello people, I'm Theo, a 21-year-old Greek MSc in Marketing student at LSE! Prior to coming to LSE, I studied BSc in Marketing at the University of Kent.

It is therefore fair to assume that I enjoy marketing, however, the MSc degree offers a more consumer-centric approach to marketing, an aspect that I was really eager to explore beforehand, along with a data-analytics focus that provides us with a holistic view of modern marketing.

Aside from university, I also love discussing with like-minded people, watching and reviewing movies, as well as reading business and behavioural science books (If you are interested in hidden movie or book gems - make sure you reach out on LinkedIn).

Please reach out to me with any questions about the MSc Marketing course, Management Department, LSE or London life in general, I'd be more than happy to help!
