Aaron Anand, (Indonesia)
Hi everyone, I am Aaron, I am 21 years old, and I am currently a first-year GMiM student. In year 2, I am pursuing the CEMS exchange programme.I completed my bachelor's in London as well, studying Applied Medical Sciences at UCL. I am driven by a strong curiosity for consulting and entrepreneurship. My passion for these developed during high school when I started up an e-commerce business and enjoyed the journey of growing that store tenfold. Just address why such a drastic shift from my bachelor's to my master's. Well, the simple answer is I could not see myself working in a lab for the rest of my life. However, I would love to leverage my previous degree and tap into the pharmaceutical industry In addition to the generic consulting and financial services. For these interests, LSE is the perfect fit for me. Outside the classroom, I'm really into trying fashion (streetwear), basketball, and music - playing instruments and listening (more like critiquing albums) and pretty much spending my free time cycling through those. Having personally navigated the journey of applying for a master's I am here to be your guide and assist you with queries or doubts. Please don't hesitate to reach out!
Vanessa Mueller, (Germany)
Hi everyone! My name is Vanessa, and I am currently pursuing the Global Master's in Management at LSE. In year 2, I will spend a term abroad through the CEMS program. Previously, I completed my undergraduate degree in Business Administration at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and Università Bocconi in Milan. I have nearly two years of professional experience in strategy consulting and have done meaningful work at pro-bono student consultancies, including LSE’s very own Castore Consulting. I am eager to continue working in this industry, as the challenge of ever-changing scopes and industries fascinates me. Outside of the classroom, I have found great purpose in driving initiatives addressing social justice and sustainability, with a focus on gender and racial equality. I also love to sing, dance, and write songs! Having a diverse background spanning four countries (Malaysia, Germany, Singapore, and the US), I understand the unique perspective of international students. So feel free to reach out if you have any questions! We all know choosing a Master's degree is a big decision, so we are here to help in any way we can.

Venus Cheng, (Hong Kong)
Greetings, everyone! I'm Venus, currently pursuing an MSc in Human Resources and Organisations (HRM Stream) at LSE. Before moving to London for my studies, I worked two years as an L&D associate. That was my first job out of undergrad, and it provided me with firsthand experience of witnessing the dynamic between organizations and people, which cemented my passion for the field. I applied for this program in the hope of exploring the multi-faceted dimensions of this field, and I can confidently say it's one of the best decisions I've made so far! The programme is extremely well-structured and offer plenty of real-world case study to help you put theories into practice. When I'm not buried in readings, you might find me in one of the music practice rooms, drumming away, or experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen. If the weather is nice, I also enjoy strolling around my neighborhood and exploring new shops and streets. And, as you can guess, I'm also a huge music lover! I'm open to all genres and always on the lookout for live music events in London.

With an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Delhi University, I'm currently immersed in the captivating world of the MSc Human Resources and Organisations program at LSE, focusing on International Employment Relations/CIPD.

Samuel Zuyderhoff, (France)
Hello everyone, my name is Samuel. I am 20 years old and originally from France, Bordeaux. That said, I have lived the first few years of my life in Canada and the UK for the past six years. I actually did my undergraduate studies here at the LSE, studying Management, so I do have quite a lot of experience with the school and how it works! Academically, I would say that I am interested in Management (obviously after doing it for 3+ years!), but more specifically in the international context of Management, marketing, and operational strategy. Beyond academia, I really enjoy sports like tennis, which I played for seven years, and football for 14 years. I also recently started rugby at West London Squad. I will be delighted to leverage my personal experience at the LSE to help you navigate all the opportunities, challenges, and moments of doubt you may face so you can make the most of your time here! Thank you, and see you soon!

Carmen Ng, (Malaysia)
Hi, I am Carmen from Malaysia. I completed my Bachelor in Business Management at Universiti Putra Malaysia. Before MISDI, I had a diverse professional background encompassing marketing roles in Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Banking, and Fintech. These experiences equipped me with a multifaceted understanding of the corporate landscape as well as gained invaluable insights into leveraging digital technologies for organisational success. This propelled me to secure the Chevening Scholarship towards pursuing an MSc in Management Information Systems and Digital Innovation at LSE, aiming to bridge the gap between business strategy and cutting-edge technology implementation. Beyond academics and work, I'm also an avid collector of perfumes and an ardent fitness enthusiast ( I was a part-time gym instructor before studying at LSE). So hit me up if you want some tips on how to stay fit while living the busy university life ) As a Student Ambassador of the LSE Management Department, I am excited to connect and collaborate! Drop me a message if you have any questions on the MISDI course, the application process, or anything about life in London. I look forward to sharing my LSE experiences and insights for the MISDI course.
Ambroise Jeanty, (France)
Hey everyone! My name is Ambroise. I come from France. I began my academic journey there with an undergraduate degree in Private Law. After that, I pursued an LLM in International Commercial Law at Cardiff University. Following my academic experience in the UK, I returned to France to pursue a Master's in Law and Business Ethics at CY Cergy Paris University. In my quest to broaden my horizons, I am currently enrolled in the MiM programme at LSE. It is allowing me to acquire new skills, and this programme offers a foundation in the fundamentals of managing people and organisations. Moreover, studying at LSE is a great way to meet other international students with different backgrounds. During my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, watching historical documentaries, and visiting museums. Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions about the MiM programme, LSE or life in London as an international student. I look forward to hearing from you!
Matt Ng, (Philippines)
Hey everyone! My name is Matt, and I'm from the Philippines. While I was born in the Philippines, I grew up all over the place, having lived in the Philippines, Japan, Singapore, China, and now the UK. I am currently pursuing a MiM at the LSE. I did my undergraduate at Imperial College London in Biochemistry, so, I like to think I know London quite well. I would say my background is quite unusual, having pivoted out of STEM to go into management. I did a 1-year-long placement at AstraZeneca where I ironically realized I want to pursue a career in management. I believe having a STEM background complements a career in business, so for those currently in STEM and looking to pursue an MiM, feel free to reach out! On a more personal note, I enjoy a wide range of hobbies (when I have the time). I enjoy rock climbing, playing golf, and weightlifting, but I'm not particularly good at them. I also love Rubik's cubes and can solve one in under 30 seconds. I love meeting new people and learning about different life experiences. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about what it's like to be a student at the LSE.
Lena Garcia, (Belgium and Spain)
Hi Everyone! My name is Lena and I am a masters in management student. I'm Belgian and Spanish, but have lived in the UK for most of my life. Before joining the MiM programme I completed my undergraduate degree in business and management at the University of Sussex. I chose the MiM programme to further my knowledge on the challenges involved in managing organisations and people in today’s business environment. So far I have really enjoyed the variety of teaching, social events and people I have met. During my free time I enjoy playing tennis, running, and exploring new places around London. As a student ambassador I’m excited to share my experience and insights with prospective students. So please do reach out via LinkedIn or email if you have any questions about the social or academic experience at LSE.

After graduating, I started working in one of the leading textile firms in Pakistan as a Digital Marketing Executive. I’ve always been a little intrigued by marketing, but it was this job that made me realize my true calling. Apart from studies, I’m really into photography, reading, watching K-dramas, and exploring the London food-scape. I’m fully aware of how overwhelming the whole application process can be, having gone through the same challenges. I would just like to remind you that you are not alone, even though it might feel that way initially. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any queries, and I’ll be glad to help.
