Your current job (in which sector and function)

Engagement Manager, McKinsey & Company (Management Consulting Firm)

What were your personal highlights of your internships?

LUMS has a great reputation in the UK and beyond, and this reputation helped me to find internships and an excellent graduate job. During the course of my degree I completed a number of valuable internships, at McKinsey & Company, Inc., Daimler AG and at Nestlé Deutschland AG.

What makes the IPBS Programme special?

What I liked most about doing the BBA International Business Management was the friendships that developed over time, and I appreciated the high level of integration between Lancaster and ESB Reutlingen, Germany, which saved me from a lot of stress.

Your message to current and prospective students.

LUMS simply is a fantastic place to study. You are taught by professors who are experts in their fields and your colleagues come from all over the world. The campus as well as the city offers a great student life with societies, sports clubs and places to party.
