In December last year, the MBA Recruitment & Admissions Team had the chance to welcome 60 MBA2018 admitted candidates to London for our first Admits Event for Round 1 candidates. The day was jam packed with presentations starting with a welcome from our Student Association president who highlighted different aspects of student life and activities to get involved with once joining the LBS community. Erica Hensens, Programme Director of the MBA, walked our admitted candidates through the MBA experience. Following Erica, one of our world-class faculty members, Alex Edmans, presented an engaging and interactive lecture focusing on corporate responsibility.
Career Centre then provided an overview of their support and offerings during the MBA programme with a panel of current students from the MBA2016 and MBA2017 classes. To wrap up the sessions, a group of alumni and student ambassadors offered their own perspective of the LBS experience with guest speaker David Saenz, co-founder of the successful Uncover App.
At the end of the day, we celebrated with a dinner cruise on the Thames to view the incredible light displays for the holiday season. We look forward to continuing to develop the class in our upcoming admissions rounds!
