Volunteering Stories

The impact of our alumni volunteers is invaluable to current students.

Hearing alumni discuss their degree in retrospect, and reflect on its value helps bridge the gap from the academic, theoretical world to the practical and professional world.

Ambika Kapur
MSc Management and Strategy, 2015

I graduated from my MSc in Management and Strategy in 2015, following which I have been volunteering at various alumni events. During my masters, I connected with several management alumni who gave me valuable advice and helped me make the most of my programme, extracurricular activities, as well as tap into a new international job market successfully – all within the space of nine months! As a student, I benefited hugely from engaging with alumni, and this encourages me to give back and share my knowledge with current students now, as an alumna myself.

Since graduating, I have been back at LSE almost every year (often multiple times) to share my experience and insights with current Management and Strategy students, as well as with those from the broader Department of Management. I also had the opportunity to work with LSE to represent and recruit for the two firms I have worked for – PwC and Intapp. This allowed me to tap into the great potential of LSE candidates, which led to me setting up my current company’s first graduate consultant programme and recruiting a student from LSE.

I would encourage all alumni to be an active part of the fantastic community in place at LSE. It’s a great way to give back, engage with students who might be a good fit for our companies and also find out about interesting activities other alumni are up to!
