10 EGMiM Stories

10 years, 10 questions, 10 profiles, every 10th of the month...

The ten-year anniversary of our Executive Global Master's in Management (EGMiM) programme has begun, with our tenth cohort walking through our doors this year. 

To celebrate this 10-year milestone, we are taking time to reflect on the incredible achievements and successes of our EGMiM alumni by releasing 10 individual profiles, with 10 questions, over a 10 month period. Each month you will find a new interview showcasing the diversity of our EGMiM students, their student experience, and how EGMiM has impacted their careers and changed their lives. 

Whilst we celebrate the last decade of EGMiM, we also look to the future of the programme at LSE and how we will continue to grow as a high-achieving, globally recognised institution, providing executive education in the centre of London.
