Global Master's in Management

Chenchen 600x600

Chenchen, China

Hi everyone! My name is Chenchen, and I’m currently a 1st-year GMiM student.    

Prior to joining LSE, I undergrad in Business Administration from ESSEC Business School.    

I was born in Beijing, China and left my home country at the age of 6 to grow up abroad. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to visit 5 continents with living, studying and working experiences on 4 of them.    

I have developed a deep interest in consulting through my academic and professional curriculum. Thus, I opted to join the GMiM programme to sharpen my understanding of general management.

What I particularly appreciate at LSE is the synergy between different departments. As a Social Science University, LSE represents a very diverse body of students and faculty. Learning alongside students from other areas of expertise and level of studies (it’s not rare to sit next to PhD students!) constantly encourages you to get challenged and give the best of yourself. This accumulation of social science knowledge makes studying at LSE truly unique!  

Applying for graduate studies can be very stressful. Given the number of competing options, things can get easily confused. Feel free to reach out for any queries. I’ll always be glad to help!

I am Laiba Maryam – a second-year GMiM student at the LSE from Lahore, Pakistan. Before coming to LSE, I graduated from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Pakistan in Accounting and Finance.

I came to LSE to explore multifaceted business disciplines and understand the complexity and interdependence of operations of a firm in a truly globalized world. Even during an exceptional year amidst Covid chaos, LSE had been successful in maintaining its quality of education and a sense of belonging to the LSE community. LSE offers a multicultural environment, where meaningful debates and discussions are encouraged, and students are empowered to make an impact.

Having gone through the same process, I understand how challenging and confusing it could be to find the right path for you. I am always here to share my experiences and help you transform your learning experience.

Hello, I am Kyu Weon Beom and am currently studying MSc Economics & Management. I am a South Korean, with quite an international background whereby I grew up in Indonesia, the UAE, and the UK.

Thanks to my international background, I value diversity more than anything and hence guided my application to LSE. I also did my undergraduate studies at the LSE, studying Mathematics and Economics.

Yes, I lost a substantial amount of hair and am in the course of going completely bald. Other than that, my experience at LSE has been incredible! I am a football lover. I used to play more back then, but I suffered from an ACL injury that stopped me from playing competitive games. For those who are more familiar with European football, I am a diehard Dortmund fan and if you want to have a tactical discussion on football, I am happy to do so. Just make sure you are not a Shalke fan!

I like to think I am a people person, though some may disagree, and I cannot wait to discover other lovely individuals

HRO Maria-Alexandra Popescu 600x600px

Alexandra, Romania

Hi guys! I am Alexandra from Romania. I came to London 10 years ago and have lived here ever since. I studied Anthropology and Sociology for my undergraduate. I have also worked in Sales and Marketing during my 3-year course.

I am now at LSE studying a MSc in Human Resources and Organisations and I am on the HRM stream. The reason I chose HR is because I became interested in the interplay of intrigued human and organizational psychology and how it can be applied to empower employers to achieve greater organizational success. I often listen to podcasts such as Worklife with Adam Grant and Harvard Business Review’s Women at work to try to absorb any information about people at work, their motivation and leadership. My interest in the field began with a striking curiosity in Human Resources which developed into a career aspiration.

Outside of my studies, I enjoy any outdoor activities. I am also a fitness lover and enjoy spending my time in the gym. I am very excited to be a part of this diverse and vibrant community at LSE and I am here to help guide you on your own journey to join us.

HRO Melissa Ngige 600x600px

Melissa, Kenya

My name is Melissa Ngige also known as 'Shiko', a 23-year-old from Nairobi, Kenya. I enjoy listening to music, exploring new places, and sampling new foods from different parts of the globe.

Last year, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cultural Studies and Social Anthropology from the University of Kent. I was intrigued with the diverse topics on how culture can shape facets of who you are in society. This not only catalysed my passion for people but furthermore encouraged me to apply for an MSc in Human Resource Management at the London School of Economics. Moreover, I have had the opportunity to engage with a number of diverse internships in the Marketing, Real-estate and Hospitality sectors.

After I graduated last year, I had a chance to intern in the HR and Strategy spheres which deepened my understanding of a number of things. For instance, the importance of a vibrant employee and employer relationships within the company and how that can impact performance. Additionally, the need for employees to buy into the company strategy and to know their roles in achieving the company vision. Lastly, the importance of teamwork as it fosters efficiency between employees and enhances relationships within the organisation.

HRO Namrata Eyunni 600x600px

Namrata, India

Hi everyone!

I’m Namrata Eyunni from India and I’m studying the Human Resources and Organisations Masters with a specialisation in Organisational Behaviour. I pursued an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Political science. I interned with Org Psych/HR teams and worked for Deloitte Consulting’s Resource Management team for 3 years. Going forward, I would like to work in the space of Human Capital Consulting or Talent Engagement whilst pursuing my passion in the social sector.

I'm a vegan, tea enthusiast (have recently developed a liking for coffee too) and a hopeful empath. I enjoy all things quaint- London is great for little cafes, bars and libraries. Singing is a stress buster as long as I'm the only one in the room. Cricket and Tennis are two sports I enjoy watching and hope to catch some games while in London! I've been actively involved with voluntary work in the education sector back in India and it's a space that excites me. It's my first time away from home - if you're in the same boat, feel free to reach out for tips.

Looking forward to connecting with all of you!

HRO Priyankha Elango 600x600px

Priyankha, India

Hello! I am Priyanka Elango and I come from India. I recently graduated with a degree in Psychology and Sociology. When I'm not studying or working, you'll find me cooking or grabbing a bite at an Instagrammable café. I also love traveling and cannot wait to explore all that London has to offer.

Since childhood, I have envisioned myself being associated with a people-centric and people-oriented discipline. Work is an integral part of the human lifeworld and that being the very place of exploitation for some was the first epiphany of many, for my interest in Human Resource Management. Therefore, I felt the need to gain an understanding of the management side of people and organizations. My future goal is to work upon organizational policies for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion. I truly believe the HRO course will aid in bridging the gap between my intent and impact.

Being part of the vibrant international student community at LSE is a one-of-a-kind experience of meeting the world in one place. I am looking forward to interacting with prospective students and sharing my experiences with and passion for the course!

MS Srideep Mitra 600x600px

Srideep, India

Hey everyone! I am Srideep Mitra from Kolkata, India. I completed my BSc(Hons) Economics, in 2021, from the Calcutta University.

I have always been inquisitive about the role of strategy in management. In my opinion, strategic management equips a decision-maker with processes and procedures that facilitate anticipation of changes and implementation of frameworks that either mitigate the adverse impact from the change or enable new innovations that optimise returns from it. I want to study this subject to reach at least the same level of intuitiveness and panoramic view of the field as many leading global managers of the world have, so that I can use that knowledge as a base to develop new ideas for my business acumen and be the change maker I always aimed to be.

LSE's diverse platform is something that deserves a special mention. The exposure and backing that LSE provides is priceless. Moreover, we have access to plenty of societies that help us to connect with like-minded individuals from around the globe. LSE's stimulating learning experience is something that you cannot fail to include in your list.

I am more than willing to share my experiences and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Besides academia, I'm really into fitness, films and food and pretty much spend my free time cycling through those (in no particular order). As an established London student veteran, I'm well aware of how daunting it is settling into a new city, making new friends and keeping up with the fast paced life in London, all while trying to stay on top of studies. This fuelled my motivation to be part of the student ambassador program at LSE, to provide a helping hand to incoming students, ensuring a seamless and smooth transition into university life and making sure they take advantage of everything London has to offer.

As my entry into marketing was through a 6-month internship at The LEGO Group prior to starting my postgraduate degree, I'm driven to highlight the wide variety of pathways into the field as both a subject and profession.

Please reach out to me with any questions at all about the MSc Marketing course, Management Department, LSE or London life in general, I'd be more than happy to help!

Nishtha, India

Hi everyone! I'm Nishtha from India and I'm studying Marketing at the LSE. I did my Bachelor's in Media and Communication, following which I worked with a marketing agency before coming to LSE. I've been interested in Marketing for as long as I can remember and doing a specialized master's in the subject only felt like the natural next step in my career. It's been a great journey so far and I'm looking forward to what's next in store for me!

Outside of the classroom, I love dancing, cooking (which really helps as a student who lives alone), traveling, and meeting new people. During my undergraduate studies, I represented India in the World Hip Hop Dance Championship and volunteered in Vietnam as an exchange student. These experiences taught me the importance of stepping out of my comfort zone in a global setting and that's why I love being part of an institution that's as diverse as LSE.
