Tech Movers and Shakers: The MBA Class of 2016
The London Entrepreneurship Review in conversation with the personalities of the LBS MBA Class of 2016 technology and entrepreneurship community. A special tribute to the Class of 2017, the incoming Class of 2018 and all future LBS students.
Celebrations, Graudations and a Tribute
Graduation season has descended upon London Business School and the campus is awash in celebrations. In this special edition of the London Entrepreneurship Review, we raise a glass to the MBA Class of 2016 and bring you the stories behind the personalities of the tech(nology) and entrepreneurial community.
These are the movers and shakers of the LBS community - they have shaped the student experience for hundreds of fellow students, they have been at the forefront of student-led events, led your club's, organised career and social treks and mentored dozens through their personal and professional endeavours.
When we say ‘tech’ - we’ve cast a wide net. The point wasn't to focus in on one particular career path, club or interest group - but to showcase the myriad of opportunities you can pursue at London Business School under the ever evolving banner of ‘tech’.
We asked each contributor to explain what ‘tech’ means to them. We want to know what makes them tick, how did they navigate the job market, what they thought of the MBA programme and what they are doing next.
Above all else, we set out to find those people who typify the London Business School experience. Our aim was to create a showpiece for all future generations of LBS MBA student. We sat down with ten of the MBA programme's best and brightest in an intimate one-on-one conversation - these are their stories.
