My biggest challenge when I applied to business school was: I applied in business school it was: Time constraints to accumulate all the necessary elements: GMAT, tests, references.

About me: I grew up in Frankfurt, Germany, before moving across Europe during my Bachelor of Management at ESCP. During my first and second year in London and Paris respectively, I fell in love with cities and their vibrant luxury industry, which motivated me to gain first-hand experience in this sector. After an internship at Gucci (Kering) in finance and Yves Saint Laurent Beauté (L’Oréal) in marketing, I joined Bain & Company within their luxury practice team in Milan as an associate consultant intern, where I have developed transversal skills and acquired a broader vision of the sector while interacting and working with leading clients. At LBS, I continue to develop a strong anchoring in luxury for the school by co-organizing the Paris Trek of the Retail & Luxury Club, a unique experience where LBS students can come into contact with the best players in the industry. and discover French luxury.

Besides career-related topics, I am deeply passionate about diversity and inclusion and am proud to be a member and vice president of marketing of the Out in Business club at LBS. Before that, I co-founded and chaired the Berlin branch of the LGBTQ + club at ESCP.

Three subjects on which I can be approached: Out in Business and diversity issues; how to break into luxury; consulting vs industry and how LBS can help you in your choice
