Carolina Duran Silva,
Carolina Duran Silva is a Mexican student, studying full time for an MBA. Working alongside such a multi-cultural group of classmates has helped her to develop her soft skills, building her confidence to take on working in the diverse team of multinational company Nestle. Carolina, is still working on her dissertation, but has already started work as Finance Controller for Nestle's Nespresso brand in Mexico. Before arriving at LSBF, she had 5 years industry experience, but studying as part of our diverse student body has helped her to develop her cultural awareness, team player and negotiating skills in an international context. “I chose LSBF because it was a multi-cultural school in London which also gave me the opportunity to be part of GGSB, and they offered tutoring for the CFA first level. My classmates were a multicultural group, who helped me to develop my soft skills, and many have become lasting friends. “My new role required me to interact in a multicultural environment and travel widely. Studying at LSBF has given me the perfect grounding for contributing to my multinational team, as I now have the team player and negotiating skills required to work confidently in this international environment.” What's your advice for new students? Enjoy every minute of you studies. Wait for the best opportunity for you and your career – don't rush into the first job that comes your way – be patient.
