#198 Inside the London Business School MBA & Honing your Story with Chris Tran, LBS MBA ’22

“Always think about how you could position yourself, not just for the MBA, but coming out of the MBA as well. It’s never too early to think about it. I think self-positioning starts with your career interests and how you differentiate yourself from the rest… that will probably take a few times to revise depending on who you ask… but every time you change it you learn quite a bit. If you have the right positioning from the beginning, it clears up a lot of things later on.

Chris Tran, London Business School (LBS) MBA ’22, shares lessons learned from applying to and attending LBS, as well as how he landed his first post-MBA consulting gig in London.
