Welcome to our 2019 EMBA Global (A&E) class

Last week we welcomed 74 new students to the School - the EMBA Global America and Europe (A&E) class of 2019! 

Their orientation began with an alumni panel discussion and an opening dinner at the iconic City Hall, where they were also joined by our colleagues from Columbia Business School. The week was packed with activities and events such as our annual admin fair and our closing event, a boat party on the Thames.

Class members have a wide range of interests and skills and the group includes two professional basketball players, a former professional skier, two Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners, a power boater, catamaran sailor and a licensed pilot. Musicians include a violinist, two drummers, a pianist, a cellist and a guitarist.

The EMBA Global A&E programme is built on a powerful partnership between London Business School and Columbia Business School. The class will convene again in New York in June and July before returning to LBS in August for a joint class week with EMBA Global Asia class of 2019.
