Sally Radwan

Not many native Egyptian women play basketball competitively, recruit and interview for LBS admissions, and work in strategy and marketing for Fortune 500 companies. Sally Radwan, however, does all three…and more.

Sally comes from a diverse international background. Having grown up in Egypt, she has lived and worked in 5 countries (including Austria, Germany, and the United States) and is fluent in four languages (Arabic, English, German and French). Since getting her MBA from London Business School, Sally has held a number of corporate positions in Fortune 500 technology companies. She is also currently finishing an MSc in Biomedical Engineering at City University London, and she plans to combine her business experience with her background in science and engineering to create sustainable business solutions for the world’s most pressing healthcare problems.

Sally is a bit of an idealist, you see. But as one of our more experienced application mentors, Sally also knows precisely what it takes to get clients into top programs, especially across the overlapping areas of international development, engineering, healthcare, and business.

What's your most embarrassing moment from school?

Calling one of my teachers at home by mistake and talking to her for several minutes as if she was my classmate. Whooops!

What do you like most about admissions consulting?

Listening to people's stories and helping some truly remarkable individuals fulfill their potential. It's an incredibly gratifying experience.

Why did you go for an MBA?

Two reasons: First, coming from an engineering background, I was curious as to how "business" decisions got made in a company, how it's run etc. Secondly, I wanted to add a "prestigious" qualification to my CV. LBS definitely gave me both and more. And it made me realize that the best thing about the MBA/B-school experience is the transformation you undergo as a person and the network and life-time relationships you build. These are so much more valuable than learning about business.
