Weekends in London

The past few weekends in London have been interesting.

This past weekend the LBS International office hosted a London sightseeing event on a red double decker bus touring around to see the major sights: London bridge, tower bridge, London eye, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Parliament etc. The tour ended at the British Museum where we had lunch and a few of us went to check out the exhibits which include the famous Rosetta stone.

On Sunday, a few of the exchange students also went to see a Fulham football match at Craven College. We were sitting in the “Home/Neutral” section and it was a great match.

The weekend previous was the big Private Equity conference held by LBS on Friday with speakers from major firms like KKR, TPG and The Carlyle Group.

Another exchange student and I also ventured into Oxford to the Said Business School to attend the Enterprise Africa conference with various speakers on topics such as Private Equity, China and India's relationship with Africa etc. Speakers were from Goldman Sachs, Bank Of Maurituis, MTN and other top banks and industry representatives.

While there, we also had the opportunity to check out Christ Church, the place where the main hall of Hogwarts was filmed for Harry Potter.
