Incoming student Wynne Lewis to write about her Copenhagen MBA year for the Financial Times
Wynne Lewis will shortly be trading The Big Apple for the green city of Copenhagen.
A Copenhagen MBA student has yet again been selected to join the Financial Times MBA blog team. This time, American Wynne Lewis made the cut and will be writing about the ups and downs of her MBA year alongside MBA candidates representing business schools such as Cambridge, Harvard and IE.
Wynne Lewis is currently a Product Marketing Manager in mobile advertisement and lives in New York. She will shortly trade her Brooklyn neighbourhood for life in the green city of Copenhagen, and is excited about her forthcoming assignment.
“I enjoy reading the Financial Times to garner an international perspective from across the pond and feel very fortunate to get to get to voice my CBS experience alongside other students attending similar MBA programmes across Europe.”
Wynne was attracted to the Copenhagen MBA for its strong focus on Responsible Management and the promise of a global classroom, with MBA candidates stemming from all corners of the globe. She is passionate about the pillars underlining the Copenhagen MBA.
“As an American, I believe that now more than ever, it is crucial to understand the nuances and differences between business practices around the world. Underneath a deeper understanding of international business it is then essential to then have a solid foundation in Responsible Management. Without Responsible Management, you have an underemployed, underpaid working class and an environment that cannot be sustained. Both are bad for society and bad for business!”
Post-MBA, she is toying with the idea of starting her own venture but much like her professional journey to date, she knows the path will be a discovery process that unfolds itself along the way. For now, she hopes to tell the story of what really powers her passion for Responsible Management on the far-reaching global business platform that is the Financial Times.
“On the blog, I hope to share how my understanding of best business practices on a global scale will undoubtably grow and change during my time at CBS. Given my background, I will be focusing content around lessons in Marketing and Leadership, but also have a feeling that I will find inspiration in the subjects I do not naturally gravitate towards. For example, I have only the most basic coding skills, but I believe discussions around engineering will provide key insights into the global business practices of the future.”
Wynne is excited about her upcoming move to Copenhagen and looks forward to living in Denmark.
“Who wouldn't want to go to school in the happiest country in the world?”
