Class of 2018, Singapore
Associate at global strategy consulting firm L.E.K. Consulting
As an Associate with L.E.K. Consulting, Nur Diyanah Binte Kamarudin is involved in data gathering and analysis through primary or secondary research. She credits her experience with the Yale-NUS Common Curriculum for diversifying her knowledge bank, which allowed her to be able to connect more meaningfully with the people she meets. Diyanah hopes that this will give her an edge in the field of consulting, a network-driven industry.
A Philosophy, Politics and Economics major, Diyanah finds that she was challenged to be more multidisciplinary in her thinking to uncover connections between different fields. She intends to apply the same critical thinking skills to her role in consulting, where each assigned case can differ greatly.
“I will definitely miss my professors. They have demanded much of me intellectually but are always kind and interested in my wellbeing outside the classroom setting.”
