London Business School

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This site seems knowledgeable when it comes to MBA's and business school, and I was just wondering if people have any thoughts on LBS? I'll be applying to MBA programs in about a years time, and im still weighing my options. I have a good shot at top 5 US schools, but LBS interests me as well. I know it's ranked highly on the international scale, but I don't see any direct comparisons. is it help in high esteem? Or is it just good for certain career paths, or what? (I.e: am I best sticking with US schools? FYI I'm canadian, so international fees will happen either way)

Thanks!

Good reputation, but ultimately I think it depends on where you want to work post-MBA. Europe or US?

I'd love the opportunity to choose, which is why I'm getting one. (A definite skill-set, employment within any city, etc). But I do prefer Europe, though a couple major US cities are something I wouldn't pass up either.

You'll be fine at any top school including LBS.

But what do you want to do after? That should help you decide further.

LBS and INSEAD are the only two non-US schools I'd consider...

Depends where you want to work. If your ultimate goal is having the choice between Europe and NA, go to the best school you can. Though Europe isn't exactly teeming with jobs right now... LBS and INSEAD still place but not as well as a few years ago. But then again, that's likely true for US schools as well, especially for finance heavy schools.

I believe you need to speak a second language for INSEAD admissions

LBS masters in finance is really respected. Don't know much about their MBA.

I'm a Canadian that did a Sloan Fellowship at LBS. Great school and great experience. Recruiting is generally Euro focussed except for the BB investment banks. The LBS brand isn't highly weighted in Canada unless you're in the alumni circuit but that's true of any non-Canadian school. INSEAD FWIW likes it applicants to be in the 26-28 year old range and the vast majority typically go into consulting or IBanking. If you're a more experienced applicants who is a non-banker or consultant consider IMD.

My father went here through an executive MBA program with EDS a few years back. He said it was an amazing school and the professors there were all top notch many of them also teach at Wharton and other schools. Its an internationally recognized school and one of the best.
