LBS MBA Introduction

 

Although Brexit have taken off a lot of sheen from UK B-schools, LBS is still among the schools worth taking a shot at if you want to make a career in the coveted finance capital of Europe. The school attracts an annual incoming class of about 400 MBA students from 59 nationalities who are globally minded by nature.

The full-time program can be completed in as short as 15 months, by taking fewer electives, or as long as 21. Most opt for the full 21-month length of the program largely because they like it so much. The program begins in late August each year with orientation and a leadership module running throughout September. This is followed by three study periods: Autumn Term (October to December), Spring Term (January to March), and Summer Term (April to July).

Good Things

  • LBS apparently sends even higher % of students in consulting world than INSEAD and ofcourse Finance as well with impressive $112K and $105K average ┬ásalary figures respectively.
  • Most impressive thing about LBS placements is the high % of students going into Investment banking and Private Equity sectors. Other schools usually clubs corporate finance jobs under the finance tabs to make the sector wise placement statics look impressive.

Things to Consider

  • LBS does not have any student housing options and living in London might cost you a bomb on top of the 88k Euro MBA tuition
  • Apart from consulting Finance and Tech, LBS doesn’t really have much placement in any other sector or Function.
