LBS is one of the Top 3 International MBA programs whose prestige truly rivals that of top US programs. A finance and consulting powerhouse located in one of the world’s most international and dynamic cities, LBS offers a profoundly global MBA experience.
Flexible Program Length
In order to accommodate the differing needs of its students, LBS allows its students to complete the course in 15, 18 or 21 months.
With its global finance center, Big Ben, theater district, proximity to Europe (think lowcost airfares – 10 Euros to Paris!), connection to global companies, world-class museums and galleries, London offers everything you can want from a global metropolis, not least of which is the presence of prestigious multinationals.
The Shadowing Project
A unique opportunity to see the greatest managers at work, by “shadowing” a high-ranking manager on their job for up to a week.
LBS Graduates of 2013 came from 66 different countries, and currently work in over 39 countries worldwide.

Real global work experience will take you a long way, especially if you have worked in more than one country abroad and have global leadership experience.
Be A Leader
LBS is all about creating future global business leaders. While you don’t need to have years of leadership experience, it helps if you can demonstrate some, both within work/college and outside. Even more important is leadership potential. Anything you can do to show that you take initiative, are good at rallying people around a cause, or understand what it means to work in a team and have a keen interest in people, will help your application.
Show The Love
LBS needs to know they’re your #1 choice, and you’re not only applying because you couldn’t get into a top program in the U.S. So do your research and show them that what makes LBS different is what YOU need to succeed in your career. And make sure you also demonstrate that you’re ready to make the big move to London once you’re accepted.
LBS strongly prefers older and more experienced students. The average age of the current class is 29 at matriculation, and the average work experience is near to six years. So lead with your rich business experience, showing what you can bring to the table – and the conversation – once admitted.
