Hi All,

I am also new to the forum -went through on the thread last night and found bunch of useful informations. thanks a lot for that!

my profile: 5 years Investment Banking experience in Finance and Market Risk, upper second class undergraduate degree (~GPA 3.51), CFA level II candidate, part qualified ACCA accountant. After submitting my CV for initial screening, Peter Johnson encouraged me to apply to the weekend-format MiF starting Sep 2012.
I finalised and submitted my application on the 4th April, and got the confirmation a week later about that my application would be reviewed in Round 4.

I see that the official deadline for the interview decision in R4 is 27th April, so I am getting more and more breathless as the deadline is approaching.. :?

Congratulations for those who have already been admitted!

all the best,

Hi everybody!
On April 12th I received the invitation to the interview! I guess it will not be easy for them to find an alumnus around since I live in C. Asia, but let's see.
I am very excited and look forward to good news from all you members as well.
Ciao


Good luck, Enri. Don't forget to read the information below about other's interview experiences. Also, you should review the electives offered because your interviewer will likely ask you what electives you want to take. Before my interview I assumed this was just to test that you are familiar with the program. Now that I've been accepted and am reading more, however, I bet they ask because it helps them to assign you to a study group for your project.

Anyone has any ideas on the Cambridge MFin program. Sounds very similar to LBS MiF? Would Cambridge name not be better longer term than LBS?


It depends on what you are looking for. I think, Cambridge mfin is more academic programme than LBS MiF. Moreover, it targets market finance more, while LBS gives an option to choose also the corp finance.

Coming back to the contentious topic of visas, is it true that non-EU MiF students will only be able to seek employment for two months after the completion of the course? I am sure admitted students would have done some research; any inputs guys? From what I have learnt if your program length is between 6 and 12 months you can stay in UK for two months after completion of the program. And if program length is more than 12 months then you can stay for four months. So MiF students would have only two months to seek employment. Am I missing something here?

The MiF programme is considered a 12 month programme and therefore, you can stay for upto 4 months after graduation provided you have a valid visa stamp on your passport. Hope this helps!

Thanks, spartan. Though I have to say its a bit strange since the program duration is ten months. Have you already obtained the visa or are in the process of obtaining it?

I am still trying to figure out a way to get a loan. It is very disappointing that the school does not have the HSBC loan scheme available yet. I never thought this could be a problem. Are there other schools facing a similar problem? Don't know what's holding up this process. Are the new work visa / immigration rules causing a problem?

overbored, I have not yet applied for my visa (you must wait until 3 months before the program's start to apply) but have heard from Peter Johnson that the MiF FT program is classified by the UK as a year-long program. I believe this is because London Business School actually confers the degrees each September. While classes are over and there is no requirement to remain in London, the program technically is active for 13 months (from August to the following September).

I hope that helps.

I've offered a place in the MiF program. I am debating whether to go as it means a massive loss in salary and given the issues with UK (and world) economy, esp for people trying to get a job in finance.

So would people who have accepted say what their plans are? Obviously, the chances of working in the UK are close to zero, so you will likely go back home after the program. Is then this program worth it ?

Thx.

I think this depends on your objective. If your goal is a job in London and you don't have another means to qualify for a work visa, then it may not be worth it.

This said, I think you really need to ask your question to your LBS ambassador. Of the students, prospects, and alumni I've met, they all matriculated of accepted and say that the program is worth the effort and that they would do it again. I think though that you need to be prepared to work harder for your job of you don't have an EUor UK work permit.

I myself am able to work only in the US and I'm going.

Congratulations, Mano! I am sending in my confirmation of acceptance along with my commitment fee today.

From where in Sri Lanka are you? One of my good friends in the US is Sinhalese and I have been to Colombo, Kandy, Dambulla, and Bentota (where I experienced the 2004 tsunami :( ) on a visit for her wedding.
