I always thought LBS was more of a finance school.
But, my friend kept telling me to apply to LBS because it also has good consulting placement.
Is that true?

I haven't found too much info about LBS....
Thanks in advance for your input.

If you look at the employment report, you will see that McKinsey hires heavily at the school. So maybe that's where your friend got the idea?

LBS is a top school and therefore has good placemet in any sector. I don't buy this Internet piece of wisdom, that INSEAD is a consulting school, LBS - finance and IMD - industry.

Good 30-35% of the students join consultancy firms post their MBA from LBS. I agree with the previous poster. LBS is a great school and there is no point in generalizing it as just a FINANCE school.
