Re: LBS MiM Class of 2013,INTAKE 2012 CALLING ALL [#permalink] New post 28 Aug 2011, 11:04
Hello,

I have a first class degree in Business and Management from Top-20 UK Universities. Also during my studies I prepared a Business plan, pitched it to Angel Investors, obtained funding, turned a profit, kept records, payed taxes and currently in the process of selling the company. GMAT to be given next month, but I am optimistic to get 700+.

My main interest lies in entrepreneurship and after my masters I want to join a start up company whose idea I believe in.

Do you think MIM will serve well for students interested in entrepreneurship? Is it easy to get in touch with good start up companies after the course?

Also will my entrepreneurship experience be treated as an extracurricular activity by the admission team?

With my profile will I be able to make a competitive application?

Thanx for doing this.

wow.So u gonna get a 1st hand look at things at LBS.do let me know what u find out.especially regarding their career services!

My proflie is pretty ordinary. I am an engineer in biotechnology.graduated in July 2011.did an internship last year and worked on a project during my final year. I will be working with the family business come November.
Right now I have not really shortlisted schools other than LBS.But if i get a good score, I might consider schools in France.

Jai what college did you graduate from? Also the best way to find out whether your degree is recognizable or not is by emailing the university. But most half decent colleges in India are recognizable worldwide.

By the way where is veeru , lol

Haha Veeru lol. are u Indian? u seem well-acquainted with Bollywood.
I must say your profile made for very good reading and you should be gettin an admit at any school of your choice!
I graduated from heritage institute of technology which falls under West Bengal University of Technology. It should be recognized coz our degrees are awarded by the AICTE which awards all technical degrees in the country.

I will call the career service office in my university and find out if heritage institute of technology under West Bengal University of Technology, is recognized or not. If it is recognized in my university, it should be recognized everywhere in the world, as my university is quite rigorous and ranks in top-50 world wide.

Yes I am desi, went to college in UK but born and bread in India.

Will let you know in few hours if your university is recognized.

Jai, I called the career service office and admission office ta my university (University of Edinburgh). Your college is recognized, in fact its name was written on the list of institutions recognized in India.

Also your GPA is solid. Unless you dont tell more details about your extracurricular, I cannot comment on the extra curricular.

Now coming on your original questions


Also what would my job prospects be?

Consultancy, Banking Financial Services, Forum 500 companies. The average salary was around 45 K pounds. You can get a lot of details on LBS website.
Is this degree recognised everywhere in the world?
Not sure if you are serious, but it is NOT only recognized it is the biggest brand name in Business. Ranked better than Harward and Wharton last year I guess.

Considering the downturn in the UK would i be eligible for jobs elsewhere like singapore,australia,US etc?

With LBS on your resume you could be probably recognized on moon and Saturn also. Everwhere in the world except I guess Somalia lol.

good luck.

Hey man thanks a lot.Can i know your name?

Actually,the degree is a MiM,whereas MBA is the flagship programme for LBS.Hence I was a bit doubtful about how recruiters would react to a MiM graduate and not a MBA.
I was also considering applications to French schools as backup, in case LBS did not work out.
However I agree that the brand name of LBS is good enough to hopefully get me a job!
Thanks again.

Agreed that MIM is overshadowed by MBA and I have heard arguments on both sides. Some say it is better to go to the likes of HEC Paris for MIM. Also the MIM at LBS is new.

But LBS, Harward and Wharton are coveted schools in business houses. Also think about the networking opportunity you will get as with name of LBS you can network with MBAs and alumni.

The decision is subjective but I would definitely go to LBS.

My name is Varun Tyagi (brother of langada tyagi lol)

I agree Varun.LBS would be a 1st choice for me too.
So, are you considering applications to other schools?

I am NOT sure if I want to apply in other schools, if I dont get admission at LBS. I have just started looking into B schools, since a few days. Do you suggest any schools in UK?

The other options is to start my own entrepreneurship venture in UK , by applying for entrepreneurship visa at UK. Generally if someone wants to invest 200k GBP in UK they get entrepreneurship visa, and I may be able to convince my family to do so.

What schools are you looking into?

I too started my research a few days back.At the moment I am looking at LBS and HEC.I have to shortlist more schools because my profile isnt very strong.
In the UK, you might want to check out courses at LSE,Warwick and Bath.I have not done so myself, but in India these schools too have a good brand.
Do keep me updated! :)

Sure I will keep you updated, also remember that if you are NOT proficient in french than the networking opportunity at HEC are limited and job opportunities in France itself are limited too, if NOT proficient in french. But overall the school is pretty good.
