Hello All:

I am in the process of researching the London Business School and had an opportunity to attend the Info Session in London. As of now it would be in a daily log format but I would be rearranging it to a better format soon.

School Website
http://www.london.edu/programmes/mba.html

School Clubs Website

Complete Listing of Clubs
https://clubs.london.edu/club_signup
Something that may interest prospective students...All these clubs have First Year Student Reps.

Comparison between Wharton and LBS
http://poetsandquants.com/2010/07/21/london-business-school-vs-the-wharton-school/

Program Duration
One can complete his MBA in 15 months, 18 months or 21 months. The Duration depends on how do you want to allocate your time on Studies/Internships/Social activities etc.I felt that 18 months was the most popular option.

Placement and Internship Process overview
http://www.london.edu/assets/documents/theschool/London_Business_School_Guide_to_Recruitment_201011.pdf

How much does the LBS MBA Cost?
The fee for MBA2013 is £49,900. The figure covers the full 15-21 months of tuition and course materials.
Talking to students at LBS I felt that a single guy would spend around £1800 to live a decent life and if you make international trips as part of your MBA that could come close to £3000. I think a pessimistic estimate could be close to £90,000

Should I refer to school as LBS or London Business School? My research tells me that you should stick with London Business School. A forum post which agrees with me.

Thanks a lot for this! Really helpful! I have a question regarding the GPA score - last year, I took LBS off my list because I didn't meet the GPA requirements - I thought I specifically saw a page on their website stating that one needed a minimum GPA score of 3. I don't see that bit of information anywhere on their website now. Did anyone else see that? Or was I seeing things? I hope not because I've been telling everyone that I'm not going to apply because of that damn GPA requirement!!!! :x

Seems that LBS does not compromise with the number of years of experience.
