Hey just got an acceptance from LBS MiM 2013. Anyone else got in yet?

Anyone aiming to apply in the 2nd round?
Does anyone know someone who has passed out or is currently enrolled? 1st hand info should be invaluable!


Jigjagjai just a piece of advice. They really seem to value students who are well-rounded and have an international mind-set so really emphasize that in your application and interview. They also want you to be honest, so in the interview don't hesitate about sharing experiences of any challenges you've ever had and how you've overcome them. It looks a lot better overconfidence - shows that ur not perfect but also that you can learn from your experiences. Other than that they seem to really value extracurricular and work experiences. They want to know that you're involved outside your academic life.

These are just a couple of questions they asked in my interview:
- What kind of leader are you?
- Who is a person in the business world who you admire, and why?
- Tell me of your proudest achievement? How did you measure the success of this achievement?
- If you were "King" of the business world and could do anything you wanted to change the business world, what would you do and why?
- Tell me of a situation where you had to resolve conflict in a team situation
- Tell me of a situation where you faced culture shock, and how you handled it
- If you had a colleague at work who is in a team with you but doesn't work or behave appropriately, what would you do?
- What do you do when you're not studying or managing your student society?
- Why do you want to go into consulting? (I stated in my application that I want to work in consulting)
- Do you have an alternate career plan if your original plans don't work?

I would just say be yourself, go over a few potential interview questions, your CV, and your cover letter so that you have answers ready, and be confident. They often look at points from your CV/Cover letter and then expand on that in the interview. Personally I thought my interview didn't go too well but ended up getting an offer anyhow.

Really depends on where you want to work and what type of work you want. Also what type of style do you like. LSE is more renown around the world. Everyone has somewhat heard of LSE. Their MiM is more theory base and from the course page it seems to focus people to go into IBanking and Consulting. LBS is more niche sort of speak. It's truly just known by business people and no one else. Kinda like Western Ontario (CDNian by the way). Most people I have talked to, even business students and some professional have no clue about LBS. So technically LBS is like Western and LSE is like UT. If they know about ur school LBS is amazingly prestigious, but like I said the school is not commonly known.

LSE is mostly theory and it's going to be tougher, but since you have a non-business degree you might learn more. LBS seems a lot more slack and easy comparatively. The cool thing about LBS is they encourage the students to travel. My frd who's in it told me she was at Stockholm a month back and now she's going to Ghana. Both are LBS course trips. Honestly I am not sure about the Ibanking reputation for LBS, but it seems decent when I looked at their employment reports.

If you feel don't confident in your commerce/business knowledge and you want to learn the theories, I think LSE is better. If you want to have fun and network/interact with people from around the world. Doing fun and interactive case studies and field trips go to LSE.

Did a lot of research cause I only applied to those two and I already got accepted to LSE. Submitted my LBS application not long ago, so I am waiting for results.

If you had an interview at lbs its should take a week. If you had it via Skype or at another country it would take 2 or 3 weeks

Hi guys,

I'm a graduate of the MiM program at LBS (class of 2011). Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the course. And I'm not sure what this nonsense about needing to be wary of Lisa Mortini is, but she's really cool. If you want to come to LBS, you need to know what you have to offer and why you want to come here, but any interviewer will ask you those things. No need to be extra wary of Lisa :-)

For all the admits, welcome to the LBS family. Everyone else, good luck with your applications!

I think it's before starting in September, but you could always contact the school stating your situation and getting an official response
