Hey guys,

I've been reading this forum for months now and it's nearly time to apply r1 so I'd like to ask u guys some questions.

Is the essay topics:

1) what motivates you
2) evidence of leadership and team work
3) why you are looking to pursue a Masters in Management at this point in your life
4) what you will bring to the London Business School community

and if so how many pages is expected for each of the questions?

also I'm wondering whether you can reapply in other rounds in the same academic year if LBS rejected my application?



Hey lizbelv,

I think you have the wrong questions, as the current questions are as follows (I obtained them through the application site):

Question 1 (600 words)
In what role do you see yourself working immediately after graduation? Why? How will your past and present experiences help you achieve this? How will the London Business School Masters in Management programme contribute to this goal? Why is this the right time for you to pursue a Masters in Management?

Question 2 (200 words)
Where do you see your career progressing five years after graduation and what is your longer term career vision?

Question 3 (500 words)

Please describe your experience of working in and leading teams, for example in your undergraduate study, professional experience, sports and social teams. Include any specific challenges you have faced. Given this experience, what role do you think you will play in your study groups during the programme?

Question 4 (400 words)

Student involvement is an extremely important part of the Masters in Management experience and this is reflected in the character of all London Business School students on campus. How do you see yourself playing a larger part in the life of the School and the Masters in Management student community during your studies?

Question 5 (300 words)

What will be your biggest contribution to the Masters in Management?


Question 6 (300 words)
(This question is optional)

Is there any other information that you believe would help the Masters in Management Admissions Committee when considering your application?


--------------------------

I am not aware if you can reapply should you be turned down. Thus, I would advise you to write adcom a mail (mm@london.edu).

Cheers and best of luck from Denmark,

/MRHDK!

Hi everyone,

I thought I would help my friend Kitsune out with answering some of your questions. I'm currently enrolled in the MiM program at LBS and am interested in pursuing a career in Media. If you any of you are looking to go in areas other than Finance and Consulting and want to know about the opportunities offered at LBS, feel free to ask. The application questions listed above are the same ones I had to answer on my application last year and I doubt they've changed that much. When writing your answers, of course highlight your academic and professional achievements, but keep in mind that LBS isn't your typical business school. You need to be intelligent and motivated to get in, but what they really want are interesting people so try to put your personality across in your essays. Make them want to invite you to an interview because you're a person they'd love to sit down with and get to know. If you get accepted you will be privileged to meet some of most interesting people you've ever come across and they will all inspire you and teach you different things. It's a very social place, so if you want to stay in your room all year and only do homework you'll miss out on the whole experience. The great thing about LBS is that we learn from each other. Before class even started we received individual 20 page personality profiles. In addition to classes we meet with psychologists, individually and in groups, to determine the strengths and weaknesses of our personality and working styles and how we can adapt them to work with others. Just be prepared to leave your ego at the door! Oh, and get a smart phone. You'll need it :)

Hi, KAS1986
Thanks for your help.
I wanna engage in marketing or media in the future. I always hear that LBS is more finance focused, maybe consulting or investment bank and to succeed in applying for LBS mim, applicants had better have internships in these areas, is that so ? I'm worried about that since my internships have nothing to do with that.
Thanks

You definitely don't need to have internships in finance or consulting to be accepted into MiM. There are people here with all different types of backgrounds who want to go into many different sectors after graduation. Of course it helps if you have internships that reflect your career goals (media, marketing), but this is technically a pre-experience program so internships aren't necessary. Any experience you have will work in your favor, especially if you can relate how the skills you learned could help you in your future career aspirations. Just to give you example, my experiences were retail (part time) several Media internships, and a contract at pharmaceutical company, but all of those allowed me to develop useful skills.

pulkitgoel16,

I can't comment on your specific chances of getting accepted. It may be helpful to look at some student profiles on the program website or contact AdCom. Of course, you should always try to make your application as competitive as possible so it may be worth taking the GMAT again. At this point, your grades and work experience isn't likely to change too much, so your application essays and GMAT score are the only things you can work on.

If you feel you'd like to improve your GMAT score by retaking the exam, you would still have a good shot at getting admitted in later rounds. I know plenty of people who were accepted all the way up through Round 5. LBS looks at the whole package, so they're not going to reject someone just based on a GMAT score. I know people who received scores lower than the average but because they had other strengths in their application they were admitted. If you'd like to go to LBS you shouldn't let your GMAT score stop you from applying. As far as I know, LBS doesn't offer a Msc in International Management. You'd probably be better off asking that question in a different forum.

I'd recommend to stick to their format... the LBS CV is only 1 page for even EMBAs...

I don't know what the current application website looks like since I don't have access to it, but I uploaded any additional documents in the section that's labeled as such, which I believe is the same place where you can upload your transcript. I don't know about any English language exams because I didn't have to take them. I would put your transcript into one file, unless it's several transcripts for separate programs. Then I would upload them separately. If you have any more questions about the application form, I would suggest contacting the admissions committee.

I backed out of the application process after looking at the european market situation, return for investment and the average salaries of different MiM programs being just half of an MBA program, thus making an MBA inevitable.

You can't really compare salaries of MiM graduates with MBA graduates as this is a pre-experience and MBA's must have a minimum of five years of work experience. Even with a MiM, a company is still not going to pay a graduate anything close to what they'd pay a candidate with substantial work experience and an MBA. You would also not be applying to the same positions as MBA graduates. The benefit of the MiM at LBS is that you learn tangible business skills as opposed to academic theory and get access to the school's alumni. You also interact with MBA, MiF and other students on a regular basis, which is a fantastic networking opportunity. Many of the older students were employed at companies that MiMs are applying to, so they have a lot of contacts. LBS just gives you the opportunity to get hired at a higher caliber company than if you just applied direct from undergrad. It is not meant to be a replacement for an MBA.

Hi there! The employment report should be published in the following weeks. As far as I know, only a handful of MiMs didn’t get a job last year and you have to take into account that some of them actually rejected job offers, last year was awful for employment and it was the programme’s first year! I don’t know what the Employment Report will be like but I can assure you that 2011’s will be better!

Regarding admission stats, we do not have access to them.
