Masters in Finance London Business School (MiF LBS) [#permalink] New post 26 Dec 2009, 22:55
Hi

Does anyone have any idea about
- total number of applications,
- number of applicants interviewed,
- number of applicants given final offers, and
- number of applicants who joined the LBS MiF program.

Would appreciate, if somebody can provide data for last 3-4 years.

Regards

Talked to the MiF office. They said they receive about 700 applications for 125 seats.

Don't know the stats for % interviewed, % offers and yield.

These MiF slots are every bit as competitive as the MBAs. They have a mini community of their own in the broader campus but are involved in all of the schools social events and clubs. I have personally made a couple of very knowledgeable MiF friends (my aims are very finance focused too but I'm a career switcher). Unfortunately that is the limit of my knowledge about the specifics of the program. We will take a lot of the finance 2nd year electives with the MiFs.

Good luck with it.

ps. I might merge this post to the broader LBS 2010 thread

Thanks for the replies :)

I also could find out that final batch size of students
in 2004-05 was 125,
in 2006-07 143,
in 2008-09 146, and
in 2009-10, it's 122.

I read somewhere that around slightly fewer than twice number of students, who are finally selected, are invited for interview. But not sure of it. Considering 700 applications (as mentioned by levfin2003), number of interview calls looks ok.

I think LBS has reduced the MiF batch size in 2009-10 as compared to earlier years because of ample supply of finance graduates in markets but less demand in the financial organizations.

Regards

When will LBS be announcing interviews for round 2 candidates? The only thing I heard from them was that my application was complete and under review. Or should I give up hope now.

What are the criteria that LBS look for in their MiF candidate? Which one of those are most important? GMAT, GPA, essay, recommendation, interview??
