Masters in Management - LBS or St. Gallen? [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2014, 10:43
Hi guys,

I am holding offers for the Masters in Management programs at LBS and St. Gallen. Those were my favorite schools and the only ones I applied to. I'll have to make a decision now...

I really like the international atmosphere and diversity at LBS and the school certainly has a stellar international reputation. Though I think that the reputation and the excellent ranking results mainly apply to the MBA and executive programs and thus I was wondering how the MiM program is generally perceived? So far the MiM program does not appear in any rankings, therefore it is a bit hard to benchmark and see how competitive the program really is. Does someone have any insights / thoughts on that?

As for St. Gallen, it is a well-established school and highly regarded in Europe, especially the German-speaking area (where I come from and probably intend to work), but lacks international reputation. The program (Business Management, not SIM) is quite new and not very international (mostly German-speaking students), but the career prospects coming from St. Gallen are excellent. Most professionals in the German-speaking area I spoke to seemed to be very impressed with the school.

What are your thoughts on the programs? I am particularly looking at career prospects in strategy consulting upon graduation.

As for the personal fit, I really liked both schools, each program has its advantages and disadvantages. I probably felt a bit more comfortable at LBS due to the strong community and diversity, St. Gallen seemed less "welcoming" and personal in that sense.

I would really appreciate your opinions, thank you very much in advance!

I would go with LBS. The MiM at LBS is very competitive. Not that St. Gallen is not, but on the whole, I would rate St. Gallen a tier below LBS (to be blunt).

Of course, if your goal is something very specific, and St. Gallen is stronger there, go with St. Gallen.

LBS for sure. The quality of the faculty is extremely high and you will get to mingle to some extent with the top quality MBA students too.
