Masters in Management: London Business School vs. EM Lyon [#permalink] New post 17 Jun 2011, 07:35
Hey guys!

I'm 20
French
Bachelor Management and Business Administration - University of Reading (2011)
GMAT: 710
Very little work experience: 2 small internships


I have been admitted to both EM Lyon Business School (5th Master in Management FT) and London Business School, both for the Masters in Management.

I am aware of LBS' prestige but I still think both schools can give me a lot. Here is my point of view, but I'd like yours too! :)

EM LYON

pros:
- 3 years programme (2 years classes + 1 year internship(s) in between) unlike LBS which is only 1 year
- work experience
- I think I want to start my career in France or Switzerland. London would be fine too but for the same job I'd choose France. Obviously this is if I have a choice. If I dont, I will be ready to work even outside Europe.
- school on the rise (like i mentioned before--> 5th MiM according to FT)
- The wish to go back to my country + high quality of life (family, friends, boyfriend, near home)
- mix of diplomas (1 UK (bachelor) and 1 French(MiM))

Cons:
- Less prestigious than LBS, especially internationally. Also less prestigious then 3 top French Grandes Ecoles (HEC, ESSEC, ESCP)--> may be a risk to be behind HEC, ESSEC and ESCP people in the french job market
- Lyon, compared to London, is not at the heart of business


LBS

pros:
- prestigious
- very international (network, etc.)
- London: very active city
- Name on CV

cons:
- only one year
- no work experience with degree


So, EM LYON or LBS??????????????

Thanks a lot guys!

At the LBS MiM program, you will have plenty of opportunities to network and visit France and recruit for French and Swiss opportunities. Although its a new program, the MiM grads are doing wonderfully well in adding to the campus community and getting great jobs. One aspect that you should not ignore is that you will get access to an amazing MBA network and the current MBA students are always willing to help and guide with career direction.

Good luck.

Based on the information found in your list above, it seems that LBS would be a great choice. It's quite difficult for any school to match LBS in terms of prestige, quality, and location. But, as you said, EM Lyon offers something for you as well.
