I wonder if there are similar things out there for other schools. For what its worth, when I was in London I was mostly impressed with the school.

That post is so poorly written you have to wonder... he's got a major beef with the school for whatever reason.

I always take the people who feel like this with a grain of salt. Usually these are written by people who either had unrealistic goals or aren't as special as they thought. Not everyone is going to get hired into a VC/PE/HF or even by Goldman Sachs or McKinsey, there aren't enough positions for everyone to get their first choice career opportunity. Some people feel a sense of entitlement and if they don't get what they want they wont accept blame...it has to be someone elses fault since their parents told them they were the best their whole lives.

Occasionally they make valid points but I think it boils down more to what their expectations were vs the reality of the school.

"100HBS students in London makes about 10 percent of HBS MBA... and London with 320MBAs would not be able to provide all London needs for finance and consulting even if everyone wanted to work in this sectors in London."

Even if it is true, what he "accidentally" forgot to tell is that usually they are not Americans, usually are people who got a spot at american companies and as it's easier to get a VISA in London they go to work there. I've heard that CBS has great numbers in finance in London also. But honestly that is not the "vibe" I felt when I visited the school...

I know 2 people graduated from the MBA and 1 from the MiF and all of them are very happy with the school and their degrees. The MiF one even told me the quality of teaching there is terrific.

At the GSB? No way!
Now at HBS... :wink:

Just kidding. I actually heard the same message from students everywhere, from Michigan to HBS: don't forget you need to put in the hard work and have realistic expectations. You'll have lots of interesting opportunities, but it's up to you to make them happen.
