I keep getting asked for information regarding london business school clubs.

Check here for clubs and when in doubt contact the club leaders directly (I know personally of only a subset of these clubs which I am a member of)

2) Why risk it? I'm sure you can trim 5-10 words without compromising the quality of your essay.


I agree. You don't want to piss off the AdCom, especially when they explicitly state that any words in excess of the limit may be disregarded.


thanks Embeayy and Skahuh!

Hi I'm planning to apply to LBS for an executive MBA degree. However, I have only 5 years of experience in the Petroleum Company: 2 years in US, 2 years in Kazakhstan and 1 year in UK. I have Master's in Engineering. My work has purely been technical and project management. I have managed several big projects, and currently working on 3 projects with total value over $50M.

GMAT - 650
GPA - 4.89 ou of 5.00

My question: How realistic is it to get into Executive MBA with 5 years of experience.

you will need to provide strong rationale for why Executive MBA is more suitable for you. EMBA is more for advanced stage professionals with over 10 years WE.

Hi bsd, could you tell me how LBS reacts if I provide them with an academic recommendation instead of both work related recommendation. The reason I want one acad reco is because I am at very good terms with my former professor who happens to be the director of international affairs currently in one of the top private engineering college in my country.

Last year, they allowed for up to a week after the deadline for references to come in, but I haven't seen anything like that this year. Did anyone else?

LBS is not especially focused on academics - the average age reflects the importance of work experience. Although the ad-com may never admit it on record, I personally feel that they would prefer a work recommendation.

I can echo this. I have a poor undergrad record and I called admissions to discuss how to list my mathematics and statistics graduate extension courses. They literally told me that those classes weren't important and they don't recommend anyone take courses to offset a poor academic record. Much different than US schools.

Thanks. I suppose then I have to submit both work related recos. Now have to go and ask my supervisor to write me a reco

When you say that LBS is not especially focused on academics, then can I take it for granted that my average undergrad cgpa would not create a barrier provided that I smash the Gmat (700+), and write stellar essays.

Well no you can't take this for granted either. Its a matter of "relative" importance. If undergraduate grades were an issue and if there were exinuating circumstances, do write an essay describing this.
