How is LBS for entrepreneurship, and social entrepreneurship specifically? Does LBS want students interested in entrepreneurship or would this be frowned upon as a short-term career goal?

Thanks for any help.


Entrepreneurship as a short-term career goal is definitely not a disadvantage. In my graduating class there are 5 start-ups I know of involving 8 students. The Entrepreneurship club is one of the most active clubs on campus. There are plenty of electives as well (in addition to Entrepreneurship Summer School). Also, check the E-100 group:

Thanks for the feedback. Do many students take part in the Entrepreneurship Summer School? Looks like you don't have to pass up an internship in order to take part. Or is that intensive week at the beginning of summer a deal killer for students with internships?

@bsd_lover: are you finishing up at LBS or heading into year 2? Interested to know what you'll be doing -- and where you'll be doing it -- after finishing up.

I can't quite remember how many participate in the end. Perhaps 30+? You have to apply (not everyone gets a spot).

Yes, you can do both, ESS and an internship, no problem. Many students do 2 internships during the summer, so ESS shouldn't be an issue.

I have just started 2nd year. Been an incredible first year - had a wonderful internship. But that's all the details I want to share due to privacy reasons.

Is this starting to be embarrassing or what? It's almost 5 pm in London, still no online application... I am guessing their IT will be working overtime tonight :roll:

The application portal is down. May be too many people tried to create an account at the same time. Soooooo much competition....... :(
