Hey everybody,

we have the amazing chance to reach out to an LBS alumnus who has agreed to participate in an AMA format.

Due to a tight time-schedule, we agreed to a format in which we would collect and then share the questions with him, afterwards I will post & pin all the respective answers to this thread.

Please post all your questions in this thread, I will subsequently add them to this post so we can keep an overview of things.

List of Questions:

1. What made you choose LBS over other business schools?

2. What is your favourite memory associated with your studies at LBS?

3. Did you feel a decrease in the internationality of your class due to the impending Brexit?

4. How did you prepare for the MBA applications? What do you wish you had done and not done in hindsight?

5. Can you describe a typical day in your school?

6. How did you navigate the internship recruiting process?

7. What advice would you give to someone in the same shoes you were in last year?

8. What was your pre-MBA career?

9. Before you were accepted why did you want to do an MBA? How did that goal change throughout your studies and why did it change? (Deep question lol)

10. What was the biggest unknown/ fear before starting at LBS? Was it relocating to London? Finding housing? Financing?

11. What was the share of sponsored students in your class?

12. What clubs and other activities was he part of and how was his experience with the same?

13. Given the prime location in the heart of London, how are the part-time work opportunities during the second year?

14. Depending on if he's a recent alumnus: How has the looming Brexit has affected the MBA job market especially for foreigners (EU and Non-EU), if at all. And how does he foresee the job market reacting to it in the future?

Best regards & excuse my hiatus (work has been more than crazy lately),
Chris

Sounds good!

I will continuously update the list and also add some of the questions I had on the back of my mind.

Given the current circumstances in Britain, it is even more interesting than usual to get an Almunis perspective on things.

Regards,
Chris

3. What was the biggest unknown/ fear before starting at LBS? Was it relocating to London? Finding housing? Financing?

Thank you for the input guys.

I think I´ll keep this thread open until Friday, at this point I would share our list of questions.
It´s quite cool to see this level of participation, the more people share their question the more complete our overall picture is going to be. :)

Cheers,
Chris

Could you please ask him the proportion of students who get company sponsorship?
I have an impression that LBS prefers sponsorship students relatively to other European schools.(INSEAD, IESE,,,)

Thank you for the great opportunity, I have the following questions:
1) what is your experience / opinion about the internship recruiting process of LBS, does LBS attract the big players of the market?
2) Is LBS only for people who are focused on working in Europe or does it provide some opportunities in the USA (do american companies regard LBS alumni the same way they would regard someone from Booth for example)
3) Is it true that most companies during the interviews ask for a gmat score and that they tend to require at least a 700 .

Thank you for this initiative!

I have the following questions to add:
- What clubs and other activities was he part of and how was his experience with the same?
( I hear that a lot of students love to participate in the MBAT tournament)
- Given the prime location in the heart of London, how are the part-time work opportunities during the second year?
- Depending on if he's a recent alumnus: How has the looming Brexit has affected the MBA job market especially for foreigners (EU and Non-EU), if at all. And how does he foresee the job market reacting to it in the future?
