FROM LBS Current Students Blog: Choices
We are defined by our choices.

In every choice, we go towards who we want to be and how we want to live our life. Every choice speaks volumes about what we care about and what our focus is.

And if LBS MBA is giving me one thing it is choices.

I spent the entire day looking at the interlinks of some of the choices I can make: electives, exchange program, GBE, internships… And I feel I need a data modelling system to crunch all this. Why is that though? Because of the immense number of choices at your fingertips.

Let’s just look at the academics. There are a certain number of core courses that are the skeleton of any MBA degree so they are mandatory but the entire second year – I repeat, the entire second year – and up to 5 subjects in year 1 are your choice entirely.

You want the MBA to be as short as possible, very compressed and go back to work? You finish in 15 months.

You want to study somewhere else? No problem. LBS will ask: which continent?

Want to give entrepreneurship a go? Join the Entrepeneurship School.

Not sure which industry you will like? You can do several internships and try.

And it goes so much beyond the academics… there are choices in every single area.

Because of previous business commitments I have not travelled a lot recently and yetthere are so many places I just want to explore… The MBA, with so many students of different nationalities, is full of treks to different countries that go on throughout the year. Perfect!

One of my classmates, and entrepreneur, came here to create his next company. He created entrepreneurship meetings with fellow classmates to brainstorm.

Another classmate is unsure of what to do next. Fine. The industry club is organising a series of events, one per week, in which different people from different industries do presentations under the titles: What is business development? What is marketing? What is operations?

I had always felt my English pronunciation gives away my origin way too much – guess what? LBS organises an accent and pronunciation course to improve your accent. How great is that?

Used to be very fit but life got in the way? There is a club for every sport.

Want to socialise? There is – literally – a party, a dinner, something every other night.

It’s unbelievable. Think of something you would like to do, something that you would like to learn. I am sure there is someone, somewhere within the class or the community that knows about it or that is interested in that too. Or if not, you can create a platform for it.

I feel like I can really make those two years whatever I want to make them be.

For me, choices are a synonym of freedom. Choices are our chance to driving our life.

I am thrilled to be here. At London Business School. Right now. Doing an MBA. And I am because I feel I have the scope, the room, the options to be myself. And to decide who I want to become, whatever that is.

Neo656 - I watched Gone Girl the other day. Superb movie. Drinking, well, only leads to me talking more about MBA to my friends. They are pretty bored by it now. So I have transitioned into more of a listener mode. But the mind and heart wanders, to all those possible avenues. No wonder I visit these threads so many times during my working hours!

Alumni celebrations in almost 100 cities mark the School’s 50th anniversary

Alumni from more than 60 countries have celebrated London Business School’s 50th anniversary at events around the world.

Events have taken place worldwide in almost 100 cities including: London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, New York and Sydney.

The series of celebrations which began with the London Alumni Club event held at the Science Museum on 2 October, has brought together alumni representing more than 45 nationalities to celebrate the School’s 50th birthday.

Nearly 400 alumni attended the celebration in London. Emeritus Professor of Marketing, Paddy Barwise, explained its significance: “The School was conceived and born in the early 1960s. In 1963 the Franks report on improving British industry included a recommendation to set up two world-class business schools. The mission was to better equip British managers to manage British businesses. We’re now ranked in the world’s top 100 universities and we are consistently in the top tier of global business schools.”

Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School also spoke at the Science Museum. He added: “We have become truly global in a very short period of time.”

Pointing to the impact the School has had on the world of business over the last 50 years, Professor Birkinshaw told the story of Gary Hamel, now Visiting Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, who taught at the School from 1984-1994. He said: “Gary has changed the way we talk and think about the world of business. We have Gary and CK Pralahad to thank for the term ‘core competency’. They turned strategy thinking on its head. Up until that point we had tried to understand competitive advantage through the five forces and industry analysis. They changed the way we think about competitive advantage. Competitive advantage, they said, comes from within. It’s about understanding what we do better than anyone else.”

The School’s impact has not been restricted to strategy and management. The 2010s started under the shadow of global recession. When Andrew Scott, Professor of Economics addressed the G7 deputy finance ministers at a castle near Rome in June 2010, he was in a minority. The ministers were feeling the pressure of their rising national debts and were keen to do something about it. But Scott wanted them to hold back.

Based on his research, Scott told them they should expect debt to be high for the next few decades. He said history showed that was the right way to deal with a financial crisis and there were ways to cope with such long, large debt swings. They should let debt stabilise the economy, rather than using the economy to stabilise debt.

“It didn’t chime with the mood of the time,” says Scott. “I was saying that debt is a means to an end as opposed to something you should target. And I remember being told by a politician on another occasion, that no, politically debt is an end, people care about debt, so we have to bring it down.”

Despite his feelings about that meeting, and similar meetings with the UK Treasury and European Central Bank, things have so far been panning out in Scott’s direction. Debt has carried on rising and it looks like that will continue. The US government has continued to borrow. The UK government has been rather less strong on its austerity measures than it stated it would be. And the debt figures remain high. The UK’s debt is currently more than US$1 trillion, about 88 per cent of GDP. The US’s debt is close to US$17 trillion, just over 100 per cent of its GDP.

Scott’s not saying that governments should ignore debt, only that they don’t need to keep it below the 90 per cent of GDP suggested by prominent Harvard economist Kenneth Rogoff. And from UK history he knows that a couple of times government debt has reached 180 to 250 per cent of GDP and the government has just brought it down over the long term.

Happy 50th Birthday, LBS ...
:wave :woohoo
