More like 500 odd Admits - that is everyone who has been given an offer to date so depends on the yield now but a £6000 deposit due in few weeks will give much better view of what they need from round 4 and waitlist.


how can you say 500? where did you get this number?
on linkedin/fb group it seems that currently 250/300 have been admitted

LBS portal (intranet). Admits join the linkedin and facebook group, not required, so will underbake the true number (the facebook group is actually not an official one). Remember people will not have paid the initial deposits and will have other offers in subsequent rounds etc so the actual yield from those admits is unknown. Thats why LBS runs the waitlist and round 4 decisions are made after the large June deposit as they will have much better opinion on actual class constitution.

CBS (as a proxy) runs a yield of ~70% - applied to LBS assuming yield is similar theres still 50-60 odd spots to claim yet.

gcb09173 - thanks, that's very helpful for some of us who are trying to navigate through the dark pool that is this waitlist! I'm not sure how long some of us can keep going... commiserations to all who didn't get in this waitlist round.

gcb09173 - do you know if anyone made it out of the waitlist this time round? Rejection or acceptances - it would be good to hear if anyone heard anything other than a standard "you're still in the waitlist" sort of message.

Yes. This is quite surprising that there have been no rejections or acceptances we have heard of from the waitlist - I am still sure there must be some movement? Bit unusual that the waitlist has been this static....

Possibly not the best news with term starting in August now...fear running out of time here.

Let's see- with 500 odd ppl being offered, it's tough odds for 100-150 to drop out even if given a comfortable breakage rate. Quite surprised no ones heard of rejection/acceptance at all from waiting list - have to really sympathise with anyone from r1 waiting list!

If we don't get in does our app get carried fwd?

Has anyone from Round 4 seen a change to their My Profile > Applications page at this point?

I still see only:

MBA
Type:
Start Date: TBA
Application Deadline: TBA

I believe that others had seen updates in these fields at some point, so it seems strange to still have no changes on Interview decision day.

Yes it can include studying abroad but they are particularly keen to understand how you work in an international setting. That really doesn't have to be working abroad but could be dealing with cross border teams through audiovisual technology, or connecting with teams in another country regularly - sharing work etc.

I.e. could deal with outsourced teams in another country who are undertaking work for you - or you collaborate with colleagues in another country on a sales initiative - or you have to gather information from teams spread across the country.

It could be part of your permanent role or it could be a short term project etc. The interview I was asked about working with teams abroad and the challenges with facing people from different cultures in that work context. SO ideally you can find some work experience with an international dimension to it that you can leverage in the essays.


I am grateful to you for very informative answers ,gcb09173!

2 weeks ago I met with local consultant on study abroad. During the meeting, topic was especially on admission to LBS and LBS like schools, he insistingly focused on having a job in managerial position which is one of 3, 4 must have merit in order to get into LBS. Added that, 2 years of managerial position is bottom line.. - How realistic this approach or reality is? :roll:

Not sure I entirely understand that last paragraph. However as for a managerial position I'm not entirely sure that's accurate - I certainly haven't had any 'direct report responsibility'. However what you must have is 'Impact' - that is the work you do has a significant impact on the organisation.

The 'leadership' component could be in matrix teams where you are generating buy in from stakeholders etc to see completion of a project. Not necessarily actually being in charge of others. Hope that helps.

Top MBA Programs in Technology (Updated 2015)  [#permalink]

New post 25 May 2015, 04:08

By Paul Lanzillotti, Amerasia Consulting Group
OUR RANKING OF BUSINESS SCHOOL PROGRAMS BY PERCENTAGE OF GRADUATES ENTERING THE TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY IN 2014.
Today's blog post is a follow up to our Top MBA Programs in Finance ranking. It's also our continued attempt at ranking top MBA programs by industry and based on publicly available data.

UC Berkeley Haas comes out on top when it comes to sending graduates (as a percentage of all graduates in 2014) back into the technology industry. UCLA Anderson is second, but it's not even close. Hands down, Haas is the place to be if you're into technology and want to work for a related firm in the industry.
Image

BUYER BEWARE
Now before you get too far into interpreting the numbers, a few words of caution. What we have done is an inaugural attempt at a numerically based ranking and its not perfect. It's based on our interpretation of the numbers put forth by top business schools.
  • Let us explain. Most MBA career centers report employment numbers according to the categories that we use in our rankings. Some schools break "industry" categories into further sub-categories. Other programs - i.e. Michigan Ross - roll up their industry categories under more general headers like "manufacturing". So you could be a "marketing" professional but be within the manufacturing industry. To be forthright, it's a little confusing. (This is why we have decided to exclude Michigan Ross from some categories until we gather a little more insight into their self-reported numbers.)

None-the-less, we have tried to make sense of it all and to do this we did combine some categories in order to get an apples-to-apples comparison across schools. Clear as mud?
WHY WE USE EMPLOYMENT DATA TO RANK SCHOOLS
Our opinion is that recruiting (i.e. who's hiring) drives most programs "investment" decisions - in students, faculty, courses, experiential initiatives, alumni outreach, etc.  So to know to what a specific MBA program is really all about, you need to see the end result. In other words, what industries are hiring MBA graduates and from what schools?

We compiled this ranking based on information taken directly from the following MBA employment reports.

Haas http://haas.berkeley.edu/groups/careercenter/reports/14-15ReportSummary.pdf

UCLA Anderson http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/Documents/areas/adm/cmc/2014%20PARKER%20CMC%20Employment%20Report%2002.10.15%20LR.pdf

Cornell Johnson http://www.johnson.cornell.edu/Career-Management/Employment-Report-for-Two-Year-MBAs

UVA Darden http://www.darden.virginia.edu/recruiters-companies/hire-an-mba/employment-reports/
FINALLY, DOES THE WORLD REALLY NEED ANOTHER BUSINESS SCHOOL RANKING?
We think "yes". We've never felt completely comfortable with the rankings because (to our knowledge) the raw data that drives the US News and Businessweek rankings has never been fully disclosed. So we decided to start over and with the very numbers that the school's career centers are reporting via their respective employment reporting.

That being said, we welcome any constructive feedback you may have. Email us at MBA@amerasiaconsulting.com with comments or if you're looking for an expert admissions consultant to lead you through the application process.

A royal end to our first year  [#permalink]

FROM LBS Current Students Blog: A royal end to our first year
Sitting in our last class of term, a lecture on sustainability and part of our ‘Business, Government and Society’ course, I was feeling confused by how quickly the first year flew by. Before the lecture our stream had gathered on the sunny front lawn for a celebratory picnic to mark the last time we would ever all sit in a lecture theatre together. Little did we know that this particular class was going to be even more memorable than we had anticipated.

We did wonder as we walked through Sainsbury building on our way to the lecture theatre – what were all the security presence was for. As the lecturer, Andrew Scott, Professor of Economics, wrapped up the first half of class, he shared details of the guest speaker who had been scheduled for the end of the lecture. Well, I won’t keep you in suspense any longer – it was none other than His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales! Or Prince Charles, son of the Queen, father of Princes William and Harry, and grandfather of George and Charlotte, as he is also known.

The Prince of Wales began by asking us whether we had covered sustainability as part of our course. It’s not every day you have the opportunity to talk with the Royal Family, so I put up my hand. I explained that as well as our Business, Government and Society course, we had also covered a case on The Body Shop.

His Royal Highness went on to talk about The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S), an organisation he set up over a decade ago to get the finance, accounting and investor community to support a real shift towards a sustainable economy. He expressed his concern that “we talk about the human economy in isolation from the natural economy” and stressed that we have to “encourage business to think more long term”. He asked us whether we had heard about the circular economy, which is something that I actually only found out about since starting the MBA, through the very interesting Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship which was promoted on campus last term.

The Prince of Wales went on to speak to a gathering of deans and programme directors from leading business schools, hosted on campus, to promote accounting for sustainability in their MBA and research programmes.

The timing was fitting, a day before the School’s Society.Economy.Environment Summit , which  addressed he future of sustainable business with nearly 100 attendees and high-profile speakers from organisations such as Marks & Spencer and GlaxoSmithKline, as well as A4S. I co-organised the event so I hope you’ll forgive the plug!

All in all it was an incredible high to end the first year on, and campus was buzzing with excitement all afternoon, fuelled by excited student selfies taken with the Prince in the background as he left campus.
