LBS MiM vs LSE Global MiM vs HEC-Yale M2M?  [#permalink]

Hi all, I'm in the fortunate position of having to choose between these three programs. They are all stellar but it is a difficult decision for me for various reasons. They are:
LBS MiM (1 year)
LSE Global MiM (2 years)
HEC-Yale Double Degree (2 years) in Management + Global Business and Society

Few facts about me
-I'm looking to do consulting in London after the Masters, but would be open to opportunities in the US should those open up from Yale SOM.
-Non-EU citizen, making it preferable to be in London for study to find jobs
- limited consulting/business experience, thus leaning toward a 2-year program to build that during the breaks for internships.
-Particularly conscious about brand name because my UK undergrad institution is a non-target. I understand that LBS travels far but probably not as well known in Asia-Pacific (where I'm from) compared to LSE. HEC even less so than LBS. Yale is Yale, but SOM is (supposedly) not as well regarded as LBS?

As you can see it's a pretty difficult decision. LBS would probably be the best choice if not for my limited business experience which may hinder any job hunt in the UK (thus warranting a 2 year degree). Between LSE and HEC-Yale, the latter probably has the better program (more practical) and gives exposure to two international environments. But LSE has great brand value and is in London, plus allows for a CEMS Double degree / MBA exchange also.

Any advice would be really appreciated!

My reply may be a tad too late but here's my two cents (as an LBS MiM grad)-

The LSE Global MiM is out for sure - it is way too academic (it's LSE after all), lacks the prestige of the other two schools, and the career trajectories of graduates are not aligned to consulting (not as much as the other two).

The LBS brand is actually very well-known in Asia-Pacific (particularly in South Asia and South East Asia). It is a Top 5 business school worldwide- or Top 3 depending on the ranking you subscribe to- and has an excellent alumni network in the world of business.

I hate to burst your bubble but your chances of securing an interview (let alone a visa) from a top consulting firm in the London (e.g. MBB) are very slim if you are not EU AND if your undergrad degree is not from a selective institution. You have a better shot if you aim for other consulting firms but due to the Brexit and current climate, work visas are still hard to come by. France seems more open in this regard (but generally only if you can speak French).

Yale has a great pedigree and you shall get to interact with students from other programmes/faculties. This is pretty cool from both a learning and "networking" perspective.

As far as course ranking, business school branding and school culture goes, LBS comes up tops. LBS has a very collegial culture and you also interact with and study alongside experienced professionals from other programmes such as MBA, MFin, EMBA etc. However, the Double Degree is an attractive option to give you a strong standing in both the US and Europe, and you can also pursue internship(s) to bolster your CV. Furthermore, firms in London like HEC grads so the UK options remains open.

Hope that helps, and good luck! Feel free to PM me if you have yet to make a decision. :)
