@ hofimax
That sounds great! But what do you mean by stream? Is it like a class?

@luftwaffe @wvb25
Gooooood luck! Hope you've found some useful information from this thread =)

Don't worry about the living expenses too much. All the areas right around LBS are ridiculously expensive, because it's right near Regent's Park, but I would never live there. It's really not necessary for me to live within walking distance of the school. I lived in Zone 2 last year and paid £320 a month for a pretty good sized furnished room. I don't expect to get that lucky again, but under £500/month is completely feasible. Plus we get discounted Tube fares, and there's always Iceland's where you can get frozen meals for £1 (and Primark!). I only made £8.50 an hour and was able to take care of all my expenses and save up some money. The only problem is that you have to have the funding for what they've determined your living expenses will be up front. I'll get the money, but definitely won't spend all of it.

I paid a lot more in rent living in a shared room in Los Angeles than I did in London, even with the conversion.

I'm looking into different housing options right now and I was wondering when your Orientation Week took place last year? The 2010 dates aren't confirmed yet. Also, would you suggest arriving in London 1 week or 2 weeks prior to the Orientation?

Last year we started off with Orientation Week on September 1. I have no information about the MiM2011 start.

Hey Hofimax, I was wondering how the employment rate is right now for the current MiMs. Also, woud you be able to share a little bit about the types of students who are struggling to find jobs right now? For example, what are they're backgrounds, maybe where they are in the class, and what companies they have tried? Thanks!

Just wanted to add here, that my fellow MiMs are still getting job offers on a constant basis (for example 3 during last week). Also those who are looking for jobs in their country of origin are often still in the application process. Furthermore I guess that up to 10% or so are not actively looking for a job for various reasons... be it a family company, further education...

Since I have given you guys an idea about the interview from my experience can't say much more but about the
"5) Consider wider issues within the business world, including how these may impact your career options, post-graduation." that you mentioned|:
Firstly I don't recall anyone from my class getting that.. I guess its come up after the tough hiring year of 2009-10 that most programmes have faced. They probably want to assess whether you do realize how hard it might be to get a job in say IB or Consulting if things didn't improve much... (although since January hiring is back up) ... So be prepared to give them an idea of how flexible you are in your career goals while at the same time focused. (maybe IB/consulting back home might be an option to bring up etc)

Hei there, rstl ! I am also considering applying for the class of 2012, and it's nice to meet you. About the GPA, I saw on the official website that there is a minimum 3.5 GPA required... I guess that they pay a lot of attention on the GMAT also, since there applicants come from so many background

Hi there... I know from first hand experience and info that they don't pay A LOT of attention on the GMAT (much less than US schools for sure!)... it is just another aspect to take into account when they are making the decisions, that's all.

What they want is DIVERSITY! They want someone DIFFERENT.

Is the MiM an alternative to the MBA or would one get an MiM, more work experience, and then get an MBA?

MiM is a pre-experience program. Admission office discourages anyone with more than 12 months of FT work experience to apply. Quite clearly MiM is not an alternative to MBA.

by Full Time work experience, do you mean any kind of work or only relevant work related to Management?

Thank you

No I believe it is all full time work experience.

This is somewhat of a useless post but I was just wondering if someone could throw some ideas in this thread (or at some other appropriate place) on how to market this thread about LONDON BUSINESS SCHOOL MASTERS IN MANAGEMENT 2011?
The reason I bring it up is because we have been working on a marketing challenge for the past week and I was thinking if I could somehow use this thread if it becomes (or more likely is made) very very active. Active enough to pop up on google searches for terms like "Masters in Management" or "LBS Masters" or some other variant searches. Any ideas people? (Feel absolutely free to post here or pm)

BB, will take permission from you, before acting upon any idea

I was waiting for someone to start this post
Thanks MJ for starting the discussion and also sharing your your experiences.
I want to ask whether there are any students in the MIM batch of yours who are interested in Energy sector and is MIM relevant for them.

Hi MJ,

Thanks for creating this post...just the kind of place where you can throw all your doubts out for discussion. How is the programme going? I am applying for MiM 2011, so just wanted to know the overall development of the MiM. Also, is the application process too stringent? What kind of GMAT score is considered as acceptable?

Looking forward to hear back from you.

Cheers..
