Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I'm in the fortunate position of having to choose between: - London Business School : Master in Management (1 year) - London School of Economics: Master in Management (2 year)
I'm really in doubt between going to LSE and LBS.
My goal upon graduation is either to join a major management consulting (strategy) firm, or going into investment banking (I keep going back and fort between man. con. and IB..., I prefer remain in London upon graduation since I heard that the trip oversees to the US is almost impossible right now with the current state of the industries) Since I haven't done an internship in consulting, will I be having a harder time getting a full time offer at a big consulting firm after one year of LBS?
I really have trouble figuring out whether the 2nd year at LSE really adds value to my education?
How is the reputation of both schools in the fields of management consulting and IB? I hear LSE is more for IB?
How is the worldwide reputation of the school? I have read on other forums that LSE is more known in the US, and LBS in Europe..?
LBS is better if you want to join a top tier consulting group. The name is solid world wide in the circles it needs to be. LSE has popular fame, and whilst that's nice to tell to your friends, it wont help your career in the way LBS will.
Also, in terms of getting into consulting, at LBS the network to meet with McKinsey, BCG and Bain MBA students is unrivalled. Lastly, the consulting club will give you amazing interview/case study practise to help you in your application.
Congrats kartboybo for getting the offers! Thanks nevermerlot for sharing. I want to apply this year for MiM in both LSE and LBS - and have been asking the same questions as well. Since I come from Asia, I'm thinking of looking for postgrad jobs in Asia later - I heard that LSE reputation's more known here, versus LBS. Does anyone know more about this, plus the kartboybo's qs about the rep for IB?
