Which college do I choose between Oxford, Insead, LBS.
What I like best of each of the schools:
Oxford: The reputation of the whole university
INSEAD: Highest ranked MBA program among the three
LBS: Its a 2 year program

Indian Male. 4 years work exp in construction. Family Business. Looking to switch to finance or consulting. Scholarship would be nice but not needed.

Is this enough information or do you need more?

If you've read much on this forum you know there is zero way for us to know which program you should choose. All we can do is basically say which program is ranked higher in a general sense without knowing your background and goals (career/personal/location/etc.).

Different schools are better for different things.

Have you been admitted to all three programs? Your status on the sidebar doesn't show it. Either way, its impossible for people to know without additional info about your demographic, background, career goals, unique personal needs (eg. major city versus suburban campus), financial status, etc etc.

I'm not overly versed in these schools so hopefully someone who knows them better can chime in - but LBS is probably the best for finance/consulting. Especially being in London which is a global hub for finance (and plenty of consulting). INSEAD provides different opportunities as well and depends on if location of where you go matters. All will carry some wait outside of their cities but INSEAD probably travels the best.

If you CAN stay in London I'd go LBS - more career opportunities in finance/consulting and strength of network locally. Otherwise Insead. Oxford's MBA is still too young I think to really be in the same convo as the other two (as much as I want to go there myself).

P.S: This is assuming you got into all three - which if you did congratulations all three are great schools so kudos if you managed it. Otherwise if you're just thinking about applying LBS sounds like the one to focus on (but don't only apply to LBS, tough school and don't want to make any assumption that you'll get in just because you applied).

This forum is for discussions after the admission takes place. Did you get admitting to all 3 or are we discussing it philosophically?
If you like philosophy, then highly recommend Oxford ;-)

I got interviews for all three. So im guessing I have a 50/50 chance of getting into each.
