Hi guys,

I am planning to apply to LSE MSc Finance and MSc Risk management for 2019 intake. And would really appreciate your thoughts on my chances to get admitted. Please see my background below:

Background: Chinese (22 years old) - Woman
Education: Bachelor of Economics - University of Bath - Expected grades: Upper 2:1 (second year grades: 66.7%)
GMAT: 710 (Q50, V36)

1 year of working experience in a UK bank doing risk modelling analysis for retail sector.

I am aware that 710 is not an excellent score, but am wonder if it is enough for my application. Should I retake GMAT to get a higher scores?

regards,

Hello caroline1229


Fact that you are woman is your advantage, from diversification perspective.

In general there is trend in education to encourage women or minorities for advanced degrees, so ad com's are less harsh toward them and welcome their applications.

Work experience is really relevant and education is fine.


Now you are wrong GMAT score is really very good, no need to worry about that.

Even best UK schools like LBS have 700 as their average GMAT score of admitted applicants and beware that is for MBA program which more competitive than any master program.

Now it is safe to conclude that for Master at LSE average will be only less.


For MSc in Finance they don't even mention GMAT score request which is a good sign in terms of competitiveness, not sure what second program you are referring to, I have found two close enough MSc Risk and Finance where they request score of at least 650 and MSc Quantitative Methods for Risk Management where strangely enough there is no GMAT requirement :-o :shocked

To the best of my understanding there is no such program as MSc in Risk management currently on LSE.


Anyway, good news, you don't need to retake GMAT you are set in those terms.



If you have quantitative aptitude I would recommend you to consider also MSc Financial Mathematics (best choice) and MSc Statistics (Financial Statistics).


However, you cannot make wrong choice all LSE Financial master programs are great.



Good Luck with application ! :cool:
