Exceeded my expectations


This review is for LBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2019

Experience during the program

LBS has been such a wonderful experience this past couple of months - and I really think this program is underrated.

Awesome student body
The class is extremely diverse and I know after this I will have a close connection with someone from all major economic zones fo the world. Furthermore, most people being down to earth and eager to connect and help each other and we have a lot fun - balls, cultural days, weekly pub etc. Lastly, the school spends a lot of time working to help the study groups bond and work together. This has been a great learning exercise too.

Fantastic career development and coaching opportunities
There is not one day that goes by where there isn't some exciting talk on campus from established corporates, start-ups, business icons and even sports figures. There is plenty of opportunity to learn and build a network in whatever your area of focus is London location is a big advantage). I was also impressed by how much leadership/personal coaching have access to including a one-on-one session with an executive coach early on in the program.

Pick your own adventure program
The ability to tailor and design the experience you want is really a great advantage. Whether that is doing 2 internships, doing an exchange to an international Uni or travel the program gives you a chance to truly explore. An opportunity that is very in life.

Such a great program, the school could do better to promote what it is offering because it's offering is far superior to some schools ranked above it.

About professors, classes and curriculum

A mix bag of professors especially in the core curriculum. However, as a theme though most seem to really care about the students and be passionate about teaching.

About job placement process

The school provides an easy structured process to intern/work at the typical post-MBA jobs (consulting, banking, Amazon etc.)

They could do better with guiding students not interested in the typical paths. So far, however, a combination of the LBS brand, London location, Alumni network and campus events have provided me some access to alternative opportunities.
