REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]
This review is for LBS
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2016
If you are not an European, neither have you got any connections to Europe, LBS is definitely not for you. The British are quite xenophobic in general, so as an Asian I never felt I belong to London. LBS has a strong reputation in London, but only in London, I’m afraid. So think carefully before committing to this choice.
LBS is cheaper compared to other world Top 10 MBA programs, but as I said, if you don’t belong to Europe, it is still not worth it to study in London.
If you want to use an MBA study as a way to immigrate, American schools are way better.
I would have chosen an American school, if I knew upfront what l would encounter in those two years.
FYI, every word above is sincere.
If you want to work in the EMEA area, LBS is perfect. Otherwise, please choose an American school.

Everything in your review is wrong except for the sentence regarding working in EMEA (although South America and Asia ought to be included here too). The data speaks for itself.
The rule of thumb is that the man/woman on the ground has the best perspective. Unless you are a current student, you should absorb every piece of information and appreciate an honest perspective.
I agree. The data suggests the review was not written by an LBS MBA student or alum.
This is quite a disturbing or perhaps overly sensitive comment. @BB can you in any way verify the reviewer?
This review was posted before we started requiring verification of the school's email address so I have looked up the user on linked in using their email and I can confirm that they indeed have attended LBS ans graduated in 2016 as suggested on their profile. https://gmatclub.com/forum/members/member-386351.html
Further, per their LinkedIn profile with 300+ personal connections, this person found work outside of Europe, as indeed stated on the review. It leads to be believe it is an honest and a real review.
The review states "The British are quite xenophobic in general" - this is most definitely not true and exposes an underlying agenda . The rest of the review is similarly unfairly biased.
