LBS doesn’t provide student accommodation on campus; however, there are a number of places available exclusively to our students at accommodation halls around London. Details of these halls and how to apply are provided once you have received an offer for the programme.
Probably not. The MiM is designed for students wanting to step into the workplace once they graduate.
Please contact the MiM recruitment team if you have questions.
After graduating from the MiM, you can apply for the MBA as long as you meet the entry requirements.
However, you will need to apply for the programme, as non-alumni do, and will not be exempt from any coursework covered on the MiM.
Students on the London Business School (LBS) MBA have an average of five years’ work experience.
No. This programme is not recommended if you already have a MiM or an MBA as some of the management material covered is likely to be a repeat.
Core courses include Applied Microeconomics, Data Analytics for Management, Decision and Risk Analysis, Finance, Financial Accounting, Marketing, Performing in Organisations, Strategic Analysis and The Global Macroeconomy.
Your learning is supported by a wide range of electives and practical options, including LondonLAB and Global Immersion Field Trips.
Explore our programme content page for more details.
This is a full-time programme and we do not advise students to work during their degree due to the difficulty of juggling study, job applications and School activities with a part-time job.
You must successfully complete a further three electives if you undertake the additional fourth term. They run in a range of formats, and as with electives during the programme, are taken with students from all programmes.
The Masters in Management is aimed at recent graduates who have graduated within the last two years, with a maximum of two years of postgraduate work experience. You should have the motivation and desire to build a strong foundation for a career in business and may come from a diverse academic and professional background. We will consider applicants who have broad work experience in non-traditional business roles such as engineering, science and arts.
The MiM builds skills suitable for recruitment into pre-experience roles and graduate schemes in industry, banks, consultancies and other large organisations.

We accept strong undergraduate degrees in any subject area equivalent to a UK First or 2:1 or a GPA of 3.3 and above. You must complete your undergraduate degree prior to the start of the programme in September.
To apply to MiM, you must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree (or equivalent).
Yes. You must be fluent in English. If your first language is not English, you will need to prove fluency unless:
If you’ve lived in a non-English speaking country and/or your undergraduate degree wasn’t taught in English, you’re required to prove their English fluency through an English language speaking test. We recommend you take this when applying for the programme. If you apply without a test score, your application may still be reviewed.
We accept both the GMAT and GRE. You must take one of these tests prior to submitting your application. For additional information, please visit the Apply Now page.
Practice the GMAT test with London Business School's GMAT simulator and prepare yourself for the test.
We take your highest score, but we don’t combine scores from different tests.
The School does not have any arrangements for students to transfer between its programmes or to/from a programme at another institution.
The MiM is specially designed for recent graduates - so you can join straight from your undergraduate studies. It’s also suitable for those who have completed an internship or have up to two years in the workplace.
Where possible, you should submit one academic and one professional reference. Select referees who know you well and who can comment in depth on your interactions in the classroom or workplace. Title is not as important as relationship.
If you don’t have a professional referee, two academic ones will be accepted. However, if you have work experience, the Admissions Committee will expect a recommendation from a past employer.
Please note that the referees do not need to write a letter for you. When you have saved the names and details of your two referees, we will email them a form with specific questions to answer. Your referees will be required to complete the online form within the deadline round you aim to apply by.
Yes, you’ll need to provide a certified translation. A soft copy is required at the application stage. If you are made an offer, you’ll need to provide a hard copy of both the English and original transcripts in person before the programme starts.
Answers over the word limit will not be considered by the Admissions Committee. We look for concise, informative answers within the word limit that demonstrate your potential for success on the programme.
Please view the deadline information on the how to apply page.
If you have missed the final deadline, please get in touch with the Recruitment Team. We may still be accepting a few final applications. If so, they will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Only test score reports (e.g. GRE, TOEFL) and transcripts are accepted. Any other documents sent by post will not be accepted.
We do not provide feedback on unsuccessful applications. You may only apply once per academic year to the Masters in Management.
Currently, if you are not a national of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you need a visa to study in the UK. Applying for a UK visa to study at LBS is a straightforward process.
For more information, please visit our visa requirements page.
Tuition fees for the Masters in Management 2021 intake are £36,600.
There will be an additional payment of £7,500 for students electing to do the fourth term.
You will have the option to pay in two instalments before the end of Term 1. The first instalment deadline is September, and the second is December. You can also pay in full when you start the programme.
LBS offers several financing options to support your graduate studies, including merit funds and bursaries. Around 20% of the Early Careers class each year receives funding from one of the School’s scholarships, which are supported by the School, alumni and external donors.
In addition to our own scholarship portfolio, there are also external loan options that admitted students can apply to, including Prodigy and Future Finance.
