Thank you for your continued interest in our MBA programme. We recently hosted our Open Day. We’re excited to offer the recordings of the live sessions, and additional on demand content with some useful insights about the programme, the LBS community and the opportunity to introduce you to some of the people that you will meet along your admissions journey.
The sessions have been specifically selected to ensure you hear first-hand what we feel is most important to you.
Welcome speech from David Simpson (Recruitment and Admissions Director, MBA and MiF.) David introduced the LBS community and gave a glimpse of what you can expect as a student. David Simpson was joined by Helen Foley (Programme Director, MBA) and Charlotte Smith (Senior Recruitment Manager) as they discussed key programme details and how to apply to the MBA programme. They also provided useful insights on what makes a good MBA candidate and why you should consider joining London Business School.

The Career Centre supports you in your career development during your degree. In this session, Christian Dummett, Head of Career Centre, gave an overview of the services they offer as well as an introduction to how to work with them during your programme.
