Focused on action-oriented learning
“Business is a different experience at LBS. Here, you learn real skills, not just how to analyse information.”
A big picture view
“I knew that I wanted to work in business but with an academic background in languages and history, I needed to build a new knowledge base before approaching the market. I really didn’t need more academia."
“At LBS, I found a degree that would round off the analytical skills I’d learned in my undergraduate degree and give me an understanding of how to apply them to business. Even if you’ve studied business before, it’s a different experience at LBS. Here, you’re learning real skills, not just how to analyse information."
“For me, this is what sets it apart from other business schools. I like what LBS teaches and how they teach it. The School has a reputation for building practical skills. I love that I am able to show people my CV and say, ‘This is what I learned and this is how I can apply it to this job."
“The unbelievably diverse nature of the MiM participants only makes things more interesting. Perhaps I appreciate this more coming from French Canada and growing up in a cultural melting pot.”
Finding lifelong support
“Business is global. You have to work with others who have different ways of doing things. I’m now more aware of how I’m shaped - good and bad - by where I’ve come from."
“People have a tendency to draw on their own knowledge and life experiences and stand by it as if it’s gospel. This doesn’t work in a multinational study group, though! You have to think about the question first and then try and answer it utilising the strengths of everyone in your group."
“That big-picture view permeates every aspect of the LBS experience. The whole community is so open to the world - faculty, staff, students and alumni. I’ve connected with people who I know I’ll be friends with for life."
“I still have this sense that I’m part of something permanent, even though I’ve left. There’s such a feeling of camaraderie.”
“I was particularly impressed with the way my accounting professor, Dr Emmanuel de George, used current events to make accounting relevant for people in all areas of business. His lectures are among the most memorable.”
“Everyone at LBS is so open to the world...I’ve connected with people I’ll be friends with for life.”
