London Business School (LBS) is welcoming new and returning students to its London and Dubai campuses for the start of the 2022/23 academic year.
More than 1,378* new students representing more than 106 nationalities have joined the LBS community in the last few weeks, with more joining over the coming 12 months.
Many students, particularly from our MBA, MiF and EMBA programmes, bring with them a wide spectrum of work experience, from sectors comprising sports, consulting, energy, finance, healthcare, the military and social impact sectors. Just some of the interesting and varied backgrounds joining us this year are:
Highlights from this year’s incoming classes to date** include:
Arnold Longboy, Executive Director Recruitment and Admissions says, “The uptake for our programmes this year has remained reassuringly strong, despite a decline in applications across the sector, attributed in part to high employment levels in the USA and the UK. We are particularly proud to note that women on London Business School’s Masters in Management and Masters in Analytics and Management programmes are well represented, with 54% and 53% of students respectively who are women.”
“We are also pleased to see that, since the easing of travel restrictions, our Executive programmes are accessible to an ever-growing number of commuters, up year-on-year from 36% to 48% on our London campus, and from 45% to 60% in Dubai,” he added.
