CHICAGO BOOTH UK EMBA VS LBS EMBA VS INSEAD

Hi all,

I've applied to Booth UK EMBA and planning to apply to the LBS EMBA program. Post EMBA My main goal is to start my own shop specializing in offering financial services in the UK.

1) I'm really confused if I should pick Booth UK over LBS given booth UK is fairly new and if I want to really develop a strong network, which school will benefit me the most? My goal is to build a strong network and also participate in VC funds/ clubs/ associations. Now, Booth UK being fairly new has small number of alumni students as compared to LBS..will this affect my chances of building a really strong network?

2) Secondly, Ive finished all the rounds of interviews with Booth Uk and might get an admit letter in 2 weeks, classes start from September.. with LBS EMBA I'm yet to find out if they've Jan/Feb 2022 intake option available. If they don't ill waste 1 year as booth starts in Sept 2021. I will have to wait for 1 more year just to apply to LBS EMBA September 2022 intake

Is it worth the wait?
Any guidance/help is highly appreciated ?

What do you mean, when you say the Booth EMBA is new? Booth invented the EMBA. Their European EMBA programme has been running since the last century.

Right. As compared to LBS EMBA, Booth UK alumni will be fairly smaller right? In terms of building a strong network and making connections - wouldn't LBS EMBA give me more accessibility there?

Chicago Booth, and UChicago as a whole, certainly have fewer alumni in London than LBS.
