So I am considering an EMBA from these three places. LBS is by far the best of the lot. However their costs are high and the next intake is only in Sep. So I am now looking at the other two. I am a co-founder of a small company in the telecom & technology space. I am keen to know which of these two will offer me the best environment for: Course curriculum relevant to an innovations & technology led entrepreneurial environment, superior alumni network and global recognition & prestige attached to the school. A lot of our company's work is in Asia and Africa where we sell our solutions, so having a name that is recognizable is considered an advantage in those places. So nett nett my question is: Which of these two will give an edge from a Global perspective not just UK/Europe point of view.
CASS vs Imperial vs LBS
I am aware of the Jan intake for LBS. But given that I have not yet taken the GMAT and their sessions starts mid Jan, I thought it would be next to impossible to consider an admission possibility on such short notice. I spoke to them late Nov and they said that they would freeze the class latest by mid Dec.
LBS is qualitatively better: the difference in fees is nothing compared to the outcomes. Cass is a great programme but he school is small and doesn't have a great network in Asia or Africa. Imperial has a great brand in the Commonwealh countries because of its undergraduate engineering expertise but the EMBA is pretty lightweight. If you really object to LBS then Chicago, WHU-Kellog and Insead are the only other global programmes in Europe.
Thanks Duncan. That helps a lot. I'll chew on that and do some more research before I head back to clarify any further doubts I may have. Appreciate your time.
Muzri: seriously? So he should rule out Chicago, LBS, Cass and Insead in order to attend an MBA programme with lower quality students who graduate onto lower salaries? And why exactly should we do that?
So Duncan- Got an admission offer from Cass. Waiting on Imperial. Won't make the Jan start for LBS given that it starts only a few weeks from now. Should I take up Cass or wait and try my luck with LBS for their Sep intake? What would your advice be? Merry Christmas btw :)
