LSE's masters programmes vs. MBA from another school


robull34h

It looks like LSE offers the Global TRIUM MBA but no "regular" MBA for those with working experience but not at the senior management or executive level.

Despite the fact that I would love to attend school there since it is a school that we in the US hear great things about, as well as the usual LBS, Cambridge, and Oxford programs. In review of the other masters programmes they offer, I notice that they are all MSc. Does that mean that those programs are just for those with minimal or no experience? Will the school take someone with solid work experience (is it even a good fit)? or should I be looking at going to school elsewhere for a "regular" MBA?

:) Hi,

I am having a four years of managerial experience. I was in the same dilemma. Whether to opt for LSE-MSc or other MBAs? LSE does not offer full-time MBA.

After a lot of research, feedback and guidance, I applied for MSc-ADMIS (Info. sys. Mgmt.) course at LSE (run by Department of Management) and got through it.
So...yes, LSE accepts the people with Work-Ex for their programs.

Considering the amazing reputation of LSE, employment chances will be much higher and it is a brand-name that will stay with you forever.

Best of luck for your application. May I know which course are you interested in at LSE?

I understand your concern...in MBA the learning from fellow classmates is in equal amount as from lecturer to students...it is for this reason B Schools fix work ex criteria for admission so that you can contribute rather than only absorb...higher the avg work ex of the class better the learning experience.

but if you are doing Trium-MBA you need not be concerned regarding the MSc degrees that LSE offers...cz you wont be mixed in a class room hence your application will be judged on a different parameter.

On a personal note you will face quite a culture shock since LSE is not a B School and the way they teach is quite different...very theoretical unlike the case study methodology adopted by most of the top b schools...but once you come down to Houghton Street, every single speck of doubt will fade away...LSE is one of the best educational establishment in England!!

All the best!!:)
