At LBS, the MiF and MBA students are taught their core courses separately, but the courses are broadly the same. The students often study side by side in electives. The LBS MBA is certainly the best in the UK for IB because the finance core courses are so extensive. The difference is that MBAs will go into more senior roles and are able to benefit more fully from internship opportunities. It sounds like their MBA is a better option for you.

Whats is your opinion about INSEAD? Is it better than LBS? Do you know if INSEAD have a strong focus in finance and good placemnet opportunities after graduation?

Another european business school with recognized standing in finance?

Than you.

Insead's a great school to accelerate the careers of investment banking professionals. If you are not already in IB, LBS is better. LBS alums get higher salaries, I believe.

For the MBA programs? Indeed: The FT data says that LBS grads are at $178k on average, and INSEAD grads are at $148k; although there are PPP caveats, etc.
