London, United Kingdom
London Business School is for the candidates who are truly globally minded. In one of the largest and most bustling metropolitan cities in Europe, London pulses with world-class businesses new and old. Those who look forward to a career that is interested in global affairs should strongly consider LBS as their school to be. They are one of the few schools that has an additional language requirement outside of English! LBS has three terms throughout the year (Fall, Spring, and Summer). Taking less electives and completing the degree in 15 months can accelerate the program, but most students opt for the full 21 months because the program is so productive. The first year of study is amongst a cohort of 75 students with smaller study groups of 6 or 7 students. In the second year, students can choose from a wealth of electives. There is also an option to study abroad in the second year for one term, as LBS is partnered with over 30 schools around the world. Although LBS cannot promise that everyone will graduate having acquired a snazzy British accent, the program definitely promises an education of the highest caliber.   At Ivy, our MBA admissions consulting team can help you get accepted to London Business School.
