London Business School

LBS Program Overview
The mission of the London Business School is to identify the needs of business leaders in a constantly changing world and equip them with the skills and savvy to thrive in an increasingly global market. As one of only two business schools in the United Kingdom that has twice earned the highest five-star rating by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, LBS is one of the preeminent business schools in Europe and the world.

One of the most common options at LBS is the standard two-year international general management program, although there is an accelerated program that takes one semester fewer. LBS also offers a masters in finance, which takes 10 months full-time or 21 months part-time to complete.

With more than 85% of students hailing from outside of the United Kingdom, an LBS education is an incredibly diverse experience. Only about 20% of recent students were American, while 24% came from Asia and 27% were from other European countries

An additional advantage LBS boasts is its location in one of the world’s capitals of business. London provides unparalleled access to top European companies, and qualified students will have a wealth of options for nearby summer internships. LBS is the only top-10 business school in the United Kingdom, its closest top-tier competitor being INSEAD in France.
