On Friday, we discussed going abroad for your MBA. If you are considering schools outside of the US, please be sure to check their deadlines and program options as some are different from the top American schools. Two examples of this are LBS and INSEAD.
INSEAD offers a program that begins in Jan 2008 in addition to their Sept 2008 start date. Each of their classes has about 450 students representing over 70 nationalities. About 300 students begin at their France campus and 150 start at the Singapore campus. Students can change campuses during their time at INSEAD. You can see all of the INSEAD deadlines here. If you are interested in starting in Jan 2008 program you can still apply by July 11. Don’t be discouraged that two deadlines for this start date have already passed. According to INSEAD, “competition for each round is relatively equal, so there is generally little advantage to be gained by early application.”
LBS also boasts a global student body with students from over 70 countries, faculty representing over 30 countries, and 25,000 alumni across 100 countries. Also interesting is that the LBS curriculum can be covered in 15 or 21 months for those of you seeking a flexible time frame. Their admissions details can be found here.
