About The School
It is hard to imagine that until the mid 1980s, middle management from the Commonwealth had a free ride for their business education at LBS. It seems it was mostly French and U.S. students who bore the total cost. But just as London has become one of the world’s great cities, so the London Business School has transformed into one of the world’s finest business schools. And tuition for the 2-year MBA program – an exception in the European market – has been transformed too!
A top flight center of teaching and research, the school’s MBA program often ranks #1 in Europe, and is seen as the international alternative to the finance-focused business schools of the US. Blue-chip firms from consultancy to finance to industry fight to recruit 400 graduates every year, for placement in positions not only in the UK and Europe, but also in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
The culture and economy of London are at the heart of the LBS experience, and the student body reflects such a cosmopolitan city with over 65 nationalities in the MBA classroom.
