Submitting a strong application for the Early Careers programmes

As we approach the next application deadline, we wanted to share some tips on how to best position yourself to submit a strong application.

Plan, Research, Connect, Submit

Your first step is to gain a thorough understanding of your preferred Masters programme. You can develop this by:

  • visiting our website
  • download the brochure
  • get in-depth understanding of our faculty by researching their profiles
  • read the our Student and Admissions blogs
  • connect with our Student Ambassadors & Alumni who are always happy to share their LBS journey.

Your next step is to attend the events we host on a regular basis. The information gained here will help you understand the School, the programme and the LBS culture, it’ll also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have.

If you are interested in the MAM or MFA programmes you can also follow this by submitting your profile to us, the student recruitment team. The team offer guidance on your profile and offer a 1:1 consultation where we establish our mutual relationship and greater understanding of the application process.

Your application

Essay – Convey your passion, motivations and drive for studying your chosen programme at LBS. Tell us how the LBS learning and being part of this diverse, global community will develop you to achieve your ambitions and career goals. Be honest, be enthusiastic, be confident. Show us your personality.

GMAT/GRE – We do not have a preference between the two. My advice is to secure a GMAT of 690+ or a GRE with 160 in both sections. View this as a longer-term investment and not just as entry into the Business School.

References – 2 academic or 1 academic and 1 professional. We reach out to them and secure your references. Ensure they understand your vision for this programme.

Academic Transcripts – These should be in English.

You’re ready to submit.  Ensure you submit everything together so the Admissions team can complete the full review and move forward. We have 5 application deadlines for our September 2021 intake. My advice is to submit early if possible as competition remains high at all times.

For more detailed information, you can watch our recent webinar.

The dynamic culture and economy of London are at the heart of the LBS experience, and remember that global is not just a word, it’s the culture.

Good luck with your application!
