Hope you’re all well and keeping safe.
A message from the Masters in Finance (MiF) Recruitment and Admissions team here at LBS in light of COVID-19.
As a team we continue to be available to advise and support you throughout the MiF application process, and answer any questions you have about the application and the programme.
You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime or call us on 020 7000 7505 during office hours (Monday – Friday 09.00 – 17.00).
As always, if you are considering applying to the programme, our first advice is to submit your CV for review here. We will then schedule a telephone consultation to answer your queries and give you further information to support your application.
In terms of the application deadlines, these remain unchanged:
If you already have a GMAT/GRE score you should submit it with your application. If you had planned to retake the test as you feel your scores do not reflect your abilities, but are unable to do so, please let us know.
As a first step, you should reach out to us to establish whether you are eligible for a GMAT/GRE waiver – if you have not already done so. This will enable us to better assess your personal circumstances with regard to GMAT/GRE and advise you appropriately. You can do this by emailing email@example.com.
We will make a holistic assessment of your overall academic ability. Always, our aim is to ensure that you have the ability to do well on this intensive and challenging Programme. We may ask you to provide your degree transcripts and a statement detailing your quantitative skills and experience. In writing this statement, you are welcome to include academic and professional qualifications, employment experience and any other relevant information.
We continue to accept applications to the MiF Programme without a GMAT/GRE score, especially if you are unable to take a test in these very difficult times
GMAC and ETS, the providers of the GMAT and GRE tests, are regularly updating us about test centre availability. GMAC have stated that an interim online version of the GMAT should be available from mid-April. ETS tell us they will provide an interim online version of the GRE test in some affected countries soon, and that they are working to expand this to other countries. This means that if we cannot grant you a GMAT/GRE waiver, you may be able to complete the test online and submit your score to us during the application process if, for example, we call you for interview and then make a conditional offer.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and we wish you all the best!
