London Business School

The London Business School, founded in 1964, is one of the most prestigious business schools in the world. In 2013, LBS was reported to have among the most wanted MBAs in the world by recruiters, comparable to those of Harvard, Stanford and Insead. LBS awards only post-graduate degrees (Masters, MBA, PhD and EMBA). The school’s main programme is its flexible 15–21 month Master of Business Administration degree.

London Business School has been ranked number one business school in Europe for four consecutive years by the Financial Times (FT). Our MBA has been ranked number two international MBA by Bloomberg Businessweek.

One of our seven Global Business Experiences takes place in Tel Aviv. We also have an active alumni club based in Tel Aviv and London which serves as the primary connection between the School and its alumni in Israel, providing opportunities for professional networking amongst its members.

We leverage our London location to create a unique set of experiences. The MBA London CAP (Core Application Practicum) helps you grow your network and add value by working with London organisations on real projects.

London gives us access to leaders of global organisations, who regularly come on campus to join faculty in the classroom, or speak at events, such as Student Club led industry and regional Conferences.

You will be joined on your MBA by 500 students from c70 nationalities and every career sector in a deeply immersive life-changing experience. You will also work alongside  students from other programmes, such as the more experienced Executive MBA and Sloan Masters students, who offer so much to classroom discussion and the learning community.

If you are not sure whether you want a one or two year programme, then the LBS MBA programme can fit either direction. You can exit the programme after 15 months if you wish to; perhaps to return to your sponsoring company, for family reasons, or to start a business. Or do as most students do and stay for as long as you can, to absorb all the amazing experiences and opportunities on offer for this once in a lifetime investment in yourself.

Hi! I'm planning on applying for 2023, and I have a 2-year-old son. Is it common for students at your schools to have kids?
Lina Ramos
6/09 08:41PM
Hi Inbar! The average work experience for our MBA class is 5.5 years but do accept a range, some students will have 3-4 year up to 10-11 years in some cases. It depends on your profile whether you're suitable for the class but you can reach out to our Recruitment team [email protected] so they can do an informal CV review
Hi Noam, We don't have GMAT/GRE waivers I'm afraid

Hi Shai, We have the right team of colleagues focus on Brexit. We don't see a particular danger. In fact we see coming to the UK as an advantage, with the introduction of the 2 year post-graduate visa, to attract the most talented people around the world which will allow you to stay in the UK working 2 years post graduation

Hi, do you have a breakout of the total cost of tuition and living expenses for the entire degree?
I saw students live in St John's Wood or Hapstead - this seems very expensive

Hi Gal, there are plenty of opportunities for entrepreneurs including the ESS (Entrepreneurship Summer School); The programme is uniquely packaged to take student would-be entrepreneurs through every stage of deciding whether to pursue an entrepreneurial career path, through to implementation of their aspirations and subsequently taking their business to the next level. From exploring entrepreneurship to creating and thereafter growing your business, the Entrepreneur's Journey programme is structured in a sequential order that is a perfect complement to your studies, providing a practical and informative workshop, speaker and panel sessions that enable you to pick and choose which events are right for you.

Lina, I saw there is the summer project - where students work on a venture. is this instead of an internership?
and one more question. can you explain how the program length I saw it says 15-21 months, but didnt understand how this is possible... thank you

Hi Dudu, cost of living expenses really vary according to student's preferences. It might be useful to connect with current student ambassadors so they can share their experience https://www.london.edu/masters-degrees/student-alumni-and-ambassadors#sort=%40profilesurname%20ascending. You don't necessarily have to live in those areas if they don't fit your budget
We're very centrally located so the options are endless!
Hi Ofir, Classes will be on campus in-person.
Hi Danielle, We do have students that come to the programme with kids, new born babies.. Here is a blog from one of our current students who had her baby just before the start of the programme https://admissionsblog.london.edu/what-is-it-like-doing-the-lbs-mba-as-a-parent/. I hope this helps!
