Hello ...LBS_Admit ....I know you must be congratulated from all around many times by many......which you truly deserve...but here is one more applaud to add to your achievement .......
Well iam a young aspiring CA student ...I have just cleared my CA-IPCC (inter) and now doing articleship from a small midsize firm(which is not that big) and also doing B.com graduation side by side.........
...I always wanted to go for LBS after being a CA ....
So my question to you is that whether doing articleship from small firm matters if we show high credential with our CA-Final marks and then after being a CA working for 2-3 years in a good company....and then going for GMAT Exam ???
Do they count Articleship training also ...I mean do they value it much ...or post experience after being a CA is what matters ??
What are their criteria with CA students???

Hello All,

I see very few LBS admits compared to other UK business schools such as Judge, Said, Cranfield, Manchester etc. on this forum.

I guess LBS has increased its level in terms of admisson criteria. All your comments/views are welcome as this will help the further round applicants to put in even strong applications.

Thanks and looking forward to your views

That's strange but actually quiet possible. In US the number of applicants increase during recession but in India its the opposite! Will it mean less competition for Indian students this year or it means lesser representation from India to these schools
