Frequently Asked Questions

What undergraduate degree should I have?
There is no particular preference. We welcome applications from arts, languages and philosophy graduates as well as those from the pure sciences, engineering, maths and the social sciences, including business and economics.
What GMAT score is acceptable?
You must ensure that your GMAT score is valid upon submitting your application. Our average GMAT score for the Class of MBA2021 was 701, with a class range of 600 to 800.

We will look at all elements of your score and although a good score is preferable, the GMAT is just one of several admissions criteria. Just as a high score does not guarantee admission, a below average score does not always eliminate a candidate. You should however note that 600 is the minimum score we will accept.

If you feel that you could improve your score, you are advised to retake the test to help make you a more competitive candidate. We accept the GRE, however, you should be aware that some employers may ask for a GMAT score.

Please note, you may be asked by the Admissions Committee to retake the GMAT before receiving an offer if they feel that your current score is too low.
Does my work experience need to be as a manager in a business?

No, your work experience does not necessarily need to include experience as a manager.

The Programme is suitable for people who come from technical backgrounds (for example, engineering or IT) as well as for people who have worked in finance or consultancy or run their own business. We also welcome applications from people who have worked in the public sector/government. Some of our students have less typical backgrounds, such as doctors, vets, an opera singer, a theatre director and even a NFL football player.

Do you count military service as work experience?
Yes, we believe that military experience is very valuable. We strongly encourage former military personnel onto our programmes, as they have proven leadership, interpersonal and team-building skills.
What is a typical programme participant like?
A key feature of the MBA is the stimulating and varied international participant mix. Each year approximately 10% of the class come from the UK, with the remaining 90% made up of participants from 60-70 different countries. Many of our participants come to London Business School with their partners and family.
