      Hi there,

      have you read my MIM eBook already? I suggest that you do this first (and thoroughly). After this you know how you can find out about eligibility of schools such as the LBS.

      Best wishes

      Hi Thomas

      I am very keen on applying for the MiM programme at LBS and HEC.
      I graduated in 2014 from a private law school in India (top 25% of my class). Pursuant to that, I have been working with a top-tier law firm in India. I participated in many extra - curricular activities (mostly law related) and held multiple positions of responsibility. I will be giving my GMAT in September. I will have 1.5 years of work experience by the time I apply to these universities. If my application is successful, I plan on quitting and travelling the world. My main purpose of undertaking this programme is to pursue a career in marketing focussing on the luxury sector outside India.
      At this point, I have four queries - (a) are there chances of getting an acceptance from these universities (assuming I score a 680+ on my GMAT)?; (b) should I look at other universities or restrict my applications to these two universities?; (c) considering the tough job markets and multiple visa restrictions (especially for Indians), are there chances of getting a job in Europe after the programme?; and (d) can I apply and secure a job in countries apart from my home country and the country of your university after the programme - is this programme as widely recognised as a MBA (for eg. Australia or the U.S.)?
      Looking forward to your reply!

        Hi there,

        based on the information you have me, I would say: Yes, you have chances. The question, however, is: How good are your chances? You will compete with other students who belong to the top 10% or top 5% of their class, for instance.

        Some other thoughts:

        • "If my application is successful, I plan on quitting and travelling the world." - I wouldn't say this in your application :)
        • "pursue a career in marketing focussing on the luxury sector outside India" - Then why do you want to do a Master in General Management? Why not a Master in Luxury Management or Marketing?
        • "should I look at other universities"- Of course, you should. Doesn't make sense to place all your future goals on two elite universities.

        At this point, I recommend you to read thoroughly my MIM eBook. In your case, I recommend to read it even from the start to the end. Then you understand your alternatives to a MIM and to LBS and HEC; you also learn to calibrate the criteria you use when deciding for a school. I always receive comments here from students who apply for a program, get accepted and then ask em: Is this a good program? - Doesn't make a sensed to me. Learn everything about your education BEFORE you apply and then make the right decision. Again: Read my MIM eBook and feel free to come back if questions are still unanswered.

        • "are there chances of getting a job in Europe after the programme" - Of course there are chances to get a job. Ther questions are: In which of the 45 countries? In which industries? At which firm? In which function? Obviously your job success does not only depend on the job market(s) (Europe is not one single job market...) but also on the reputation, network, and career service of your school. Again: Read my MIM eBook to learn how you can find out how good your school is.

        • "is this programme as widely recognised as a MBA" - A pre-experience Master (and a "MIM" is nothing else than a Master) is not the same as an MBA. Neither the content nor the recognition nor the target positions after graduting. Read my MIM eBook to understand the differences or read this MBA - MIM differences article.

        Best wishes
