  • Posted by - meremortal - on 3 April 2014 - 6:18pm


    I am in 3rd year pursuing B.Tech Mechanical Engineering which will be completed by May 2015. I have some questions regarding selections in LSE MS in Management Program.

    Here is a brief about my CV
    Class X: 84%
    Class XII: 89.8%
    Current CGPA: 8.57/10

    President of a national technical society's chapter ISTE
    Finance Manager for a Robotics workshop and got a book published for the same workshop.
    Teacher in a social initiative called Teach for Vellore
    Internship in Tata Motors with specific focus on reducing lead time of manufacturing processes
    Co ordinator for 3 events in my college's international technical fest.

    1. How much should I score in GMAT?
    2. When does the R1 applications start?
    3. Does any prior experience in management related activities help?

      Hey Thomas,
      Hi,I'm Sourav. I am in bit of a situation out here. You see, I graduated from Engineering In the Year 2012 . I had a CGPA of 6.5/10. But due to some financial and family matter ,I was unable to study or work consequently. Without Work Experiences ,there's no way for MBA. So I was wondering if I could be eligible for MIM courses. I recently gave GMAT for the first time and scored 669 in it ... I have Ielts score of 7.5. Can i be eligible for any good MIM courses in Europe.

      Kindly help me regarding this matter... your help will be hugely i need to score High in Gmat?

      Hi there,

      the LSE has no minimum GMAT score they require for their MS in Management. I know, however, that most internationally accredited schools perceive 600 as such a minimum. Furthermore, the LSE MS in Management has an average GMAT score of 671. Hence, the closer you come to this score or the more you beat that score, the better.

      Prior experience in management does not hurt, except maybe for programs that explicitly target people with a non-business background.

      As for your second question, I recommend to contact LSE directly.

      Have you read my MIM eBook - The Complete Guide to Your Master in Management already?

      Best wishes
