Today we look at London Business School’s deadlines for the 2010-2011 admissions season.
Here are the deadlines, followed by our comments in italics:
London Business School Application Deadlines
Round 1: October 6, 2010
Round 2: January 5, 2011
Round 3: March 2, 2011
Round 4: April 20, 2011
Note that LBS has left its deadlines virtually unchanged vs. last year. Among top MBA programs, LBS has one of the longer admissions cycles, accepting applications for nearly seven months out of the year. Although the school has four rounds of deadlines (vs. the more normal three), we still advise that you aim for Round 1 or Round 2. Great applicants can certainly still get into LBS in the last two rounds, but if you’re ready, there’s no reason to wait and risk finding yourself in a situation where London Business School simply doesn’t have enough open seats to accommodate you.

Considering school in Europe? How about London Business School? It currently sits ranked at number four in The Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive’s International ranking. Check out what they have to say about LBS here.
The London Business School boasts one of, if not the most, internationally diverse campuses in the world; an astounding 91% of the school’s population comes from overseas. LBS strives to establish connections with business firms in many countries, which is especially beneficial to their diverse student base. What’s more, it’s obvious that these connections are serving the students well; LBS claims that 96% of their graduates accept a job offer within three months of graduation.
