    Check with their admissions pages, but I think at least, you'd need to do a one year diploma first - and even then, there's no guarentee.

    Do you guys think that it is doable for a student who is not in finance but in politics like me.I'm considering a career in IB but I'm doing a BA in politics and american studies at nottingham uni next september.

    I'm willing to prepare myself for a long time if i have to review the maths knowledge etc...

    I'd like to do a masters in finance if i can at either lse , oxford, cambridge , bocconi or insead-->no others!

    Can we take it several times ?

    Thanks
    Hey
    Man you're French so you know about the French business schools. Insead is good but why not one of the "Big 4" (no not the accountancy firms :p:) : HEC, ESSEC, ESCP-EAP or EM Lyon ? Bocconi and Insead are below the level of the other 3 you mentioned, way below.

    Johan,
    You would be surprised of seing what an incredible reputation ISEAD fontainebleau has. The thing is, it has absolutely no reputation among french students because students at INSEAD are intern at 95% and it only do an MBA post experience (far from the bac+5 structure). Bocconi has also a very very good rep because of its wonderful MBA (better than HEC's). For pre experience level, HEC ESSEC and ESCP are better though.

    Ok then, I guess we just don't assess the level of Insead correctly... my mistake. For Bocconi, you're right, I'm biased by a few league tables but which didn't apply to this degree.

    Of course not - no criticism whatsoever intended.

    Do you have any opinions on how difficult it will be to get a good GMAT/GRE score? Cheers.
