    Applicants should have at least two years, full time, relevant work experience (the average for the current class is six years). The vast majority of successful applicants have worked directly in finance or finance-related areas.
    from the LBS website.

    yes.. i know.. I have read that !
    Will my placements be considered as full-time work experience ? Since it says 2 years minimum do you think I have a chance?

    Think your chances of success are nearing zero... the people who are at LBS have absolutely stellar employment records and in no way depend on placements, internships or the like to qualify. A lot of the people I've met from there have done 3 years of work on a graduate programme somewhere and are doing the Masters to do a slight career path switch or just develop a list of contacts while taking a brief bit of time out.

    You can pay (through the roof) to take some courses there which don't require much in the way of pre-requisites. There is an undergrad from UCL doing some of their corporate finance evening classes I think... may well be failing his degree as a result though.

    That masters is basically like doing an MBA in finance. You need work exp. Age average is 29/30.. .
    I mean LBS in general is another league and aim a different kind of public.

    You can still get into great masters in finance at Oxbridge / LSE / Imperial/ Warwick with that record, so it's no that bad.

    I will probably wait for 6 years and then apply for MBA in LBS.
