    I'll be very honest here and talk from own experience. I found Masters to be relatively pointless for getting jobs in the U.K. Most entry-level positions are for graduates and they usually don't require a Masters are a pre-requisite. In such a case, you're better off applying straight out of undergrad.

    Having said that, your situation is different. I'm assuming you did your Undergraduate degree in India. In which case, transitioning or getting on to the Graduate Scheme is near impossible, unless you've been to IIT. In such a case, a postgraduate degree would be the right path. With the majority of Masters in the U.K. being 9-12 months, I honestly don't think the LSE Masters can be justified with its two year duration. Not only will you need to live in London during that period, the tuition fees are exorbitantly high, which I don't feel is a smart strategy. With some MBAs being relatively shorter in time and far cheaper, you'll not only have a better return on investment but your job prospects will still be good.

    Have you considered at cheaper Masters, e.g. Durham Business School, Royal Holloway or even Lancaster? I'd even consider looking at doing your MBA at a place like Durham or Royal Holloway. They're definitely not top Business Schools but they'll help you get good entry-level jobs, from where you can prove your worth and transition to a better position.
