    Hello

    I wonder if there is anyone applying for the above mentioned program of Imperial business school.

    I've just submitted an application and not quite sure how long it will take to get notified whether I'd be selected for an interview. Also if you don't mind I'd just like to ask that between LSE and Imperial business school which one is harder to get accepted please.

    Thanks a lot

    Hello. LSE is harder to get into BUT considering your course, I think Imperial will suit you better. It's less theory based/a more practical way of teaching.

    I received my interview invite 3 weeks after my application for the MSc Management course, and got my offer about 6 weeks after I applied.

    Hello

    I've already received offer from LSE 2 weeks ago (MSC Economics and Management) after several months of painful waiting. I submitted another application to Imperial earlier this month for similar program. Anyway I'm thinking of going for LSE as I'm not quite sure I'll be able to make it for Imperial.

    Hello Ash
    If i remember correctly the interview consisted of 7 questions.
    1. What are your short run and long run goals?
    2. You are the leader of a team. If the team gets demotivated how do you react?
    3. How do your short term goals align with your future aspirations?
    4. How do your extra curricular activities help you achieve your ambitions!?
    5. If the price of coffee has a vertical demand what happens if we increase the price?
    I dont quite remember the rest since they were quantitative questions. Basically the main tip that i can provide is time management. You only have one minute to develop your answer and reach a conclusion so managing your time efficiently is really important. Otherwise, the computer cuts you off before you finish.
    Hope this helps

    Could you please let me know how the quantitative questions were structured? Did you answer them by describing them while being recorded or they were multiple questions format?
    Thanks

    Hello Ash
    The questions were in sentence format not multiple choice. The computer provided you a scenario and you had to calculate for example the average of certain variables. So basically when answering you had to describe how you derived the answer. I dont think you need to worry about the quant questions they were relatively easy and required minimum background knowledge. I think the most difficult questions are the economics oriented.

    Just applied to Msc Economics & Strategy for Business (ESB) yesterday. Will I stand a chance by having 1 year working experience working at Indonesia Stock Exchange, 3 months internship at Deloitte, and 1 month intern as investment analyst at one of the biggest cement company in Asia?

    Do they really spend 6-8 weeks to process the application?

    Hello Petapon 123
    Your work experience is quite impressive. However work experience is not the only factor, grades and extracurricular activities are as important. You certainly stand a chance but your application was submitted quite late so there is a chance that most positions have already been filled up which decreases your chances of admission. From my experience the processing time of the application was around 7 weeks from submission until i received my offer.
    Hope this helps.

    Received an email with "Offer from Business School" as subject containing a congratulatory statement, but said that i have to wait for approximately 3 weeks for official offer detailing the condition of my offer. What does it mean actually? Is it conditional offer?
