Why Do I Need Admissions Advice?
Getting into your desired masters in finance or management programme can be highly competitive. A quick look at the MSc. Finance programme at the London School of Economics (LSE) shows us that their admissions rate is only 6%, which is even lower than their BSc. Economics programme at 9%. You can expect caliber of candidates applying to business schools such as London Business School (LBS) to be exceptionally high, as most schools require or prefer applicants to have a minimum GMAT or GRE score, and emphasises on having quality work or internship experiences.
With this in mind, candidates need to utilise every advantage they can acquire for their postgraduate applications. It is insufficient for them just to have the right profile and work experiences – being able to demonstrate their uniqueness, competitive edge, and motivations through their CV and essay or personal statement is of utmost importance. Hence, receiving admissions advice will ensure that you carry the necessary elements of a successful candidate and can show them when you apply.
