365体育投注Executive MBA: How to submit a strong application
The Recruitment and Admissions Teams speak about the Executive MBA application process and what makes an exceptional candidate.
What to expect following your application
An initial decision will be made on your application upon its completion. If successful, you will be shortlisted for an interview. All interviews are conducted on campus at London Business School with a member of the admissions team. The final decision on your application will then be considered by the Admissions Committee, taking into account the feedback from your application and interview.
365体育投注The decision made by the Admissions Committee may be:
1. Offer – The exceptional merits of your application and interview mean LBS would like to offer you a place to join the EMBA programme
2. Waitlist – LBS is not prepared to make an offer at this stage but remain open to gathering more information concerning your candidacy given the strengths of your application
3. Reject – Your application will come to an end for this year but the option to apply in the subsequent admission cycle is available.
If your application is not successful, please review the admissions criteria against your application and ensure that your experience and objectives are aligned with the admissions criteria. Remember that competition for places is high, and consequently we are not able to offer places to a number of entirely suitable candidates.

Brett Hunter, Leadership Programmes Admissions Director at London Business School, shares his advice on applying to the Executive MBA.
365体育投注Executive MBA students normally have an undergraduate degree from a recognised university. However, we do occasionally consider non-graduate candidates. We would expect such candidates to have alternative professional qualifications and/or outstanding work experience.
We would also look at the GMAT or Executive Assessment more closely as an indicator of academic ability. Find out more on the GMAT website.
There is no minimum score requirement. The GMAT is just one of several pieces of information used by the School to assess a candidate's suitability, and just as a high score does not guarantee admission, a lower score does not eliminate a candidate.
365体育投注In making an admissions decision, we consider all aspects of a candidate's background, knowledge and experience as demonstrated throughout the application process. If you are concerned about your test score, please contact a member of the admissions team at email@example.com or telephone +44 (0)20 7000 7512 (UK) or +971 440 193 01 (Dubai).
365体育投注Only applicants with exceptional work experience and academic performance will be considered for a waiver and all requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Please note that decisions will be made using a holistic approach. If you feel you are suitable for a waiver please email the EMBA London or EMBA Dubai Recruitment Team with a copy of your CV and the reason why you feel you meet the waiver eligibility criteria.
Applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will be reviewed by the Admissions Team. We will then let you know within 7 working days whether your request has been successful.
Our GMAT reporting codes are Z11-J7-23 for London and Z11-J7-36 for Dubai.
All applicants whose native language is not English must take the TOEFL or IELTS, unless they have received a degree from an institution where English was the language of instruction, or have lived or worked in an English-speaking environment for a minimum of two years.
You cannot apply to more than one Masters programme at London Business School or our partner Schools at the same time, or in the same academic year. You cannot re-apply to the same programme within the same academic year.
