School Strategy

LBS are masters of the “hidden essay”. Buried in their application are smaller, inconspicuous essays with word limits varying from 100-300 words (!) asking about your family, international experience, and work experience. So don’t be deceived into thinking that you only have to plan for the 2 essays  shown on most LBS application essay tips websites.

Keep in mind that LBS uses British English in its questions (eg. organisation not organization). So, if you tend to switch between British and American English often, stick to British English here.
