Hello everyone, I am currently in my last year of Bsc and want to apply to business schools this fall. My favorite option so far (I've been researching for a while) is LSE's MSc in Accounting and Finance, although I don't know if my profile is good enough to get accepted there. I will try to summarize:
-Double degree in Law and Business Administration from a little uni in Spain. GPA not very stellar, 7.5/10. Law subjects made my average score drop quite a bit, as I've got rather high grades on business-related ones.
-Also doing a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and Public Management. It is a side study for me, and I do it just because I'm really into politics.
-Exchange of one semester in Seoul (South Korea) with really good grades
-Summer internships in a local industrial company (administration) and in a hedge fund (real estate and securities ) in Madrid. I'll probably get a better one for this course's second semester, maybe Big4 or Banks, but it won't be in time for the application process.
-GMAT 730 (48Q,42V)
-Cambridge Proficiency in English with Grade A
My strategy is to sell that I am a well-rounded student with background in law that has recently found in finance its passion, and thus I need a Msc to specialize. And what a better place than LSE.
I have also looked into RSM and IE, in case I don't get the admission. The latter would be the obvious choice, as I'm Spanish and probably will be living in Madrid, but the high tuition fees are a huge downside. I would be more than happy to pay 50k euros to be one year in London at LSE, but I don't know if the difference between RSM's 2k and IE's 37k tuition fee is really worth it.
Thanks in advance for the help, it will be much appreciated
