MBB: Starting your career in London

Italian guy looking to break into management consulting and targeting M/B/B to start my career. All three firms have offices in Milan, but I'd rather start my career elsewhere, possibly London or UAE. While Dubai seems feasible for an Italian that comes from a target uni, I heard that London offices almost exclusively recruit native speakers from Oxbridge. Since I'm considering attending a masters in the UK, I'd like to have some insight on this in order to take a more informed decision

It's mostly Oxbridge and then a mix of UCL/LSE/Imperial. Lots of internationals of which a decent chunk not native speakers.

Thanks for your reply. What about LBS Master in Management? They place great in Italy and UAE, unsure about London

Only the LBS MBA for MBB

Agreed with above based on personal anecdote of friend doing MiM @LBS aiming for MBB... with an MBA is more likely.
