For the first hand experience, I think you are better to know how it is at each business school that you have mentioned. Because the Master in Management course covers a large business area like finance, consulting, marketing, entrepreneurship etc. It's good if you go through the most basic details from each name you mentioned as comparing them is not ideal.

London Business School (LBS) MIM:

  • It is a 12-16 months course
  • The prominent thing here is its involvement with the industry. In particular, your skills will be  industry oriented in LBS MIM
  • LBS MIM is ranked #3 worldwide (Financial Times)

London School of Economics (LSE) MIM:

  • It is a 12-months full-time course
  • The basic elements of LSE MIM are skill based

All of the mentioned schools are top providers of MIM courses. In general, LBS, HEC Paris and ESCP are the best ones to target overall. However, no matter which one  you choose, you’re good. All of these b-schools are recognized and have high degree value. I hope this helps you to decide which one suits you. In case you want any more information, just let me know.
