Manchester business school, strathclyde or bradford


Hi everyone

I’ve more than 7 years of experience in multinational pharmaceutical companies in the sales and marketing departments. I think that’s now is the time to pursue my MBA for both my personal and professional career. I’m based in Dubai and preferably wants something that has a Dubai based campus. I want a triple accredited university. I’ve shortlisted MBA, strathclyde and bradford. All of them offer a good and decent programs but vary in the reputation and the financials which is important as it’ll be self funded program, so any advice please

Aside from generally develop myself in terms of better understanding of the business and how big companies are managed. I’m so interested in the marketing major. One thing I do like about bradford is the digital and health informarics, although I don’t see it’s ranking in the top universities unlike manchester for example

If you have no specific career goals, then try to visit classes and see where you fit the cohort.

thanks so much, my career goal is to go up in my career level which will mainly be achieved by the skills and development I’ll get from the MBA.
MBS is 1.5x more expensive than Bradford and strathclyde as well so my question is that is it worth ?
and if I’m to compare between strathclyde and Bradford which will be better in terms of being recognized as a good program.
I didn’t find much difference in the cohort in both tbh
thanks

Any MBA will help you move up. The AMBS Global MBA is well discussed on this site as a uniquely extensive part-time MBA, very close to the full-time degree. I'm not sure which MBA formats at Bradford or Strathclyde you are considering. AMBS is obviously a higher-ranked school with, in most countries, more senior, and simply more, alumni than the other two schools. However, if you are not targeting the sort of employers where AMBS has a better network, then perhaps a less good schools is enough.

Thanks so much, both strathclyde and Bradford offer exexutive & online MBA. I’m mainly talking here about the executive one
- Bradford has a plus in terms of the variety of electives and low fees
- AMBS has a plus in terms of ranking and reputation
- Strathclyde I think is in between

I don’t know if the ranking/ reputation difference between bradford and Manchester is worth to be 1.5x higher in price or not

thanks again

The additional value of a better school is almost always much greater than the additional cost. 
If you are targeting traditional MBA employers, who will see AMBS as being a better school, then it's a great investment. However, if you are more focussed on the firms that partner with Bradford and Strathclyde then you will be fine with them.
