I will be careful saroo.. thanks for the concern.
ezra thanks for the reply I have been to malaysia before and seen that local universities have no importance there except malaya. All the students are looking for international programs especially looking at the Profile university of wollogong 275 in times ranks even better in qs with unique and international programs.The accredation you are talking about is not reliable because harvard is not included in any of the accredations?

Well, yes, but there's a difference between popularity and which grads actually get hired, and it's clear that MBA programs with international accreditation are much more successful in this sense than those that aren't.

And yes, Harvard is accredited by AACSB. It seems like you should probably do a bit of reading about international accreditations. Duncan's post is worth a read:

Hi All,

I am thinking of doing an MBA from Westminster International College which is accredited by Cardiff Metropolitan University. I wanted to know if it is a good choice or not. And i also wanted to know how hard is it to get a job in Malaysia after that.

Thanks in advance!

The University of Nottingham campus in Malaysia is not a terrible choice, better than Cardiff Met.

Cardiff Met isn't accredited by AMBA or EQUIS or AACSB, and so its programs will not have been rigorously analyzed by an external body. Likewise, it won't have the same network as a school like Nottingham. Strathclyde also offers a part-time program.

But if you're looking at landing a job in Malaysia after graduation, why not consider the internationally-accredited MBA programs offered by local schools there? Putra and Malaya have excellent networks among businesses in the country.

I am an international student and Westminster International college - London of Commerce is associated with Cardiff Metropolitan University ranked for 2015 number of 67.

Thank you to advise if I should go for it as international student … $6,500

I suggest people reply to you at http://find-mba.com/board/uk-ireland/mba-cardiff-university-11574?latest=true where you have raised the same point.

PS In which ranking is Cardiff Metropolitan University ranked #67? First, that's really not a very good ranking -- there are only around 100 universities in the UK. Second, I struggle to think that its MBA is in any ranking at all.

Hello,

After a PhD in biology and several years (4) of work experience in business related to the environment i want to start a MBA. I plan to work and live in Malaysia therefore my choice for an MBA there. However I'm afraid that the MBAs offered there will be too local with a very low international crowd.

Does anybody have some experience regarding the MBA in Malaysia?

I'm mostly interested to study in Kuala Lumpur at one of the three institutions below
- Universiti Malaya - University of Malaya
- Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) - IBS
- UCSI University Malaysia

Any idea of their respective alumni network?

Thank you for your help!

Yes, all Malaysian business schools will generally cater to students from Malaysia, versus schools like NUS in Singapore or HKUST in Hong Kong, which will attract a much more diverse class.

But if you plan on working in Malaysia, that's not a bad thing. You'll meet people and make connections that will help you along in your career.

Universiti Malaya has AMBA and AACSB accreditations, which would probably open up your network on a more international level. Also look at the other internationally-accredited school in the country: Putra Business School.

The University of Nottingham campus in Malaysia might be worthwhile. Since it is free from the state university quota system the quality of the cohort could be more consistent.
