Oversea MBA program in Malaysia


YJLow

Hi, I have decided to start my part time MBA this year in Malaysia , after working for 10 years and currently would like to learn new skills (especially people management, marketing, strategy) for better career advancement, I would like to get my mba from prestigious university, preferably oversea cert ,as I already hold 2 certs from UKM (Bachelor degree in nutrition and post grad dip in dietetics).

after attended Strathclyde mba preview, after giving few thoughts about it, I still cant make up my mind which uni should I choose.
for me the cons for Strathclyde would be, their ranking in FT MBA is slipping these few year, almost drop out of 100, the latest is 98, and overall ranking also not high (401-500th according THE), I understand we should look at MBA ranking instead of overall, but by paying big amount RM73k, I will really look into value for money.

Most famous business school actually have one accreditation, not sure is it because Strathclyde is 2nd tier uni (according to ranking) therefore recognition means a lot for them (triple accreditation).

if we look at best university for business degree according to THE, even University Malaya (UM) rank better compared to Strathclyde, rank 301-350th in THE best university, accredited with AMBA, UM MBA only cost 28k, so I really don't see a reason to pay such high price of 73k to study MBA in Strathclyde.

since my main objective is to get oversea MBA degree, my budget max will be around 70k, other options would be Lancaster, and Nottingham, which I see they rank top 100 in business study, and I also wonder whether Monash offer MBA as I didn't see it in their website. so far in my mind, I will think that Nottingham and monash will be a good choice, in terms of value for money.

hope to get more opinion from anyone who did MBA before, thanks in advance!

It's a bit simplistic to say the most famous business schools have single accreditation: almost all the top business schools outside the USA have dual or triple accreditation. In terms of UK schools, you have to go a long way down the MBA pile before you come to a single-accredited school.

All the schools you mention will meet your need for a strong, well-rounded MBA locally, other than Monash: it does not teach its MBA at the campus in Malaysia. Your other criterion seems to be the prestige of the parent university. In that respect, Nottingham stands well above Lancaster and Strathclyde.
