Hi,
In Dubai I have been admitted in Strathclyde EMBA ,Bradford EMBA and Warwick Distance learning program and i am really in conflict
Strathclyde has good ranking but the program is very strict in terms of attendance ,there are local sessions every week end in addition to the main session which is 1 week end per month and i travel a lot and do not spend each week end in Dubai so i will lose some local sessions which can bring me down
Also the selective modules are only two
For Bradford the content is fine three days per month but the university is not anymore in top 100 and i see its reputation is not well as before so many people prefer strath

For Warwick distance learning mba it is considered the second ranking in the whole world in online mba but i need help trying to assess if the online idea of studying everything with no face to face modules except two times per year where you travel to UK for total of 8 days to do face to face workshops is enough and will enrich your experience
Also warwick is more strong than strath and more ranked but the mba takes at least 3 years and needs a lot of self work as well
Can you please help ?
thanks

I don't know your goals but I think I would choose Bradford. The advantages of face to face education are numerous. Strathclyde would be better. If a triple-crown executive MBA is an option, I would really not recommend a distance learning degree.

My aim is to learn management especially strategy to move to strstegy management job in same career
i have no slalary raise concerns
So you prefer strath over Bradford is there a reason for that both are triple accredited
do u think I go for strath and miss some local sessions while maintain the professor sessions which are main ones ?
Also do u think that warwick will win with its higher rankings later when i finish mba with its two times per year f2f workshops and one f2f subject studying can do the job
Thanks for helping

I am not sure if any of these will help you move into a strategy or strategy management role; a full-time programme will be better for that.

Strathclyde is a better school on most measurable indexes, but they are both strong. Visit classes and compare the students. They need to know in advance about the realistic attendance, and then the two of you can make an honest choice about whether there is a good fit.

Hi Duncan
do u know if warwick is really so different and more respectable and well known than strath to go for the online option
Also do u know if Bradford is not well known cause it is now out of top 100 so that i go for Bradford which suits my time well

I think you can answer these questions yourself. People who hire MBAs are quite aware of the schools: they don't forget Bradford because it falls a few places, and the reality is that it is one of very few triple crown programmes in the middle east. Warwick is a great programme, but you will learn more and have a better experience in a traditional on-campus programme.

Hi Duncan,
I have decided to raise my budget a bit and applied for Manchester Business School part -time MBA in Dubai
Its timing is very good for me and ranking is better than Strath and Bradford also more F2F engagements makes it more appealing than Warwick Business School Online MBA
I need your advise since you were a graduate of MBS do u think my choice is good over Warwick /Strath and Bradford?
thanks a lot

I think that's hard. An executive programme like Bradford may have a more senior cohort than a part-time MBA like Manchester or Strathclyde. I guess it depends on how you balance up your priorities.

Strathclyde and Bradford name their programs executive however average size of people is in 20th and there is no executive feel
The part time in Manchester involves 16 f2f days in first year of workshops send 21 days in second year but they call it part time since it is modular not held on week ends like strath and Bradford
What are your thoughts
