MSc Supply Chain Cranfield School Of Management Vs Aston MBA in operations


Hey, I got an offer from Cranfield School of Management for their MSc in Supply Chain and Logistics, But a bit confused about the jobs prospects in the UK for international students in the SCM role. I have worked ex of 3 years in India and I do have an offer from Aston Business school for their MBA. My ultimate goal for my master's is to learn my core subject more than managerial skills.

An MSc in SCM like Cranfield or Manchester will be better for specialised insight than a general management degree like an MBA.

Thanks for your time and response Duncan. Yes, I do have offers from both the colleges Cranfield and Manchester. And I am toward making my final decision and Cranfield is my first preference. 
Secondly, I am a bit confused overdoing an MBA or MSc as I already have work ex of 3.5 years in junior management moreover, how do you review Aston MBA?
Lastly, should I gain more insight into the industry and opt for any MBA or advanced master's course later and my experience will help me land a job middle level job after MSc.

As I wrote, the MSc will be better for your goal than an MBA from a worse school.

I also got an offer from Alliance business school and was confused about which school to select from Cranfield and AMBS?

Hello Duncan,
After a lot of research, I narrowed down my goals and made my move to apply for MSc in Supply now I have offers from Alliance Business school, Bayess Business school and Cranfield SOM but I am a bit confused about the reputation in the employers and recruiters' mind.
