Help Needed: Selecting Schools


HI there, All,

I am Abhishek from INDIA, i have offers from Leicester & Durham Online-MBA program.
However i will be unable to attend the Durham without a scholarship, as they are closed for scholarships now.
Hows Leicester Online-MBA ? I have seen that It has got AMBA and CMI accreditions, and its also fits in my budget.
I am also looking forward to Nottingham-Trent University as it has also got Triple accreditions at 14.2 K Pounds.

Please advice if I should wait for 1-year for Durham-MBA (and apply for scholarships) or either go with Nottingham-Trent or Leicester online-MBA ?

I dint understand Duncan ! Obviously My goal is career progression but i am also facing problems with high school fees and funding. Can you suggest something ?

I am really interested for Durham but cant see any financial institutions funding me sooner. Are other online-MBA worth it such as Leicester, Nottingham Trent, Bradford ?

There are different kinds of career progression, and different contexts. Different MBAs will work better or worse in different contexts. And there are alternatives to MBAs: graduate diplomas etc. So, depending on whether you want to change role, industry, country, function etc... These programmes might or might not suit you. Sorry, I can't be more helpful.

Thank You very much !
" Sorry, I can't be more helpful " -- Not very encouraging response.

Your responses are too generic and is something which i already knew before posting here for help.

My goals is to change role and move into full-time managerial role in my current industry -- Energy Sector. I have 6 years of grossly technical experience and since last 2 years i have been working with senior and top-management. Now i want an MBA to permanently transition from technical to techno-managerial role and become Head-of-business. A good MBA can supplement my technical skills and help me achieve my aim.

Given the information you've provided, I don't see how Duncan's advice is 'too generic.'

How's this for generic advice: get into the best MBA program you can.

The responses are often not encouraging because the career outcomes of lesser-ranked schools, especially online MBA programs from these schools, are objectively not great. With the Durham program, or another ranked school such as Bradford for example, you'd have a much better chance at verifiable salary / career growth.
