Hi,

I checked on LinkedIn there is no clear connection between the discussion being done here (with respect to BS ratings) and graduates on higher positions in actual (i am taking about middle east only).

70% of HULL or HULT graduates have good positions in large companies (middle east only). So i think most of the recommendation being given here are for pursuing career in UK / US

Please comment.

I'm not sure what point you are making. If you are saying that global business school rankings are not enough to determine placement success in an individual country, then I think we all agree.

The LinkedIn approach I outline in the post above mentions location, and that's a key filter to use when researching country-specific questions in services like LinkedIn.

The LinkedIn approach notwithstanding - wouldn't it make more sense to do an MBA in the Middle East if that's where you want to end up working?

Hult and Hull both offer EMBAs in the gulf. Perhaps that's why they seem to have a strong network there?

Razors: i am not saying to study in middle-east but my intention is to keep working in middle-east in future so when searched through LinkedIn that which school has more graduates in ME region i found that Warwick and Manchester(best schools as per this forum/ratings) has lowest number..

Ducan: May be you are right these both offer EMBA in gulf

Are you using "MBA" as a keyword? You might be picking up people who have taken other courses at Hull. But Hull is certainly not a terrible choice.

I think Strathclyde is a strong choice because it has a campus there.

The University of Warwick first admitted graduate students in 1964, and is relatively young for a top flight UK university.
They don?t have the ancient moneyed background of Oxford and Cambridge, but they are only just behind them in many league tables. Instead they offer entrepreneurial flair, ambition, and business acumen. These attributes equally characterise their students. This is best for MBA.

That's just silly. Warwick is the #29 MBA, which is good but you can't say it's the best: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/global-mba-ranking-2013

Also, this person is looking at the UAE. Could it be that a top 30 school that has a permanent EMBA campus in the UAE, like Insead, London Business School or Manchester Business School could be better for this candidate?

I totally agree with Ducan. No doubt WBS is one of the best ones but one cant say its "the best" there are many other which are competing WBS very well

I am searching for the B-schools which are renowned in middle-east "employers" but i will prefer to study via UK campus.

It's very hard to comment about LSBF because they have used quite aggressive legal threats about comments I and others have made on this site about them in the past. Let me just say that, having had friends study there, there are no occasions when I would recommend it.

However, I will comment on Concordia University St. Paul. It has an online MBA which is not accredited (https://www.aacsb.net/eweb/DynamicPage.aspx?Site=AACSB&WebCode=AccredSch) and costs around 16k GBP. The LBSF MBA costs less than that. Concordia is not mentioned on the LSBF website. http://www.lsbf.org.uk/school/partners.html
