Read the post about LinkedIn on my profile page. I think you can work this out. In Germany of course the bigger questions are not which Fachhochschule did you attend but how strong are your acculturation and professional level of German.

Thanks @Duncan. 

I  do read about your post on how to search using LinkedIn (Alumni base). I could able to find more alumni from warwick into operations management but handful from other mentioned schools (Bath, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Starthclyde, Lancaster
). Since post study work visa is now opened in the UK, in your opinion which school is good, Since I will not have a chance at Warwick with my GMAT. 

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Do you really need an MBA to become a consultant in manufacturing/operations? What consultancies are you interested in working for? Research what kinds of masters degrees such consultants have. I suspect it's more likely to be an MSc than an MBA.

For the UK, what about a course like the MSc Engineering Business Management at Warwick? Or Operations Excellence MSc at Cranfield which has been developed with Cambridge University and Rolls Royce?

@aslamo - Thanks for the reply. I was doing some research in the course you suggested. I want to work in a reputed manufacturing companies such as Rolls Royce/ Gkn, Nissan or in consultancy as Accenture or Deloitte. 


Operations Excellence MSc is part time. I came across Engineering and Management of Manufacturing Systems from Cranfield. The modules also good. 

I got admit from Bath SOM for MBA but Cranfield MSc course is much more favorable for employment and Tier 2 Visa sponsorship. Please let me know your thoughts. I am waiting for reply from Cranfield.
