Help plz: Warwick vs Cass vs IE vs Imperial Tanaka


jucacip

Hello,

After score a very low GMAT (610), and despite the discouraging advice received, I decided to follow my heart and applied to some schools.

So far I was admitted to Warwick and Cass and I did interview with IE last week (awaiting the decision). About Imperial College (Tanaka), I have interview scheduled for next week.

Additionally, I submited also to INSEAD and LBS, but my chances with these school are slim (to not say nill). I already have been rejected in Cambridge.

The problem is that I'll have to choose between Warwick and Cass (and possibly IE) before knowing the decision of Imperial, LBS and INSEAD.

So, which school would you choose between Cass and Warwick? And if you add IE to the list? And how you rate Imperial among the others? I don´t talk about LBS and INSEAD because if, by some miracle, I get admission in any of them, therefore there will be no discussion possible.

What I'm looking for in MBA is to improve my managment skills to keep working in industry. I hope to have a greater management role (after MBA), more so than a technical one. So, I want to focus in leadership and strategy. I have also a small own business, so entrepreneurship is also a target.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Cheers

If enterpreneurship is your thing, then go to Imperial.
It's a 1 year program, then at the end of the program, you need to write a Thesis.

However, in my opinion, IE & ESADE still have the best enterpreneurship programs in Europe because their amazing enterpreneurship platform. It's simply amazing.

People who go to CASS, usually targeting Finance jobs in London. Then those who go to Warwick, tends to be Consultant-wannabies.

Are you taking cost into account? Because if so Warwick may give you a higher ROI at £21k-odd, and this is before cost of living. If you already have experience running small businesses, you may want to complement this with more consulting-inclined skills as the previous poster mentioned..

Both are top 100 schools (both within the top 50 in the FT I believe)

Cass: Finance jobs in London including consultancy roles in Financial services. Great location and company connections. (MBA £31,000) Probably better ROI, based on the fact that you go into an FS role in London.

Warwick: Famously good place to study if you're interested in management consultancy. (MBA £21,400)

thanks to all the opinions. In fact, right now my choice is restricted to IE vs ESADE vs. Imperial, once I've refused the offers from Warwick and Cass.

My doubt is London or Spain and I think this will be the most important factor in my decision, since the 3 are excellent schools and is difficult to compare them directly.

Thank you

You should join the IE MBA November 2010 facebook group. There is a discussion about what is asked in the interview you can find there. This has also been discussed on other threads on this message board.

I think Cass Business School lets you do more and be more creative in different areas. For example, I saw this video shot by a final year BSc student in Cass Business School who's doing a series of interviews on ethics and business education.

@jucacip:
I'm surprised you choose Imperial over CASS.

Quick question for everyone: what are the so called specialities that these Business schools have? apparently CASS is known for finance, Warwick for consultancy..so please what are the others known for? I'm curious to know because I'm interested in finance but don't really want to school in London. I'd like to my MBA in the UK but not in London.
