Lancaster MBA


kio
Hey everyone,

I have a few questions I hope you can help me with:
I have MBA offers from Lancaster, Birmingham and possibly Bond University in Australia? I have no idea which one I should pick, any suggestions? I dream about breaking into management consulting, hopefully one of the big companies (m/b/b). Is this possible or would you guys advise me to take a year of to improve my profile, in order to get into warwick/cass/imperial? LBS or Insead is unfortunately out of my reach financially.

Thanks Kio

Who are you? What's your background? Why did you apply to Bond?

If you want to work for McKinsey, Bain or BCG in the UK, the top schools are:
INSEAD
London Business School
Harvard Business School
University of Cambridge
University of Oxford
Wharton
Columbia University
Northwestern University.

You would stand no chance with those firms coming with an MBA from Lancaster or Birmingham, sorry. You need to reset your career goals, or get into a top-tier MBA. No short-cuts.

From Lancaster or Birmingham, you could target MC roles at:
IBM
Deloitte
PwC / PwC Consulting
Ernst & Young
PA Consulting Group
Accenture
KPMG / KPMG Advisory
