Sirad
Hi everyone, I am 31 years old, 7 years of experience in FMCG(fast moving consumer goods). At the present time, I hold conditional offers for MBA in Aston and Kingston Business School, additionally I hold one offer in Cranfield for Msc Strategic Marketing. I came to uk to study and improve my English as required by those conditionals offers. Currently, I am living in Reading, hence Henley Business School has came accross as another possible option.
I am thinking of taking the Gmat in March and if I get a decent score, I would apply for the Cranfield MBA as well. However I would like to know what would you say If I failed in getting the Gmat score and I would have to choose among: Aston, Kingston or Reading MBA and Cranfield Msc in Strategic Marketing.
Regards

Take your time. Think about your career goals. If you want to stay in marketing, study marketing at Lancaster or Cranfield. Since you have experience, Lancaster may be better.

If you want to get out of the marketing function, do an MBA. Cranfield is not that much better than Aston or Henley: they are all good schools.

Hi Duncan, I have to say I am quite impressed by your opinion. Judging from FT ranking, Cranfield comes across as the strongest MBA. Beside, Cranfield's fees are the more expensive by far.
The Aston MBA´s programme seems to be practical enough and it´s been rising on the FT ranking. It has been qualified as the best programme in value for money, however alumni ´salary after degree is not high as Cranfield, Manchester or Warwick.
My main objetive is to stay in the Uk for a while for this reason I am looking for the best option among the BS mentioned, basically that one that provide me with the most attractive porfile after studies
Thanks

Indeed, a Cranfield MBA is generally better. But an MSc from Cranfield is a different profile from an MBA from Henley. That's why you need to start with the goal in mind.
