From your comments about luxury and finance, maybe you don't have a clear sense of what your goals are. If it's just to rub elbows with clients, there are probably less costly alternatives than joining a costly EMBA program. You might for instance attend conferences where your clients might be present, or put the money into advertising.

Spending a year+ with an exclusive group of people who may or may not want to do business with you may not be the best proposition.

Dear Friends,
Hope you are doing fine. Unfortunately because of some businesses I could not deliver myself to Sep intake so Im suppose to join Feb 2020. Meanwhile I've changed of my heart. Im doing business have a company and working in procurement equipment for oil and gas industries and also do general trading. My main aim of studying master course is to take visa through student and to this excuse would be in touch with european market. As Im checking the MBA tuition fee's I see that's high and I feel its not necessary to pay such amount for tuition fee for MBA while I can study some other management or international business. Kindly guide me what is the best option for studying for me.

Well... it seems a bit wierd goal but ok. if you really only want a student visa, just go for the cheapest degree you can find in europe.

The thing is, you will probably want to get a work visa as well, and not just student visa... for that, you need a degree with good prospects, one that ranks high in "International Mobility" in the FT MBA rankings

Also, I think you would benefit a lot from some English courses.

A master's in finance or master's in management might from an FT ranked school might be more affordable. European labour markets are very national. Consider an intensive language course.

You can get in touch with the European market in many other ways than just doing an MBA. Take travel trips and arrange meetings with companies. Go take some investment capital and start a business there.

However, if you want to transition into working in a European country, you'll probably want to do a ranked program, and yes, these will be expensive.

Dear Friends,
However I reviewed, I find studying MBA in european business school or university costly. So I decided to study something same but cheaper like international business or something related in management and business criteria but I dont know what field in what university or country would be the best choice.
Meanwhile recently UK announced those whom studied in UK, can stay 2 years more after graduation which could be considered as a privilege and tempt me to have special view on that.
Kindly help to make a wise decision
Best Regards
Ali

It usually depends on your background and level of work experience.

Typically if you have more than 3-4 years of work experience, an MBA would be preferable. Not only because the course content would be calibrated towards more experienced professionals, but the career level (and salary) of the jobs that grads are hired into after an MBA are higher than those who pursue other types of programs.

A Master in International Business or other non-MBA business master's program would be more relevant to somebody who doesn't have much work experience and is at a different stage in their career.

You can see this in the data from the FT rankings. For UK MBA programs the typical salaries are in the $100k - $150k+ range while Masters in Management grads make about half that. That's three years out from graduation.

I'd also caution that while the 2 year visa addition is great for grads, it will still be relatively difficult for foreign students who study at lower ranked schools to actually find jobs in the country. So no matter which degree you pursue, choose something that's well ranked and has a strong level of career support.

Dear Laurie,
Im so thankful for your valuable reply. Actually the main reason I decided to study something different with MBA is because of high tuition fee of MBA master courses otherwise I have my own company and have about 6 years working experience which make me qualify for this study field. Im Iranian and as you may know our country is under toughest sanction ever, following this our national money lost about 70,80% of its value and covering tuition fee of MBA course in good ranked institute specially in UK is not affordable for me in the meantime. Know regarding what been told above see what is the best solution for me please. Would be appreciated if you can guide me to find economy price and top ranked MBA in uk.

Yours Sincerely
Ali

My friend, there are no economical, top-ranked, MBAs in the UK. If you want economy prices you have to look on mainland Europe. Take a look at mastersportal.com and filter by price.

I would agree in general: you pay for what you get. The issue with studying on the mainland is language: if you were to study in a country like France or Germany and wanted to work there after graduating, you would most likely need to speak either French or German fluently.

There's no great answer here, unfortunately. If you don't speak any of the mainland European languages, I would suggest sticking to the UK (or Ireland) and getting into the best school you can.

The revised visa rules are great for those who wish to stay in the UK after an MBA - and if your goal is just to spend a year or two in the UK, then fantastic - but without the resources that are available at top-ranked MBA programs, it may be hard to break even or establish a solid foothold in the country.
