Bath vs Manchester


IanF2

As someone with a background as an auditor and then (currently) in financial analysis, I'm looking to shift my career into consulting, and so would like to study an MBA focused on that. I've taken close looks at Bath and Manchester as good options for me if GMAT allows.

The costs for Manchester are considerably higher than Bath. Is this generally justified? How much better regarded is Manchester and would salary expectations and employability vary considerably between these two options? Manchester is of course better ranked, but costs are a considerable factor for me.

I'd appreciate any opinion, help, guidance, rant, etc.
