Choice between UBC, Exeter & Warwick for Social Impact/ Sustainability MBA


AlexsMar

Hi there,

I come from an Arts Management background (8 years experience) and I'm looking to pivot into the Social Impact/Sustainability sector. I'm interested in exploring my career options in Supply Chain Management (circular economy), Consulting or Change Management. I've been accepted to UBC, Warwick and Exeter University (also Nottingham, although it's not as high on my list right now). I'm in Vancouver, but interested in expanding my career globally, and starting in the UK seems like a good start (I have EU citizenship, as well).

So far, I am most drawn to Exeter University, but am still weighing up the prestige of Warwick, considering it has a good integration of Sustainability content woven throughout the program.

Coming from Canada, and in the middle of a pandemic, this decision weighs even harder.

Does the Exeter MBA have a good reputation in the UK/EU?

Can you find some people in LinkedIn who have the sort of roles you are looking for? What are their backgrounds? I see lots of rhetoric about social impact but not a lot of entry level hiring of MBA. 

If you arrive in the UK this year, then you can get pre-settled status.

What would be your goals with a degree like this? 

In general the best advice is to aim as high as you can and not worry so much about a 'specialization.' You should be able to find enough electives to get by, and with a more general, higher ranked degree you'd have many more options after graduation.
