Cranfield University- MiM and Corporate Sustainability


Hello,
I have an offer from Cranfield for Masters in Management and Corporate Sustainability.
Cranfield was my 1st choice, however given my academics (9.6 cgpa, but no GMAT) people are suggesting me better universities. In fact, saying Cranfield is not good enough.

Does anyone know anyone,or have studied this particular specialisation at Cranfield? What would the job opportunities be like after graduating? I am a biotechnology graduate,therefore it would be better to go for something that's not core management.

Thank you! Suggestions/advices are welcome.

Not much. However, I did come across someone who's pursuing the course. Her review was good, but nothing on employment so far.

I see very few opportunities for people with degrees in sustainability, and few of these degrees are designed for employers needs rather than students' preferences. The situation was not very different ten years ago when I wrote this https://www.influencerrelations.com/1329/is-sustainable-business-selfish-or-altruistic

Hi,
Thanks for your prompt responses.

I did a little background research after reading your article. Surprisingly, CSR is still one of the most sought-after specialisation according to an article.
In any case, will getting my degree from Cranfield give me an edge over others? I mean, the rankings are pretty good, however most are based on MiM or MBA.
How's Cranfield's reputation amongst employers, in general?

I think CSR degrees are sought more by applicants than CSR graduates are by employers, for the reasons I explain in my post.

Cranfield is certainly an excellent business school that is respected by employers, and that's why it's one of the top 20 executive education providers in Europe: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/executive-education-open-2019 .

PS Tobe clear, however, I think a masters in general management of in finance is a better foundation for a CSR job hunt.
