FT MBA UK-Lancaster, Bath, Starthclyde, Newcastle and Leeds


Hi Experts and Friends,

I am holding offers with scholarship from Lancaster, Bath, Starthclyde, Newcastle and Leeds for full time MBA.
I am having 8 years of rich experience in strategic sourcing and project management. Post MBA I would like to work in UK for at least two years to take benefit of PSW, preferably in consulting
Among these options BATH is having highest fees and fees of Newcastle is lowest (almost double difference.)
Leeds has delayed its session and going to start in Jan-21. Considering current COVID-19 situation this is good move and its fees is 22.5 K GBP.
I am really confused now, which one to decide and what should be the basis?
Shall I give preference to ranking or fees?
Request to experts and friends, who are in same boat and took the decision, Please guide me.
PS: I am not having GMAT score so did not applied in higher rank colleges and get regret from Edinburgh and Durham.

Since your goal is to find work, your should focus on which course gets the highest percentage of its students into work. Fees should not be a factor in your chouce.

Take the GMAT and aim for schools in the FT ranking. Did you receive straight-up rejections from Edinburgh and Durham? Maybe if you submit a GMAT score it might help. 

The schools you have been accepted at are good, but aren't really the best schools to help international students make that transition.
