Lancaster has a similar decline, I think most UK schools will have fallen because of the fall of the pound and the weaker interest in hiring nonUK students. Manchester was always a good option for career changers, and I guess there is less demand for them too.

True here, Duncan.
If you remember me, I asked the question about Manchester global MBA before in this forum.
I spent time today in Illinois iMBA program which is attractive to me again due to the low tuition fee and share the same professors as fulltime MBA.
Read this article https://poetsandquants.com/2018/05/11/illinois-graduates-1st-cohort-from-22k-imba/3/ too and the story of Zubair Ahmad attracts me a lot.

1. Does Illinois iMBA have the same degree as full time MBA from University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign?
2. Which program do you recommend me? Manchester global MBA or Illinois iMBA? (I felt both program will teach me a lot, Illinois iMBA seems does not require essay at the end of program which can be a pro)

1. Yes it's the same.
2. Illinois seems better value and low risk unless you are targeting a country where MBS has a stronger network.

I will probably work in Sweden (Where I am working right now) or south Asia/China (Where I am from) in future. Currently I am working in the automotive industry. Probably I need to search more in Linkedin to have a better picture which one is more valuable for me. However, my criteria for MBA at this stage is focus on the teaching quality and my personal learning possibility regarding general management, leadership etc. Networking is not my priority (A lot of forum says Network is most important though).

Illinois iMBA admission requirements actually are not low and I checked today and I believe that the competition is intensive. I will have the initial application to see if I can skip GRE/GMAT and IELTS to get the admission.

Yes, Illinois is getting very hard.

Durham's rise can be explained partly by the reduction of the percentage of female students from 67% to 44%. Male students earn more, and that drives the rankings.

In a way, it is good for iMBA program in long term.
I may have to attend GMAT and TOEFL tests.

Durham needs you to finish the program within 2 years. The tuition fee is yearly based.

Additionally, male students are more likely to be in higher management positions and provide better network. Statistically women are much less likely to be in senior management (sadly) and this reflects in the networking of the cohort

Good point!
It makes perfect sense.
Why female students drop in Durham? Manchester probably has OTHER good reason why it drops so fast since the percentage of female students 40% in 2018 report and in 2019 it only drops to 39% which is pretty similar.

I don't know if this generalization - Durham recruited fewer female students, so they dropped in the ranking - is the whole story.

Look at some of the schools listed in the ranking where the class was majority female: USC, where the % female was 52 percent, rose in the ranking (59 --> 46), where the % female was much lower last year (32%)

Fudan also: the previous year's ranking reported a majority female students in the surveyed class (57%). This year, the surveyed class' % female had increased to 65%, and the school rose in the ranking, with better salary and salary increase stats versus last year.

The reality is a bit more complex. More likely,

You have analyzed a lot about it.
Originally I have decided to apply for Manchester Global MBA program but recently I have started to consider to apply for illinois iMBA since it is almost 40% cheaper and it seems iMBA has decent teaching quality with good university reputation.

I suspect that the gender pay gap is smallest in LA and larger in the places where Durham MBAs are hired.

The Illinois program is highly regarded. If you're looking for something in the UK - due to network, etc. - you might also consider programs like Bradford's MBA Distance Learning, which is a better value than Manchester's program and is ranked.

I actually don’t know which university network works for me. I mainly work in Sweden and China. Sweden does not promote MBA such thing. China only values the highly ranked universities.

In this case, either illinois or Manchester suits the need.
