Dear All,

I need kindly to know why don’t you recommend so much University of Leicester business school?
What are the disadvantages of it?
Should i avoid it completely? And it isn’t worth an investment? Although this’s the most conventient to me costwise and also it doesn’t need IELTS.
I’m pretty hurry to catch in a program, and they are almost the only option that i can join quickely without further tests ( like IELTS and GMAT).
My goals are:
- reputable university
- good education and knowlegable program
- accredited school and program
- no differentiation between Online and full time courses in certificate or discrete.
-if not Leicester, what are your recommendations?

Thank you all for your input

It looks like you are talking about the online MBA.
https://le.ac.uk/courses/the-leicester-mba-dl/2018

As far as I can see on entry requirements there is this: "IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. If your first language is not English, you may need to provide evidence of your English language ability."
Which is expected in every university. You will have to prove your english level
You may want to do the TOEFL exam, it should be easier. Although I recommend the Cambridge Advanced or Cambridge Proficiency

The Leicester MBA is accredited AMBA, and you also get CMI qualification included. It is decent one and decently priced. The university itself is reputable with decent brand name at £14850

The thing is, at £18000 there is Birmingham triple accredited, and I'd say it is worth the extra £3150
And at £16500 ($22000) there is illinois, which is most definitely worth the extra £1500!
And at same price range there is Strathclyde (although the two weekends face-to-face will increase the cost)

So it is a matter of competition, the other options at same price, like illinois, are simply superior. People here will tend to offer the best possible option, but it is always good idea to apply to more than one university so applying to Leicester along with other online MBA programs, sounds good idea

Why not take a degree in marketing, if you want a marketing job? Surely a CIM-accredited masters would be a good option?

Why not take a degree in marketing, if you want a marketing job? Surely a CIM-accredited masters would be a good option?


The post that i’m welling for, is business unit manager or could be like a regional manager which needs sort of business administration also not only marketing knowledge

I’m thinking of Leicester as i can make some campus visits to Leicester or Dubai ( by the cost difference between Leicester and others like Birmingham).

So i’ll be benefited by attending a campus and not having a purely distance learning, also Leicester sounds like it has a good connections and reputation in middle east as it has a campus in Dubai.

What’s your opinion? Sounds make sense?!
Or still Birmingham or illinois names and programes could defeat the benefit of attending a campus for couple of days every 6 months in Dubai or Leicester?

I would talk to Leicester, and ask about who is typically in each MBA cohort. Face-to-face learning can be great, but I'm not sure if that is enough of a benefit over the other, better programs you're looking at. However, another benefit of in-class learning is networking - and if Leicester is recruiting the kind of people you want to network with—ie, people in the industries / locations where you want to work—then it could be worth it.
