Manchester vs Warwick MBA


blibot

Hello,
i got accepted in both Manchester (Global MBA) and Warwick (DL MBA). Manchester even proposed me the accelerated program 18 month.

I am a bit confused, and i want to decide quickly. could you please help me.

I am looking for more practical than too much theory. even if this is a distance learning, I am interested to meet with people.
I am based in Germany and not necessarily fixed to work only in Germany.

thank you in advance for your help.

The Manchester programme has a lot of projects, so it's more practical, I'd say.

thank you for the hint.I am based in Germany and looking to change industry probably in Germany. I do not know what it the reputation of those 2 business schools in Germany. When i see some big companies like Siemens, they ask for big MBA schools for some positions (CEO program), these two are not listed as examples, but not sure it is a no go for them to select somebody not in this list (Insead, HEC, LBS, etc.). I am afraid to invest on 30-40k and not have benefits on general management . your thoughts, opinions are more than welcome.

They are schools of a *very* high standard. But if you are looking for roles that are given to Harvard, HEC, Insead, IESE, IMD, LBS graduates then they are, obviously, better than Warwick and MBS.

clear.one more question about Global MBA accelerated in Manchester It looks like it is comparable to EMBA, as the participants are more executives and seniors, it's also by invitation only, and 20 in classe vs 80 for the normal Global MBA.Is my though correct ?

The Accelerated programme I know (https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/masters/courses/list/08502/mba-manchester-global-mba-finance-accelerated/) is for candidates with professional accountancy qualifications such as ACCA and CIMA. I don't think those the participants are more likely to be senior executives; they are more likely to be accountants. 

The&nbsp;<span style="color: rgb(52, 53, 54); font-family: &quot;Open Sans&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 16px;">Accelerated programme I know (</span><a href="https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/masters/courses/list/08502/mba-manchester-global-mba-finance-accelerated/">https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/masters/courses/list/08502/mba-manchester-global-mba-finance-accelerated/</a><span style="color: rgb(52, 53, 54); font-family: &quot;Open Sans&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 16px;">) is for candidates with professional accountancy qualifications such as ACCA and CIMA.

Ah, I just read this: "Candidates with at least 8 years senior management experience may have the opportunity to join the Global MBA Accelerated programme. This closed multinational cohort travels around the world to complete the programme in 18 months with no difference in fees."
It sounds like the accelerated path is also the pathways available to students in Singapore: https://www.manchester.edu.sg/programmes/manchester-global-mba-part-time-18-months/ 

PS I'm not sure who will be in the classroom but, surely, everyone knows that the AMBS EMBA is the Kelley programme.

I was finally following your advice Duncan, and also from some others to apply for the Executive MBA rather than a standard MBA.

I applied for HEC EMBA where I got accepted. At the same time, I am waiting the answer from Oxford and LBS. I will try maybe to apply to IESE as well.
