The MSc in international business at Aston is the only one to take seriously. Generally, courses in international business are rather academic in nature. If you're looking at Bradford, consider their MSc in management; at Strathclyde, the MBM is very good - certain better than the Aston MSc in international business in terms of careers progress, salary, value for money and employment.

The data are at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2012

Of course the best pre-experience courses in the UK are the most expensive: the MSc. degrees in management at City, Imperial, LBS, LSE and Warwick.

No, those freshers' MBAs are not good. The ranked MSc degrees are much better.

Read my posts above.

Of the courses you mention, the one at Aston is best.

However, there are other courses. Look at the FT ranking. I suggest you go to the best school you can from that list. That might be Aston.

No, I did not say that. I said the *MBM* at Strathclyde was better than the *MSc in IB* at Aston "in terms of careers progress, salary, value for money and employment", and that if you are looking at Bradford, then the MSc in management is better than its MSc in IB.

PS I suggest you focus on the programmes in the FT ranking that I linked to. Generally Aston and Strathclyde are better than Bradford in terms of student outcomes, but you need to compare specific courses too: for example I imagine an MSc in finance from Bradford will have better outcomes than an Aston MSc in HRM.

Well, if you're goal is a functional management role in a family business exporting or importing from your home country, then IB is good. If you want the widest range of choices, then the MBM is excellent: it's a general management degree with strong soft skills and an upgrade option to an MBA after a few years. Generally, the higher a course is on that ranking, the better it will be.

In that case, do get into the very best MSc programme that you can. The FT ranking is very reliable but also look at the salary data if two schools have similar rankings.

That really depends on your career goals. The best UK schools are all in London: The LSE, Imperial, Cass and I should have mentioned the London campus of ESCP as well. The MiM at London Business School is too new to be in the rankings, but I am sure that is also excellent.

I think for most students the best choice in the UK are the two year programmes: the LSE and ESCP. They have excellent internship options, good international opportunities and also have the highest salaries for graduating students.

No, not for their MSc degrees, although a year or so would be helpful... but that's the sort of question you can answer yourself by visiting their websites.

ESCP - Students have 16 months, on average http://www.escpeurope.eu/mim

LSE - http://www.lse.ac.uk/management/programmes/msc/masters-in-management/home.aspx
