These are all good, but not excellent schools. At the undergraduate level, they are all in the top 5% for student placement. With their MBAs, however, the applicants won't be at the same high level. I would assume that none of them can place more than two in three students. 

Exeter: Prosperous and certainly the nicest city, and the best weather. Pretty posh university, and the most selective of these business schools at the undergraduate level. An expensive town, with below-average unemployment. MBA is ranked by The Economist.

Loughborough: Big campus university. Famous for sports and aviation. Many students in the MBA are attracted by its internship option (although you need to find the internship) and its closeness to London. Cheapest city on the list. Students are very satisfied with it and, generally, students on big UK campus universities are much happier than those in city centres. Average unemployment in the city.

Sheffield: One of the top 100 universities worldwide. Top university for jobs in the north of England. For management research, I'd say it's slightly edged out by Exeter. Both Sheffield and Exeter are in the Russell Group of top research universities. Sheffield is a post-industrial city that is improving but has above-average unemployment.
