Senior Construction Manager wants advice for MBA from Expert

The CEU is excellent value for money. If its curriculum gives you what you need then speak to some.of their Indian alumni before you pay the deposit.

Why does the Lancaster MSc not work for you, if you want to work in India?

Lancaster India courses are not relevant for me...
PGDBM is two yrs. and Msc is Marketing oriented....

CEU reviews are saying that schools professors are not knowledgable and well read.
Only theoritical lessons are taught and practical case study is not prevelant.

I'm sorry but you are quite mistaken, as I explained below. The Lancaster campus in Indian has two management masters: An MSc in management, and MSc in management and marketing. The PGDM is two years, but the MSc degrees are both one year.

The CEU reviews sound contradictory: if the professors are theoretical, how can they not be well-read? CEU is a well-respected research-centred university that sends a lot of people into top graduate programmes.

On the other hand, indeed, if you want a case-study based course then you will need to look hard for a different setting. Case study classes work well in the USA, because of the greater enthusiasm for speaking up and disagreeing in the classroom. In continental Europe or East Asia, for example, it's harder and schools typically use a mixture of lectures, case studies and group work. With the reviews I found on studyportals from masters students (http://www.stexx.eu/search/?q=elv-ma|hor-1|tor-79&start=0&length=10) the experience looks similar to that at other well-ranked schools in Europe.

You won't find a school with only positive reviews.

Dear Duncan,

You are correct.
Lancaster India has MSc in Management but this is not relevant as I already have one MBA.
People with strong experience and MBA (part time ) are advised to take up MSc in Finance or other subjects of interest. MSc in Management is just an extension of MBA meant for young grads with no experience ( I read this logic in many business school portals )

Now I am trying to contact CEU alumni of India for better understanding....
