Sheffield OR Durham OR Glasgow OR Other


Hi,

I got an offer from three top universities Sheffield, Durham and Glasgow from UK for full time MBA. I have an experience of 5.6 years in software engineering with IELTS score 7.0. I do not have GMAT score. Should i go for any of above universities.

1) if YES then which one should I go for. Career placement is my first preference
2) if NO, can someone prefer me good ranking universities around the world (preferably USA or other parts of Europe without UK) without GMAT

Thanks

Thanks Duncan,

I believe Sheffield, Durham and Glasgow has triple accreditation. Isn't it a value for money to study in above these schools, also wanted to check if you know the placement facilities about any of above three?

Bro,No doubt these are well recognized schools but doing an Mba from B-school which requires Gmat will offer you much better returns on the completion of your programs ,since career placement is your first preference you should opt for more better schools and take the Gmat and you being an Engineering graduate,it would not be that difficult for you to crack the gmat...
Remember this : Better Schools/Students attract better Employers (Mr.Duncan's Quote)

Also in the least case i would suggest you to go for Durham since its ranked quite higher than the other two

Thanks Prank, That was informative. I would look for GMAT options as well. Any idea about the placements in above three schools ?

Dear Prashant, what the others have suggested regarding taking a GMAT is certainly recommended. However, foremost prioritize your goals. You plan to enroll for MBA for a career switch, a cross industry mobility or a middle management position within the same industry. Also, consider the time that you want to spend on MBA i.e. 1yr vs 2 yrs programs in US and other countries. Further, consider the budget factor because aiming for the TOP b schools requires similar financial commitment. So take a decision based on all the factors.

I think what Duncan was getting at is what your goals are after the MBA.

Agreed with other posters that you should take the GMAT.

You should ask the schools directly for info about placements. They don't make this info public, but they should be able to give you a sense of where grads end up: ask them specifically about graduates who have similar profiles and goals as you.
