>I have done lots of research and come to know that all above universities are of same reputation.<

You are absolutely true...all of them belong to the same pack...its not only difficult but rather impossible to list out minute differences between the 4 schools. I suggest you contact the career service dept of the individual Unis and ask them to provide the count of student placed though career service alone. this might give you an idea.

I had inquired with the career services of an University and the Business School faculty was happy to give the email id of an alumnus who shares the same nationality as mine. Since the ID was a corporate email hence it was 100% authentic.

the person as an ex student was very helpful and clarified many doubts and yes, that was my first step in networking! lol!

You should also get a contact like that.

Hi,

All the schools you mentioned are not great in any way,

the schools you mentioned are more than 100 years old school that is the only good thing about them, they take freshers too, so u wont learn much.But all the school's you have mentioned have good ranking

http://extras.timesonline.co.uk/tol_gug/gooduniversityguide.php?subject=BUISINESS

http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/table/2009/may/12/university-guide-business-management-studies


But remember none of them have any accredations like AMBA,AACSB and EQUIS, which means no quality education.

My advice, if u get into the schools keep ur options as
1.Aberdeen
2.Heriot watt
3.Bangor
4.Liverpool

hi

if you have good academic record(above 70%), and have good work experience(above 2years), i really dont recommend you the schools you have mentioned since you are looking for job.My personal favourites from UK which i think can mold your carrier into right direction would be

Oxford
Cambridge
Ashridge
Cranfield
Imperial College
Bath
Exeter
London School of Economics(No MBA but MS)
Warwick
St Andrew(no MBA but MS)
Lancaster
Aston
Strathclyde
City
Nottingham
Leicester
Manchester
Durham
Birmingham
Glasgow
Hull
Surrey
Edinburgh
University College London
Bradford
Reading
Cranfield

1.Aberdeen
2.Heriot watt
3.Bangor
4.Liverpool
The above mentioned school's by you , are not really good for job prespective, it would be just like you have done a degree MBA, and remember the schools i have mentioned have almost the same fee as the schools mentioned by you, and also i would like to inform you, your expenditure in uk would be nothing less than 800GBP per month.

time is running, most of the schools i have mentioned have by now closed there application for Sep-2009 intake, try to apply ASAP for the schools,

all de best.

Exeter, St. Andrew, Leicester, Hull and Surry are not that good for post-grad level in business related studies.

regarding expenses, u r quite right...If one doesnt lead an extravagant life style the avg fooding expense wont be more than £250 and the living cost £400 max. If choose to stay outside London then the cost will decrease by another £100.

st.andrews is one of the top 5 uni of UK, studying there means, any degree is well recognized globally,

Leicester and exeter hav been rated as top business school always, when u check any ranking, and also has AMBA Accredation, so quality guaranteed,

Surrey is super good too as it not only has AMBA, it has AACSB too, which only 12 more Uk business schools have, have means ur degree is recognized by America too.

also i would like to mention ,not to depend on part time job's, as that would affect your MBA

Thanks massey and nblublaze

I have my academics as 78.80% SSc, 71.67% HSC, 65.66% in Bach. of Engineering (IT) and have almost 2 years of exp in software MNC (working till date).
The only problem with the list provoded by you is that, the all AMBA accridiated universities require 3 years of work exp (3 yrs is there min requirement but tha average work exp is 6-7 years).that means i have to wait for 2-3 years And i cant think after 2-3 years i will be prepared for going abroad.
Thats why i hav choosen the 4 universities which are good in ranking and in my budget.
Only aim i thought is that to have an MBA degree in 1 year.and in next 2 years job i will repay my loan.Then i will return back to my country.(India).thats it.
Just give me a frank and friendly advice, as its a very though decision of my life. (Im planning for Sept 09 intake in extreme condition it will be feb-10)
Hope U both reply ur views.(Anyone else's view also appritiated)

Hi Harish,
I go with what Massey has told about the universities in uk. My personal suggestion is that you wait for one more year , have your gmat / ielts preparation in the mean time and then step into the MBA course. I am having nearly 4 years experience in IT industry and has been accepted for a MBA course in University of Surrey for September-2009. The accreditations that Massey mentioned is one of the key factors and dont judge a university without considering this criteria.

Hope you might have found the right thing by now.
