Accepted: Cass, Manchester, Lancaster - Which one should I go for?


redink

Hi All,

I have been accepted to Cass, Manchester and lancaster 2011 FT MBA. And now I am confused as to which school should I finalize.
I have a 50% scholarship from Manchester but my personal choice is Cass because of its location (london) and job opportunities etc. I am not able to convince myself on why Lancaster over others?
I am really looking for some opinion from you all.

Kindly suggest.

Thanks in advance!!

Depends on the type of job you want after. If finance, CASS, if consultancy/general management, Manchester.

Don't be fooled by the 'its close to London' argument. If its a better course, always go for that. This is commonly used by lower grade universities (Middlesex, London Metropolitan etc) to get people through the door.

Job opportunities are based on three key things, in this order:

1. You - What you can offer the employer above everyone else (experience, capability/competence, attitude, whether they like you and think you'll fit in). This is commonly forgotten by MBA aspirants/grads who think its all about the qualification.

2. Qualification - Quality of school, course, alumni. Most of the best MBA schools are not in the centre of leading cities.

3. Luck - Sometimes you have opportunities other don't.

Thanks lemming176.

I did my research while applying to Cass and Manchester and both the schools are aligned with my aspirations and post MBA goals.

What I am trying to find out is that whether any one of the schools listed above has any significant advantage over the other e.g. more preferred by recruiters, better brand name etc. and others you have already listed in point 2.

Considering you have relevant data on all these points above, which school would you recommend?
