I am aware this isn't specifically in regards to an MBA, however Im stuck for anyone else who may know solid info about b-schools that I can actually ask, so any general info would be greatly appreciated, even if its just about the overall reputation of the schools im looking at.
Im a 21 y/o British student who has just graduated this year from the University of Sussex in Biomedical Science. I scored 86% average (so a good first), and ranked top of the entire Biomedicine cohort in both 2nd and third years, and won the School of Life Sci Biomedical Prize for attaining the best overall degree average.
However, given my career goals, business interests and personal skillset, im more keen to go into business management / business development, with the intent of eventually getting into pharmaceutical business consultancy/ development.
Im looking at Management conversion courses that specialise in students not having a pre-existing knowledge of business, and do not require work experience - and the ones im looking at currently are; Manchester, Durham, Birmingham, Lancaster and Bath. Potentially also Warwick (albeit whilst finances are not a problem for me, its fee's are much more expensive than the others listed), I may apply here too.
I have spoken with admissions officers informally from Birmingham and Bath, and both gave hints that I would make a very strong candidate. Similarly, Manchester did inform me that I fulfill above the entry requirements and would make a competitive candidate.
Considering you all have much more business sector related insider knowledge, of these schools, which would you perhaps advise leaning towards, and similarly are there any that you would somewhat say be wary of?
As I said, I know this isnt strictly about an MBA, but any advice is welcomed. Im leaning towards Manchester at the moment, as a larger proportion of their grads go into healthcare etc, but if anyone can shed any more light that would be wonderful.
