Among Warwick, Lancaster, Imperial, Edinburgh, which does suit my profile better


Evan2007

Yeah, that's a pretty good profile. I think you can aim for the business schools in the UK or anywhere.

Why the preference for LUMS? Don't get me wrong: I've heard it's a great program, but why that one specifically?

Hi Evan,

Thanks. I prefer UK because the univs here have 1 yr MBA programs. What attracts me to LUMS is the ranking and then 3 real projects where you get to work with different types of SMEs. Also, I have started my own company recently and I have another project which I would pursue soon after completing my MBA.
So, the important things for me are good alumni network, real projects, and reputation of university.

Evan, if you could help me with some suggestions about other good universities. Also, What are my prospect in warwick?

Thanks,

That makes good sense to me! Lancaster sounds like a good fit.

I don't think I could really add anything about U.K. programs that hasn't already been said here. Warwick has one strongest reputations in the UK, but will probably be comparable to Lancaster's internationally.

Best of luck!

Warwick has a far better reputation internationally than Lancaster. Other than FT ranking, Lancaster is considered 3rd Tier, behind LBS, Oxford, Cambridge, Cranfield, Warwick and Manchester. Imperial is improving, and could be considered a part of this group now.

Lancaster is in the tier below, with CASS, Edinburgh and Ashridge. Only real concern I had when applying to Lancaster was the 'mediocre' recruiters the business school attracted. If the best MBA recruiters aren't interested in the school, employers longterm probbaly won't be either.

I fully endorse lemming views, Lancaster is 3rd tier school with no attention by high profile employers. I dont know how it has been able to make on FT ranking. My suggestion is go for Warwick or Imperial, they are second tier as compared to Oxbridge and LBS, though a good choice for a given profile.

Hi Anusha,
I think you have a fair chance of getting through Strathclyde, Aston, Birmingham, Bradford . you can also try for City university (CASS Business School)

Hey i dont think that you should go for 21 month program as the opportunity cost will be very high for you as compared to 12 months program.
